Greta’s Alphabet by mommy Jess



I realize for the sake of readability I should probably elaborate on each of these. Instead, I’ve decided to tell you that this “game” started late at night when I couldn’t sleep. I read an article suggesting insomniacs pick a subject and silently run through the alphabet trying to quickly choose a word to match each letter as fast as they could in order to engage their brain in a repetitive exercise that was stimulating enough to keep them engaged but not complicated enough to keep them awake. Major fail on my part in subject choice. But non-the-less, here is Greta’s alphabet.

A is for Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR)
B is for Botox Therapy
C is for Cerebral Palsy
D is for DAFO # 3 Leg Braces
E is for Electroencephalogram (EEG)
F is for First Steps
G is for Gait
H is for Hemplegic
I is for Infarction
J is for January the month you were diagnosed
K is for Karyotype
L is for Left-Sided Hearing Loss
M is Myclonic Infant Epilepsy
N is for Neurologist
O is for Occupational Therapist
P is for Physical Therapist
Q is for Quadriceps Stretch
R is for Rehabilitation
S is for Stroke
T is for Torticollis
U is for Ultrasound
V is for Vital Body Function
W is for Wait and See
X is for Abdominal and Facial X-rays
Y is for "Your Child" has...
Z is for Zygote which you once were
