Discharge plan: individual and family therapy, monitor medications. difficult child didn't want to come home, husband said, "I tried to talk to him but he's not being nice to me and I was starting to get mad. Nothing's going to change." He's going to school tomorrow. There was another kid from his school in the psychiatric hospital with him. Wonder if difficult child's worried about walking into that school now that everyone knows he stole a nintendo DS from one of them. We had to do a sweep before he got home to make sure that all our valuables and sharp objects were secured. What a drag. psychiatrist tomorrow, therapist the day after, then we'll see what has to be done. I already know, call DCF, call the judge. DCF will think he's not bad enough for them to pay to put him in residential. The judge will say: we aren't a babysitting service (I heard him say that abt a 16 year old girl who had no place to go pre trial. Her family refused her and several facilities refused to have her back too. They finally found a place 7 hours away. He was diagnosis'd with "MDD severe" along with ODD and b/pd. What's MDD? It cost $700 for a 7-day stay. We read the hospital notes: it sounds like his stay wasn't as peaceful as the therapist on Saturday made out. "Guarded. "I'm fine" minimizing outbursts, seems unable to understand consequences, aggressive @ home, compulsive lying, stealing, easily agitated and angered, poor inpulse control, SI/HI, alert, anxious mood/affect, limited insight/judgment/impulse control, irritable at times, easily agitated, sleeping well, hyperventilate at times. " Hyperventilate at times? Irritable? Easily agitated and angered? Those are things we haven't seen. Sigh... We are back where we started and $700 poorer.
