March 30

We have learned ways to help Jeremy remember things. No, that is not the right way to say it. They tell us that Jeremy will need to be a note taker - Post-it's will be his friend! There is a white board in Jeremy's room with the where he is at, Elk's, room number, nurses name, meal times, etc. He kept asking when he got the casts off so we put that date on there also. It saved him from having to ask us all the time. Clues, reminders, all good things.

In speech therapy last month I saw Jeremy play a game where he couldn't follow 2 instructions in a row. Do step A and then do step B. This week I observed a different speech activity where he did much better at A, B and C.

He still has a very difficult time remembering some simple things ("where do I go for breakfast in the morning?") especially when he is tired. He asks that every night about the time he is about ready to fall asleep. We ask him, do they serve breakfast in the library or the dining room? We will continue to try and help him exercise that brain of his.

Thank you for your prayers and support!
