Understanding Becky From A Father's Perspective.
Sunday, August 12, 2012
Before I even begin to start writing I would like to say that our daughter Becky has always been the center of our lives. My thoughts are not simple. I have within my mind ,endless views, and speculations on many diversified matters concerning Becky. I wrote a four hundred page manuscript on my thoughts in regard to my immediate family, and never touched the surface of all that I could have written about that involves Becky. There have been endless concerns in our lives, and in my mother, and father's lives which has much to do with Becky .
I do not know how to say this, but our lives involve a large degree of psychology that many people are probably not entirely aware of , that we are.
Understanding Becky is my desire. Understanding our daughter Becky is Joann's desire too . Our desires are to make our daughter's life comfortable, interesting, and as pleasantly happy as possible. As her parents, these are our intentions among many more intentions. This might sound very remedial, but disabilities can become more enhanced when people that need to help them, or care for them do not help them in the right manner.
There are many facts about Becky. One mosquito bite can cause her to have a high fever. In all our cars we have ever had we kept umbrellas in them at all times because if Becky gets wet , then that can cause fevers if she remains wet for very long. We guard her from insect bites, spiders, or bees because she has never been stung by a bee in her life, and never has been bitten by a spider to our knowledge. Becky seems to have a body temperature of a degree, or two higher than normal people at all times according to doctors. Certain movements made around Becky from ourselves , or others can cause her muscles to quickly tighten up, or become ridged.
Becky is not usually patient. When she wants something done, she expects it to be done right away. Maybe this is because she does not want to be ignored, and I can understand how she feels . However it can be difficult for us to do things right away in some cases . When Becky wants to go to bed, she is ready for bed immediately.
I usually make it a habit that when I want something to drink, I check to see if Becky would like something as well. The human body depends upon liquids, and to be hydrated so Becky is no different. I would like Becky to eat more. It is simply a matter of asking her if she is hungry.
I mentioned to the people that will repair mom's house that the house needs wider door openings. This would enable us to move Becky's wheelchairs more easily in the bedrooms so that we can take her out of her chairs more easily.
Becky looks forward to going places. I need to build another small business, a successful one that will help bring in more income because the right small business may still be possible in America.
What I would like to do is to build a small little shop. I would like it to have refrigeration, and what is necessary to pass board of health standards, and then I would like to create fudge. Maybe some hot dogs with good home made chili. I bet there would be money to be made. I use to sell a lot of fudge that I made years ago in our gift shop. It is a good money making endeavor if you can keep prices reasonable.
Well it looks like Becky, and Joann have come into the kitchen from the bedroom. I guess I will make coffee, maybe scramble them some eggs, and toast some bread.
God Bless Everyone.
