Hello, everyone! I'm finally back! Our schedules changed (what with husband quitting his job to stay home while difficult child attends public school) and then the computer died. Spouse unit finally replaced the hard drive and I don't know what else, so now it's working again. Hurrah! difficult child is doing well enough in public school. Having to cooperate for "only" 3 1/2 hrs a day is certainly better for him than when we had him trying to hold it together for a full day program. His easy child sister is doing well enough in public school as well, although she is not as cooperative as she could be. Getting really snotty in her old age (8). husband is still good with the SAHD concept; all power to him. I couldn't do it without going bats. difficult child is still on 20 mg of Lamictal twice a day. The add-ons we tried didn't do anything for him. We do think he has improved over the last five months but not anywhere near enough that we want to try putting him back into a full day program anywhere. Now I'm looking around for a cheap (key word is "cheap") part day program for summer so husband can have a few hours of peace during the day. We had a medical oddity with difficult child. A few weeks ago, his teacher (who is very nice but kind of clueless) said that he sort of blanked out in class -- rocked, smacked his lips, etc and couldn't be brought out of it for a few minutes. So, tons of blood work and an EEG later, they haven't found a flipping thing wrong with the cub and no one has observed anything like it since. Knowing this cub, he was probably just messing around but everyone freaked out. My medical insurance became significantly poorer this year, so this was not cheap for us. Sigh. Now I have to start digging through all the old posts here to figure out what's changed in everyone's lives since I was here last! I might not be able to get on every morning, but I'll certainly be able to visit again regularly. Love all you guys -- and I thought of you often!
