Halley's Story (Before Pro-Efa til now)

October 17, 2001
Today I started the Pro-Efa capsules. I opened the bottle, and WOW, they were huge. I decided to mix them in some juice, and when I punctured the capsule and squeezed it, it shot all over the kitchen. Ok, second capsule, I mixed with some juice, and got in the glass this time. The oil from the capsule just sat on top of the juice, I knew there was no way Halley would drink this. So I opened up the fridge, and started looking, I found some cups of yogurt that she likes, and mixed the capsule in there. At the time I was on the phone with my mom, who told me I must taste it. I was hesitant, but I tried it, it was disgusting! I had no idea how Halley was going to eat this!! I gagged a few times, while my mother laughed at me. (I had a bad expereince with cod liver oil, and it just took me back.)
When Halley got home, I gave her the yogurt, to my surprise, she ate the whole cup of yogurt, only stopping for a second, to think about the texture. (It leaves an oily taste in your mouth.) We were on our way!
If you decide to try these, mix them with whatever you can, or however you think will work for your child.

This weekly log page includes entries in chronological order. I will write new entries on this page as the week goes on and then add a new page for each new week (remembering to update my "most recent posting" link on the home page whenever I do, of course).

I might not include an entry for every day - it depends on what occurs to Halley!

Wednesday, October 17, 2001

Today is the beginning, a new beginning for us. Halley's speech progress has been slow, and I have decided to try the Pro-Efa capsules, and see how Halley's speech, behavior and focus may change as a result of this. (To learn more about Pro-Efa capsules, see the link below to The CHERAB Foundation.)
As of today, her vocabulary is at about 77 words. Alot of the words are scrambled, and the pronunciation is poor. She tries very hard, and though she "talks" all the time, we are still striving to increase her speech skills.

Thursday, October 18, 2001

Today started out pretty well. When I got her out of bed this morning, I bumped her with my elbow. I told her I was sorry, I did not mean to bump her with my elbow. She looked at me and smiled, and then said,"my elbow", it sounded like "my ellow", though it was a set of new words. I thought to myself, "Hmmm, is this a coincidence?", and continued about our morning. Before I took her to school, she added some more words to her vocabulary, here they are:
Daffy (Dappy) / Eddie / Polly (pobby) / baby milk (soft a in baby and combined the two words together perfectly) / downstairs (dow-der) / and the words OH NO!, came out as good as if I said them myself.
I am so excited to see what she will say when I picked her up this afternoon!
Afternoon: Wow! I picked her up and she just started talking, using 3 & 4 words & syllables, something she has never done before. I thought to myself...is this real, could it be working so fast? Not sure, I am not going to question it either. She said these words/phrases which were all new to her vocabulary:
scissors (idors) / glue (boo) / bandaid / cup / bills / stragiht (sate) / Abby / Fruit Loops (foo oos) / Flower (owbee) / hi puppy / me two bandaid / mommy two bandaid / help me mama / wanna see / I eat no /
She also came home and wanted to show me the new signs she learned at school, now this was odd, because she never wants to do her signs, nor does she just up and show me. She said all four of these with the sign and the speech. (The letter of the week is P) pocket / popcorn / peach / paper.
When I picked her up from school her teacher brought her to the car, and told me I was never going to believe this, but Halley stood up in front of the whole class and taught them her signs, she did the signs and spoke at the same time!!
I wondered, but this is only the beginning, and with Halley, I know she does have good days and bad days. On days where she is sick or tired, she hardly attempts to talk.
**Now note this....At 6:30 pm last night I gave her cold medicine that would help her sleep, I do not know if this would effect her supplements or not, but I am doing this study on my own, and recording all details. Please check with your pediatrician before starting any supplements.

Saturday/Sunday, October 20-21, 2001

Monday, October 22, 2001

After doing some more reading this weekend, I decided to increase her from 1 pill a day, to 1 pill twice a day. I have noticed that she is using words she has never before, and making 2-3 words sentences that seem to be more clear. I am not sure if this is from the Pro-Efa, or just progress. Today, I picked her up from pre-k, and saw her speech therapist, (the one she has had since she was 2), and she asked me,"What have you done with Halley?" You see for the past two years everytime she would come for speech, Halley would give her attitude, and refuse to cooperate. Since last week, she goes with her, and does everything she is asked of in therapy. This is no doubt a change. I have not informed her of the Pro-Efa, I wanted to see if she noticed a change without me telling her. It just makes me so happy.

