So difficult child#1 has been at the psychiatric hospital for 5 days now (since Thursday) and today we had a meeting with the Social Worker assigned to him. He's had a rough couple of days with some big meltdowns...last night he even attacked my father during our visit and then ended up attacking some of the staff, leading them to get a PRN from the psychiatrist for some Thorazine. Today was another bad day for him as well. The Social Worker seems to be leaning towards the same initial impression of the other Social Worker- ODD with some Depression. I'm still not convinced that's the whole picture, but I'm not a Dr. We'll see...he hasn't been discharged yet. They're going to start him on Risperdal tonight to "lengthen his fuse" to help give him more time before he explodes so hopefully he can calm down and control his reactions a bit more and be less impulsive.
