Ice cream - excellent medicine.

One of the very first sign language signs that Abbe learnt was ‘ice cream’. He loves ice cream. And since the staff here wants him to get plenty of fluids, he is allowed to eat his beloved ice cream as much and as often as he wants.

Plus, that’s one of the few moments when a nurse can show up in the doorway without Abbe going "Ay-oo" (goodbye) as soon as he sees her or him. They’re not that popular, the nurses.

Unless you are given ice cream, that is.