Tuesday, October 23, 2001

Things seem to be progressing just a little faster, her words are becoming more clear, and most everything she says come in a sentence of 2-3 words.
Yesterday I forgot to mention this, this is the first time in her life she has ever done this. She is very active, and can go until wee hours of the night/morning, with no nap. Yesterday, she crawled up on the couch and just fell asleep. I was in the room with her at the time. The tv was on, she just passed out. Now at one point she rolled off the couch, got back up, and fell right back asleep. This is no doubt new bahavior for her.

Wednesday, October 24, 2001

It is so hard to say, I want to be realistic, yet I want this to happen for her. I am trying to be objective as possible. Today she had speech therapy again, and things went great.
I was on the phone, and Halley sat down on the couch beside me, and I looked over at her and she was asleep. No doubt in my mind, it has to be the Pro-Efa, calming her down a bit. She has never just fell asleep, let alone when I was 6 inches away from her on the phone. My mom heard her talk and says that her voice sounds clearer.

Week Two - On Pro-Efa

Thursday, October 25, 2001

Today, no new changes, seems to be holding at a steady pace. Halley can repeat words on command, though the pronunciation may not be quite right, she does not appear frustrated.

Friday, October 26, 2001

I like to call Friday, "Friday Melt Down Day". For good reason, every Friday, all behavior goes out the door. I am not sure if it is just from exhaustion from being in school all week, or what. Today held its name just fine. She was very uncooperative, in fact we went to Blockbuster Friday evening, and she wanted candy, I told her no, and right in the middle of the store (on the way out..I saw what was coming) she screamed at the top of her lungs, NOOOOOOO!!) It sounded as if someone was hurting her. She very seldom will do this in public, let alone home. She does have meltdowns occasionally, and this was just ugly. She did not seem to have difficulty with speech, just with behavior today. It was embarrasing, and I see children do this, and I do not judge other parents, because, sometimes your kids are just going to do this, my husband on the other hand, was just beyond himself. He sees children do this, and blames the parents for not controlling their children, but hey, men do not always "get it" anyways.

Saturday/Sunday, October 27-28, 2001

Saturday-
Today, everything seemed to be fine. Halley is learning her signs and using them more than she ever has. I will be putting a list together of all of her current words and sentences, because I believe there are way more than before I started the Pro-Efa. Tonight, we went to eat Mexican, just like every Saturday night, Halley was so excited. We get there, and she always get a "baby quesidilla", but tonight she was complaining of a tummy ache, and would not eat, which is odd for Halley, she eats very well. During dinner, we went to the bathroom 3 times, once she needed to go, then she thought she had to poop, then she thought she was going to throw up, she did not, but she was just feeling bad. She had a nap earlier in the day. On the way home, her head just kept nodding, she could not keep her eyes open, just then, 5 minutes before we got home, she started complaining her tummy hurt, I told her we would be home in a minute, and just just whined, "no". So we are now 2 minutes from home, and here it comes...projectile...(Ok, I will spare the details..some of them anyways) She got sick 5 times in the car on the way home..in Daddy's truck...(snickering to myself). She seemed to feel really bad.

Sunday-
She is not feeling herself today, as to be expected. She is on the lathargic side. She ate breakfast, but just seems to be laying around today. She is talking well, and that is good.
I can't get her to eat anything, so needless to say she will not be getting the Pro-Efa today, I sure hope that this does not interfere with her progress.

Monday, October 29, 2001

Halley told me last night, she did not want to go to school today, and I decided to play it by ear. I woke up this morning and she said her tummy still hurt, so I kept her home. She is feeling better, but still has diarhea(sp..do not have to spell that word too much), I gave her some yogurt, with the Pro-Efa in it, and she would only eat two bites. She is still not hungry, and she keeps telling me "yucky", for everything. If she is not better, we will be taking a trip to the doctor tomorrow. I do not want to stop the Pro-Efa, but I can't get anything down her. Pepto Bismol was hard enough. She has been saying quite a bit today, a little chatter box. She has been saying "Minnie" all day, (Sounds like Bibbie)(my mom's name). I started counting and as of right now..3pm, I counted 110 words, and I am sure there are a few more, which is 45 more words than two weeks ago. The words are much clearer. My mom said that she used to talk almost like a deaf child, almost mumbles and now she said she sounds like a little girl.

