This column reminded me of how excited I was to have sleepovers when I was a kid. There’s nothing like having a friend over, and feeling just like everyone else. I’m glad Michael told this story, and I like how he provides regular updates about Ella’s adventures and social experiences.
Do you have any takeaways from this column? Do you have any questions?
Very cool. I didn’t really do sleepovers, because obviously they’d have to be at my house, and I didn’t want my friends seeing all my machines and what not that I use during the night. This column didn’t really cover any of that. Maybe Ella doesn’t need much in that regard?
I get that it can be awkward, but it’s just one of those things you deal with. My friends help me with a lot of other things, and they know my needs. It doesn’t really bother me if they see me with my BiPAP and other equipment.
