Trying a new device

September 16, 2017

It’s kind of been an exciting week. My newest nephew came on Thursday evening. Labor was quick and that was definitely an answer to prayer.

And then yesterday I was introduced to what could be my newest communication device.. Well, I guess it’s more a question of when not if.. [Unless the Lord heals me, which I’m totally opened to.]

I’ve always gone with Prentke Romich devices, and they’ve never let me down. Not only do the devices seem like the best products out there, their support people are awesome. And I mean everyone from sales to service.

When my device broke this past summer, the speech-language pathologist I’ve been with for several years suggested that we go on and start looking at another device.

I’ve known there was a way to use the communication device with only your eyes.. I wear a hat that has a stick on top of it. I can not remember a time when that was not how I’ve communicated. But we’re giving this Eye Gaze thing a try.. It’s an adjustment for sure. Trying to learn that and a new device is going to be a good bit of work. I’ve only had the device two days so far. I am going to be practicing some each day.. We will see

My weekends have been a little crazy lately. And honestly, I’m on the computer later than I’d like to be on a Saturday. But I am getting a lot done, and I know that I am going to be away from everything tomorrow, which sounds great because I’m ready for time with friends.

I’ve been around family for several weekends in a row, different combinations of family. I’ve enjoyed that quite thoroughly.

I’m not sure what to say. Have been in prayer for this nation a lot. I know we’re in a mess with these hcanes. I’m praying about that too. But hurricanes happen, natural disasters are part of life.. I’m more concerned about these riots. Should we keep our monuments? Do we respect life? Do we respect authority? Leaders mess up, they’re human. We are all human.. Sighs, I have a lot more questions than answers about all this stuff. And I do not understand everything going on, I know that.

I may have bitten off more than I can think through tonight. But I am thinking and praying through these things.
