I just received a letter from difficult child. He says things are going very well now with the medication decrease and staff keeping dosages straight. He says he has been one of several students to get "student of the week" for a few weeks now. The staff let him move his bunk and he doesn't have a bunk mate (the last one was intentionally annoying him) as long as he keeps the whole area clean, so he says he is cleaning it every day as best as he can. He started keeping a journal so maybe he won't explode on people (I assume this was a suggestion from his therapist). He wrote a short, positive letter to my mom that I will forward to her. Then, he said for school he had to write a paper on the person he appreciated the most..and he chose little, ole' me! *sniff* I really didn't expect to have any proud or touching moments while he was in Department of Juvenile Justice but my son has never been one to be predictable.