Tuesday, October 30, 2001

Today, Halley was very grumpy. Actually just defiant. She did not want to get dressed, brush her hair, nothing. I know she has not felt good, but this morning, she said she felt fine. She woke up at 6 am, and wanted to go to school. Maybe it was just that she still did not feel herself. She came home from school a little better. Seemed to be a little happier, I asked her what was wrong, and she told me nothing. YES, she told me "NOTHING". She did miss one day of the Pro-Efa, and I hope this does not effect anything. Tomorrow is Halloween, and we are going trick or treating, she had been practicing saying, "Trick or Treat." It sounds like treetree, but that is ok. She is going to dress up like Jasmine from Aladdin. She is going to be in a parade tomorrow, so she is really excited. Big Day!!

Wednesday, October 31, 2001

Today, Halley woke up in a great mood, she was excited about the whole day. She got to wear her costume to school. When I picked her up she told me she had fun at the parade. I told her we would be going trick or treating soon. She said, "NAY!!".
We went trick or treating with some friends and their children. She lagged behind, but tried to keep up, the other kids were older than her. We went to my neighbor's house first and she said, "TRICK OR TREAT!", and I told her how well she did, and that she had the whole idea of this trick or treating thing down, she agreed. We came across a few houses where the people tried to make her say trick or treat, she just stared at them and shook her head no. It is frustrating, because the general populations "assumes" that she can talk, and one lady just stood there and waited, and waited, but eventually gave her candy. I did not say anything, because I did not want to make Halley feel uncomfortable. She was fine doing it her way. She had a great time. It is hard to sit there and watch that, but this was Halley's night, and I know that most people are not educated about apraxia. Halley has a great self esteem, and I want to keep it that way.

Thursday, November 1, 2001

Halley went to her "Minnie's" house today after school. (Minnie is her grandmother, my mom) When I picked her up, she looked at me and said, "Bibbie?", and I said, "yes, you are going to Minnie's house". She was there until about 10 pm, and she was still going when I picked her up. My mom was exhausted. Halley was good, but she does require alot. You have to look at her to know what she says, and she is very physical, meaning, everything she does, takes physical action to make up for the verbal. When we picked her up she said,"Wickle", and I looked and she was showing me a whistle. Another new word for her. She finally got to bed about 11:30, and went to sleep pretty quickly. She will be tired in the morning. I hope tomorrow is not "meltdown day".

Friday, November 2, 2001

SEE ESSAY PAGE......CALLED "I HAD A BAD DAY", this will explain the whole day, it is not worth repeating!

Saturday/Sunday November 3-4, 2001

I have to say Saturday, the behavior issues were not any better than Friday. I lost it today, and cried. I told me husband, I just could not do it anymore, the held me and assured me I could, that I did not have a choice. He sat down with Halley and told her that Mommy and Daddy are in charge and that she has to listen to the rules. He told her not to show her butt anymore. (Now let's hope she understood that last sentence, 4 year olds can take things quite literally!) After the conversation with her dad, things seem to be better.
Sunday- What a huge improvement! She had a better attitude today, a couple of times she tried to go there, but stopped herself. She is so much fun to be around when she isn't nasty like that. I have decided to limit the sugar, she binged for 2 days on Halloween candy, and this could have contributed to the behavior issues. The talk with Daddy helped alot. Tonight when it was time to read her a story before bedtime, I read her 4 quick little Winnie the Pooh books, hugged and kissed her, a few minutes later when I was walking past her room, I saw that she was reading outloud, so I asked her if she would read to me, I sat down with her, she pointed at the pictures and grunted. I told her to read the words like Mommy does, and I told her I would help her. We then went through every single word in the book, and she repeated every word after me, she read two whole books to me!! It was great, I was so proud of her. We will do that every night, It is so good for her. She wants to read, and we are going to start learning.

