More memories flooded Patients mind. She remembered when her mommy and daddy gave her a scooter on her fifth birthday. That day she got to blow out 5 birthday candles and then eat strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting along with her baby sister. They both got a little messy, but that was okay. They laughed at each other as they noticed the frosting all over each other’s faces!
After finishing her cake, Patient tried out her new scooter on the driveway. Mommy took pictures while daddy and sister clapped at her new talent. It was a good day to remember.
As Patient thought of all the good times she had had, she felt happy. Patient was ready for more good times with family and friends.
Then Patient heard mommy calling her to dinner and decided that she had had a grand adventure in recalling the memories of what she had already done.
Patient climbed into the bathtub that evening and was happy to realize that she had a mommy, daddy and sister who loved her.
