|Even as a babe, Zsofia was a master stick player; now she give the rest of the WDA lessons!|
Stick chewing has become, thanks to Zsofia's tutelage, the new WDA past time. Following her lead, YoYoMa, Bela, and Sachi have all joined the trend of bringing in sticks from the yard and chewing them to shreds in the house. It helps to pass the time without disturbing their recovering sister, Puff.
Innovative pack that they are, more chewers has allowed for an added twists to just chewing...stealing each other's sticks and finishing them, for example. The most recent finessing of the game is to steal your siblings chew stick and return it to the yard with the challenge for him or her to go find it where it was dumped. The angst of losing a nearly gnawed to perfect specimen is palatable but has so far been taken in good spirits by all of the players.
Meanwhile, Puff continues on the slow road of recovery. Today she is eating voraciously and drinking much more than she has been. When taken outside, our Little Old Lady is walking around a bit and has even attempted the ramp to the house. Great signs of improvement each of these are. But she is still pretty weak and voluntarily chooses to spend most of the morning in oxygen instead of her typical 90 minutes. The cough seems to indicate things are starting to breakup and her nasal wheezing has been replaced by her huffing out gunk.
We thank you all for your kind thoughts and healing energies; your added strength fills her with wellness. We hope in a very short time, Puff The Magical will be participating in the Stick Chew Games.