Monday, November 5, 2001

Everything seems to be going fine, the talk with Daddy, seemed to help the behavior issues. The verbal expressions are still going great. She read with me two stories tonight, and seems to like it.

Tuesday, November 6, 2001

Today, when she got home, she had huge splinter in her thumb. The teachers said they tried all day to get it out but could not. I held her down, and she just went into a rage. She was kicking and screaming, she was so mad at me. I got the splinter out, and all is well.
Tonight we watched "The Road to El Dorado", and she talked the entire time. She said Spain, and gold, and reapeated alot of the words that the characters said. During the movie, they two guys were in a rowboat, about to get knocked over by a larger ship, said,"Holy Ship", and she repeated that, and I was unsure what her exact words were, it was kindof funny, but then again....

Thursday, November 7, 2001

Today, Halley did not go to school, My mom and I took her to see Toy Story 2 on Ice. She was fascinated by the whole day! We rode "MARTA" downtown, and watched the show. She was quiet during most of the show. She now does this imitation of Buzz and him skating.
Before we left this morning, we had a little "episode", she did not want to get dressed, had a real hard time this morning. I am not sure why, if maybe because it was a change in routine, or what. It only lasted an appropriate 15 minutes.
Quiet most of the day, not real chatty, though this is how she normally acts in busy, public places.

Starting on Monday, November 12, instead of describing our day, I will be adding a list of new words she says, and mentioning frustrations she may have. I will be listing anything out of the ordinary with her.

This all started on October 17, 2001. We are now approaching the one month mark. I have seen great improvements in the speech area, everyday there are more and more new words. Repeating words are not a problem for Halley. She now wants to sign, and does not give her regular speech therapist a hard time. Every week when I see her SLP, she gives me a thumbs up, we were lucky to see that once every six months before. The Pro-Efa has made all the difference in the world. To me, it has been the miracle I have been waiting for.

Friday, Novemeber 9, 2001

No Friday meltdown! What else can I say, we had a good afternoon. By 6 pm, she started to get a little grumpy, I fed her, gave her a bath, and put her to bed by 6:45 pm. I decided she needs to go to bed early on Fridays since they are so hard for her, this seemed to work.

Saturday/Sunday November 10-11, 2001

Saturday and Sunday were great. No behavior issues, she seems to have a better control of herself.
Her speech is great! She adds new words everyday, she is repeating everything I say, now I know she can repeat me. Sunday, she was very chatty. We actually told her to take a breath! She was speaking in full sentences, not 3 word sentences, but full sentences, and though only a few words could be understood, she seems to be progressing at a steady level.

Monday, November 12, 2001

I remembered this morning that Halley did not get her Pro-Efa yesterday. Today, her words were very limited. She spoke on the phone with my sister, and she was grunting, and having a very hard time talking to her. She seemed tired, I am not sure if not taking it yesterday had any effect, but she had a hard time communicating today.
When I picked her up from school, and asked her how her day went, she just folded her arms, gave me a dirty look and said, "uh-uh". I told her if she did not feel like telling me about her day, that was fine, I understood. I asked her if she felt like she was having a hard time with speech today, and she said, nay. I told her it was ok, we all have bad days and not to worry about it.

Tuesday, November 13, 2001

The words were better today than yesterday, but I have to say no new words that I noticed. She sang the ABC song with me this morning, had the tune down, but just made up the words, or letters I should say. I put her to bed at 8:10, and by 8:15 she was out. I told my hubby, he kindof looked shocked, and then asked if she was ok. We both kindof laughed, and looked at each other. She must have been exhausted!

Wednesday, November 14, 2001

She woke up in a great mood. Chatty as can be. Most I could not understand, but she hardly took a breath. She looked at the calender, and saw days that were marked where there was no school, and said,"Halley no school." Then I yawned and stretched, and she said,"Mommy sleepy?" (This she said in a question form, changing the tone, some children with apraxia have low or no tone.) Then she was playing on the phone, and kept saying,"Hello". (New word never said before)

Thursday, November 15, 2001

Here is the new word she said today, ladder, sounded like addie.
Tonight she fell asleep in about 15 minutes. The temper tantrums have all but ceased. If I ask her to do something, she will say, "nay momma" and it is done.
Her speech therapist left a message on my machine today, and she told me that Halley has been doing so well!

