Its been 2+ years since Audrey has been able to smell anything. In fact, two weeks ago, she didn't even know how to smell. Today she threw away her breakfast (without eating it of course) and then told me, "Ew! The trash stinks!". What/!!? Ok so yes I need to take out the trash, but SHE SMELLED IT!??
I immediately ran to the kitchen and started pulling things out of the cupboard and fridge and asking her to smell it. Vanilla Extract- she said it smells spicy. Cumin - she just made a gross face. Jam - said it smelled like strawberries (I made her close her eyes to see if she could smell it without seeing it hahaha). Lavender Essential Oil - she didn't like it, probably because it is so strong. Haha. this could be fun. I could make a whole smelling activity out of this.
We still have 4 more weeks to go for "full recovery" and results but so far I like what I see. The scabs in her throat have fallen off and it looks like she has two gaping holes. Its gross...but she feels better I think.
