Chapter 10: Saving Three Syllables
(by NativeRose, added on 27 May 2004 01:30 AM)

Summer approached Nequenta uncertainly.
"Tamara, how are we supposed to get her to the bathroom?" In response, Anela handed her a box of diapers.
"Let's wheel her in there." She indicated a room with sufficient changing facilities."
I wonder what she's thinking. Summer thought as she helped Anela change Nequenta. She didn't have to wait long to find out.
Using a mouthstick and special computer software, Nequenta shared this story:

When I was fifteen months old, I was really sick. I coughed all the time, and I couldn't breathe. Then something else happened. It was called meningitis. My mom told me that's where the things around my brain, called meninges, got inflamed. I'm not really sure what that means, but they say I almost died. My mom said she prayed to Jehovah constantly for my health and safety. When the doctors told her that I wouldn't be able to walk, she was just thankful that I was alive. So when I pray, I thank God that I'm alive, and that my mom loves me for who I am.
