Poor Kevin. He had a really rough night last night. Apparently his sitter fell asleep and was snoring so loudly that he only slept about 2 hours. The charge nurse somehow caught on to her being asleep on the job and removed her from the room twice. The second time - he had her terminated from her sitter position. He forced her to leave and he stayed in the room with Kevin the rest of the night.
I am really happy to say that Kevin is becoming better able to communicate as time goes on. He still doesn't talk much - but he is understanding things more, making it easier for us to play 'charades' to figure things out. He was able to explain to us that he only got 2 hours of sleep and he would snore so loudly showing us how bad she was.
And yesterday the nurse took his deodorant to the shower and left it in there. Kev was able to 'tell' me that too. I loved it when she argued that she brought it back and when we had her look to make sure - it turned out Kev was right and it was still in the shower room.
He is just becoming more and more observant. Super great, huh?
Other than that, nothing much happened today. We had a nice leisurely day at the house. It was funny though because he was flipping the channels and the car chase scene from Bad Boys II was on and we were all pumped to watch it and didn't we get all engrossed and after the 5 minute scene was over they started talking and it was in Spanish, lol. Me and Kev just looked at each other and burst out laughing. Obviously - we had to turn it.
So that's it. Breezy and I just came back from a ride out to scope out a house. We only have time late at night to weed out anything that's not right for us after viewing homes online. This home was just beautiful and it was already handicap accessible, but the area was dried up and desolate. It was also along a major 8 lane highway and was already loud at 12:30 at night. I can't imagine it during rush hour. So that one's a no-go too. We will be spending a lot of time at home so it needs to be somewhere where you can hear yourself think...
And now I am heading to bed. Goodnight everyone!
First 2 from the Nov kit!
