Maggie's Spring Break is over and I'm not sure who was happpier, her or me. Probably her.
She didn't get to have much fun, that's for sure. Even though we were able to get the car back on time on Friday afternoon, her wheelchair broke on Sunday meaning we couldn't really go anywhere, my excellent duct tape repair notwithstanding. It was fixed by Tuesday and then the rain started. She also spent all of Thursday morning at UCSF for a scheduled pulmonology appointment and tests. Bleak.
We did manage a trip to Macy's Union Square on Wednesday. We need a new chair for the nurses. The last one was really cheap and it didn't last at all, so we bought a nicer chair. It will arrive on Thursday. Maggie thinks watching me try out chairs is just about the funniest thing in the world, so that was a high point. Also, it is the Spring floral show at Macy's and the first floor was beautiful.
We went to the mall on Saturday and Maggie helped me shop for Sees Candy. If you have never tried Sees Candy, I can tell you you are missing something wonderful. I put this picture on facebook and about 15 people responded mentioning their favorite Sees candy. Maggie can't eat it, of course, but she had fun looking at all the beautiful selections.
Sunday the sun was out and it was a perfect day to head to the park. It was a tad chilly when you were out of the sun, but in the sunshine it was juuuuuust right.
She isn't really smiling in any of these, but she gave a HUGE grin when she saw Nurse Janice this morning. She lives for school!
Only about 8 weeks of school left, then we have to come up with more diverse outings.