Friday, November 16, 2001

What a great Friday!
Here are the words that Halley said today:
(new) Coffee - doppee
(better) Pacey - Payee
(better) Jax - Daa
(new) speak - bee
(new) cereal - digo
This morning when we woke up, she pointed at the cabinet where I keep the cereal, I told her to hold on I wanted to get my coffee started first, and this is what she said,"Ohh coffee yucky, ooh poopoo coffee". It sounded more like this, "ooh doppee yucky, ooh poopoo doppee". It was so funny, this was her first attempt at a joke verbally, outloud. We both just laughed.
Then tonight she was trying to make the dogs (all 4 of them), speak for treats. She said each one of their names, followed by speak, this is what it sounded like:
Payee bee (Pacey speak)
Daa bee (Jax speak)
Ahdy bee (Roxie speak)
Jill bee (Jill speak)

This is now the 4th night in a row, that she has fallen asleep in under 15 minutes. Apparently, the Pro-Efa is now calming her down some. She is now able to fall asleep fast, this is an all time first, it is extremely rare for it to ever be under at least 1 hour before she falls asleep.

Saturday/Sunday, November 17-18, 2001

Saturday - She has just been an angel! No temper tantrums, in fact she has been on her best behavior, I made sure to tell what a good girl she has been, and how helpful she has been. She has done everything asked of her, cleaning her room, picking up toys, whatever I have asked. After I ask her to do something, I get a real sweet, "Nay Mama" in return.
Words:
She actually sang for the first time, real words:
**No doubt in my mind (I'm a believer / From Shrek)
She read a book with me last night, and on command repeated every single word.

Monday, November 19, 2001

I picked up Halley from school, and her teacher was all excited about something, and could hardly get it out. First thing she said, was during speech therapy, Halley said,"I have to get my jacket", CLEAR AS A BELL! Both the teacher and ST, stopped and looked at each other, and were in shock! Then she said that earlier in the day, she said,"I want to get my blocks",clear as a bell. I spoke with her speech therapist on the phone today, and she told me how great Halley did today, and that she smiled at her, went right with her, and repeated everything she was told to. She said, she wasn't getting her hopes up though. Meaning that Halley must be having a good day, and she would not expect it the next time, but since she has started Pro-Efa, she has not given her hardly any problems whatsoever, and everytime I pick her up, she says that Halley was great. So whatever!!
Other words she said today:
Mini movie
cool
(told the dogs to speak again by name, so this was not a random "apraxia" thing)
I will be making another list of all the words she can say, and says on a daily basis, to post to the home site page by the end of this week, I am looking forward to how many are going to be on there!

Tuesday, November 20, 2001

Today, I had a parent/teacher conference with her teacher. She told me Halley was doing so well, and I mentioned to her my concerns about Halley and her fine motor skills, such as coloring and writing her letters. She assured me that she was right with the other children in her class, and has come a long way since the beginning. She showed me where Halley tried to write her name, there were all H's on the page. She cut, colored, and pasted a circle on the page. Halley drew a picture of her house, it was an odd shape circle with dots in the middle. She told me how impressed with Halley's puzzle skill she was.
I also ate lunch with Halley today, she seemed to play well with the other kids. It was funny, at one time after lunch, I sat down in a small chair, and all of a sudden I look up and am surrounded by about 6-4 year olds. One was curling my hair, one was brushing my hair, two of them were feeding me plates of play food, and two of them were talking to me. I was bombarded by these children. Halley got a little jealous, until I got her to participate with the other children.
In speech today, once again, I got a good report!

Wednesday, November 21, 2001

Halley did not have school today. Her speech therapist came to out house, they went to her room, and at first she whined, but that stopped after a minute or two, and when they were done, her ST told me how well she did. We talked for a minute and she told me how the words just seemed clearer, and that she is noticing how Halley is saying more structured sentences.

