Calla was intrigued by the mechanical features of her cousin's power wheelchair. He was showing her how he could lean back and be in a standing mode. She seemed a bit concerned about Cameron and tried to stop the mechanism a couple of times. This really made Cam laugh! We headed back that evening after dinner and dessert.
Sunday morning, we were on the road again headed south to Stevensville. We had planned to meet up with Auntie Karen and her sister, Sue. Cracker Barrel was our chosen destination and each of us ordered some type of breakfast. Before we traveled back to the highway, Cam received a new cool chair float from Karen which he cannot wait to use this summer.
Friday afternoon, Cameron was scheduled to work with the Grand Valley State University PT graduate students. It is a job he takes seriously and he is paid for his time. Typically, there are 4 students assigned to work with Cam. Three of them were asking him questions while the other student was interviewing Jane about her son's birth, milestones and schooling. Jane was responding very quietly so as not to disrupt the team and their efforts. One of the questions that was asked was regarding Cam's hearing and if there was any concerns.
Jane (in a low whisper): "Any concerns? Yes. Cam's hearing is too good. He hears everything, especially when he's not supposed to."
"I heard that, Mom!"
