Sometime later she had a melt down; she and the cafeteria misunderstood each other. She wanted to order the food herself and thought they said she could have steamed rice with butter and salt. When she realized that wasn't going to happen she bawled over the phone and was upset for sometime. I rubbed her back, scratched her head until she fell asleep. It was a much needed nap. When she woke she said, "Mom, I'm really sorry, I just want to be happy." Oh Alice what a sweet thing you are. Imagine someone giving you large amounts of steroids (which make you terribly hungry) and then telling you that you can't eat anything....for several days. She is amazingly patient and cooperative considering her situation, despite the emotional meltdowns.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day...she is so excited.
