Today we made the 2.5 hour drive to Dallas to see the neurologist. Of course, once Dakin realized where we were, the freakout session started. Ah well. But he fortunately eventually calmed down and charmed the PA, who seemed to be surprised on how well he is doing. It was nice to hear it from her. :)
It was a very short appointment, though, and since it was so short we decided on a whim to visit the BODIES exhibit in downtown Dallas. I have been wanting to go for a while, and it was unbelievable. Just to see the beautiful, majestic bodies with their muscles and nerves and bones and everything else...wow. As you can probably guess, Dakin wasn't horribly interested, but he didn't fuss. He did find a girlfriend though, near the skull with the veins highlighted.
After we checked out a restaurant, and Dakin checked out everyone around him. On the way home he fell asleep for about 10 minutes and then was up and ready to go again. He was in such a good mood the entire drive, which is a huge blessing, since he can get miserable on it.
So just a review of today. It was a perfect day...and completely unplanned. We have gotten to a point with Dakin that we can really take him out a lot more than we used to, and in a more spontaneous manner. It is so nice to just live like a normal person sometimes.
And then tonight...I was singing 'Poker Face' and Dakin decided he was going to as well. I will get video and post it--it's hilarious!
