difficult child called me last night all excited, he found out that he is getting discharged October 14th. I was in shock, because the last I had heard it would be Christmas at the earliest. I called the psychiatric case worker this morning and confirmed it. She said the treatment team met yesterday and they feel that he has made significant progress and is ready to go home. She said of course if he starts acting up and losing levels again that they will have to rethink things, but she said plan on the 14th. I believe he has made wonderful progress, but I am concerned that when he comes home that he will revert back into old habits. I told the caseworker that I want some tools in how to work with him, obviously I can't provide the 24-hour environment they have, I am a single working mom. She said over the next few weeks when I meet with the therapist, that we will work on this. She was going to give her a heads up for me that I wanted to start this when I see her on Monday. I need to have easy child prepared for this as well. I will make sure that her therapist knows so she can work with her as well to prepare her. I have an appointment with difficult child's outpatient therapist for me to meet with her the week before difficult child will be home so that she will be up to speed on him and be ready for their first appointment. I'm worried but hopeful.
