Fall Cupcakes

Charity decided to make some pumpkin cupcakes the other day, complete with frosting and best of all, fall themed sprinkles!

Katya was much impressed when shown the plate, and politely indicated her interest in eating one.

When Charity told her that of course she could eat one, Katya began to eat with the great seriousness that still marks her eating.

I am glad that Katya was feeling well enough for her pretty cupcake. A few posts back, you mentioned that a child from Katya's class had asked whether she was "fussy" all the time. I was wondering if there was a way to demonstrate to the other children how difficult it is for Katya not to be able to express everything she wants to. Kind of like they do sometimes for children to understand how it is to be blind..by blindfolding them and having them "find" their way around the classroom. I was thinking maybe Katya's teacher could instruct the kids that they must communicate without speaking for a period of time. I would imagine that this might cause them to feel some empathy for her as they see how difficult it is to express your needs without your voice. I am praying for good results from the CT scan. I hope you get an answer so poor Katya gets some relief from her headaches!
