A Mixed Bag

  • The girls enjoyed planting wave petunias in GB’s garden. Hope asked for a garden of her own.
  • GB’s  anxiety level is at an all time high. I started Tapping with her last week and now she wants it every night. She says she sleeps better.
  • Hope hasn’t bitten me in two whole days. Her psychiatrist said I had to go for a tetanus booster and told me  that the prognosis for Hope was pretty grim.
  • I called the waiver worker yesterday morning and she spent an hour and a half telling Hope that physical attacks had to stop. The worker is meeting with the school tomorrow, as it is required by one of her forms.
  • We are driving to Raleigh, North Carolina, for my niece’s graduation tonight.
  • GB’s teacher said she has been resistant for the last couple of weeks. I made an appointment for next week so that GB, the teacher, and I can meet. I am not sure exactly what “resistant” means.
  • Hope is up to 15 mg daily of Abilify. That is a lot for a 60# six year old.
  • I have to call my doctor this morning to get an appointment for my tetanus booster and to make sure I have enough Valium to knock me out for the car ride. The Dad did not want to put Hope in respite while we were in North Carolina.
