Zadie learned all sorts of stuff in 2012. She learned to walk and sign and she even gained back her voice! It's not 100%, but she can get very LOUD when she wants to express herself. She can also say mama and baba meaningfully. She got her palate repaired back in May, and can drink like a champion.
By 2014, I would love it if Zadie could lose her trach and her Gtube. I won't get my hopes up or put too much pressure on anyone, but it would be great. For now, she is happy and healthy and that's all we can ask for.
