We took Lily in the jacuzzi this weekend for the first time since her injury. We’ve been talking about doing so for a while, now I wish we hadn’t waited so long. We had some friends over and all the other little girls were in the jacuzzi so I asked Lily if she wanted to go, too. She gave me a long blink (her signal for “yes”) and she mouthed the the word, too. Once we got her in she was all smiles. I don’t know if she was smiling because all the bubbles were tickling her body or if it was because it was the first time she was doing exactly what the other kids were doing and for once she felt just like a normal kid.
