Stroke recovery: Grandkid therapy

Our little pixie Stella
Happy moments, lots of laughter and adults sharing delighted grins above the heads of diminutive philosophers.

A visit from our Georgia grands and our daughter-in-law opened with Sunday evening’s communal gobbling of Baboo’s homemade pizza and ended with Wednesday morning goodbyes before the three oldest departed for adventures at their Sea and Sail day camp. And ever since my cup of good memories is truly running over.

Monday morning was the first day for the three older siblings’ week of day camp. Youngest sibling Stella stayed with Hubby, AKA Baboo, and me while mom delivered the older kids to the camp then met friends for the morning.

One moment during that morning had me tearing up. Baboo had gone out our back door to pick tomatoes. Stella followed. A second later the back door swung back open. Stella popped back in.

“Nana,” she said. “Are you going to be all right if I leave you by yourself?”

All stroke survivors should have such effective therapy!
