difficult child came home from psychiatric hospital Friday and is doing very, very well. She hasn't this kind of stability in years. She has shared a lot of insight, and a couple very profound statements, and (gasp) empathy. Even her stutter has markedly improved. The medications play a huge role (I've updated my profile to show her medications), but I think, too, is that she has never before had to endure an uncomfortable situation for very long. She did, and she survived it. Without me. One of the profound statements: "Mom, all you are is a doctor in this house. I don't need a doctor; I need a parent." She even let me hug her. A real hug. And when easy child's DF ruined Easter dinner last night, difficult child didn't get upset. She just said to me that "[DF] needs to loosen up". LOL She is right about that. Just wanted to let you all know. Now, send major juju to thwart the board jinx.
