Once again apologies for a long hiatus. By running an experiment, I recently learned that performing a Google search using a couple of easily identifiable search terms (such as the nicknames used for our DCs) results in all of our posts being displayed for the world to see. Unfortunately one does not need a username and password to this site to read whatever one wishes. Knowing this has made me reluctant to do anything more than respond to other people's posts. I hope that at some point we can lock this site down so only certain areas - which do not contain private information - can be viewed without a username and password. But I did want to update my story. YS is home from the hospital. He is making improvement in all areas day by day. He spends most of his time at his grandmother's and the balance with his father. We are grateful that he is finally home. The same family dynamics in place at the time of YS' attempt are still in play. Nothing has changed. As YS told one of his therapists during his hospitalization, "everybody hates everybody." YS wants little to do with us. He tolerates our company but there is no love, no desire to spend time. It is an obligation and I suspect as he progresses through psychiatric therapy, he will be honest about his wishes. We are waiting for his IEP team to complete their battery of evaluations and schedule his eligibility determination conference. We don't know what school will look like for him moving forward. As far as DS, we are getting the silent treatment from him once again. He has stopped responding to texts and blew off a Thanksgiving meal with us. YS came, and it was okay. We ate and watched a movie, and he napped. It was pleasant enough. I hope everyone's holiday season is going well. I am thinking of you all.
