Haley Is My Hero

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." 
 ~ Christopher Reeves

Haley's Favorite Restaurant

With the addition of Haley's latest drug, Stiripentol, we have noticed Haley has more language and has been able to request to go places by "name". For example she says, "I want to go to the store". I will respond telling her we are going to the store. Haley will then say, "No, I want to go to the store with the red dot!" Of course that is Target! Recently she requested to go to the restaurant with "two doors and a pickle". I don't know what was more impressive, that she realized this restaurant, Five Guys Burgers, had two sets of doors, or that I totally understood where she wanted to go!
