Once there was a little girl named Sally. She lived on a farm with her mom and dad and big brother, Jack, in a small country town.
Sally had been born with a rare medical condition that prevented her from walking, so she got around in a wheelchair. A small machine called a ventilator helped her breathe, and it went with her wherever she went. It was connected by a tube to her trach, an opening in her throat. She loved watching the antics of the chickens and pigs and sheep and barn cats. She would often exclaim, "I like this game."
In the mornings when her big brother ate breakfast before going to school, Sally was fed with a feeding tube that delivered her food right to her stomach. She wondered what it meant when Jack said something tasted good.
While her brother was at school, Sally stayed at home for her lessons. A nice lady named Tanya visited three days a week to help her get stronger and help her with her balance. Tanya did something called physical therapy with Sally.
One of Sally's favorite activities was balancing on a huge rubber ball that Tanya brought with her. Tanya and Mom would lift her out of her wheel chair and place her right on the ball. Tanya held onto Sally while she leaned forward and backward and sideways. The ball just went along. Sally would say, "I like this game."
As much as Sally enjoyed working with Tanya, she wished she could go to school like the other children. Sometimes she felt lonely. Although she loved the farm animals, she longed for a special friend.