Thursday, November 22, 2001

Today for Thanksgiving Dinner, we went to Grandma's house. Instead of saying her regular nay and no, she started saying, "Nay Nay" and "No No". Not sure where this is coming from. This is the only difference I noticed today.

Friday, November 23, 2001

We had a Thanksgiving Dinner at our house today, with my family. My sis was in from out of town, and she brought my neices who are 13 and almost 3.
Halley and Zoe (almost 3), played really well together. Zoe seemed to understand everything that Halley said. Zoe was hard to understand also. They both seem to be at the same level of speech. It was like they both had their own language thing going on.

Saturday/Sunday November 24-25, 2001

Today, I babysat Zoe for awhile, she slept most of the time, while her parents were gone. When she woke up she wanted some cereal, so of course Halley wanted some too. I sat them both down at the table with a bowl of Cheerios. They sat across the table from each other. They both were yelling a word at each other, and then laughing. They both giggled non-stop. They kept looking at each other under the table, saying some word, and then laughing.
After the relatives left, Halley and I were in the kitchen, and Halley saw her bottle of Pro-Efa, and touched it and then said, "I don't like it", clear as a bell.

Monday, November 26, 2001

Today, I was thinking about Halley's progress in the past week, and it seems as if she has planed out a bit. I am noticing the same words, and very few additional words. Maybe it is just me, because I see her everyday. her speech therapist told me she did well, but she complained that she did not feel good, and that her tummy hurt. She told me that she completely understood her. So maybe it is just me.

Tuesday, November 27, 2001

I forgot to mention, yesterday, Halley and I were watching the Grinch (movie), and during the part where the girl sings, Halley started singing after her, if she would say Christmas, then Halley would sing Christmas. It was such a sweet soung to hear her sing!
Then tonight, I thought she was in her room, and she was actually in the hallway, my hubby and I were watching Buffy (I know, I know, great tv eh?) and I said, Oh look Buffy is going to kick her ass, then out of nowhere, Halley appears, and kindof giggled, then said, "Ass?", then covered her mouth, then looked at me giggled again, and said it one more time. With apraxia, (I hope I am not alone on this), if she says a word I am thrilled, though ass is not a word I would like to hear her say, and I told her that, I was happy to hear it.
She also told me: Baby Lizard
My Fish Bites

Wednesday, November 28, 2001

I did a count of Halley's words, and she is at 154!! She has gained almost 100 words since October 17th!!

There are 65 words listed here, there may be a few more she can say, and the majority of the time, she can put two of these together, however, if she tries to put more than 2 together at a time, everything becomes scrambled.





Thursday, November 29, 2001

I added a few words this morning, at the total count of words are now at 173, some were existing words, and a few new ones this morning. I have to keep my notebook with me at all times, the words are new all the time!
Here are the new words this morning: salami, tomorrow, Julie, and finger.

Friday, November 30, 2001

I picked up Halley from school today, and told her that Grandma was at our house, she sighed real big, and then said, "Spank me, spank me, spank me" (as she spanked herself on the rear). Grandma had threatened her with a belt awhile back, and needless to say, Grandma (not my mom) and I had a little chat. I told Halley that Grandma would not be spanking her, and if she ever even tries to, to tell mommy, she said nay. This is a long story, but I am highly against spanking with a belt or any object, and have made it perfectly clear to her that I do not allow this with my child.
However, I was surprised that Halley said this.

Saturday/Sunday December 1-2, 2001

I was cleaning today, and saw one of my dogs sitting on the floor all cute, and said to Roxie, You are so cute, and just then Halley replied, "Me Mama?" I smiled at her and said yes, Halley you are cute, she said, "Nay".

Today, Halley was walking one of our dogs-Jax with some Christmas ribbon (yeah-you would have had to seen it), and she kept saying,"come on boobie", I looked at her asked her what she was calling him, and she said boobie. I said Boobie? She said Nay, I said Halley, Jax is not a boobie, and she laughed and said nay. I was laughing to myself, and left it at that.
Then later we were putting up Christmas lights outside, and asked her to come out of the garage, and as loud as she could (with the neighbors outside ofcourse) she said, "bite me", I just replied,"That better have not been what I think it was." She laughed. Hmmmmm......Are you thinking what I am thinking?
