This day might just be the last of her playful self...for a while. Her desire to play is diminishing quickly as the pain takes over. Surely a child is in pain when they choose not to play because of discomfort.
Her windows of activity are narrowing, and her ability to communicate and talk are decreasing.
The day went well enough, we had some great visitors. Wes Smith also came to visit. I suppose Alice spoke more with Wes than she had all day. Alice played a trick on Wes; she had me place a mouse on his shoulder while he wasn't looking. He played the part so well and she got a good laugh out of it, and then he told Alice a story when his son played with a real mouse; and I got a good laugh out of that.

She loves to jam with Elmo.
She asked me to video her doing her mouth care...I thought it was interesting that she asked that. I am glad I did...she is so cute. It takes a long time to coax her into getting her mouth washes done. I had to pause the camera a few times while I gave her pep talks.
