Today was a special day. We met our original school OT Brittany, and our current OT Cari, at the candy store for our last official day before graduation.
Brittany began working with Corey when we moved home in June of 2011. She left us last year because she was expecting her own little girl.
It was very special to close Corey’s school year with these two amazing ladies. It’s true they both worked with Corey but they have taught me invaluable strategies, techniques and introduced me to tools that have helped us supplement their lessons and goals for her. It has been an honor, blessing and incredible gift to work with them for the last 3 years.
As many of know, Corey used to work at the Candy Store. We periodically stop in to say hello to Sue and the candy girls. We think it’s a riot that Sue still has Corey’s name on the schedule waiting for her to come back to her job. Well, that day is getting closer and closer.
Today, instead of using the wheelchair, Corey walked across the parking lot, up the ramp and into the store (check out the gallery). Molly, Maggie and Ashley were shocked to see her walk in! Unfortunately, Sue was at the Delaware store and missed it. This was the first time Corey walked into the candy store since October 1, 2010, the night before the accident. I can’t wait for the day she can walk in, put on an apron and start dipping pretzels again…on her own…xoxo
PS – she ordered Birthday Cake ice cream with rainbow sprinkles to celebrate her last OT day!
