difficult child will be released this Fri from the psychiatric hospital. It was been 3 weeks and he has made quite a bit of progress. The novelty of being there has worn off and when we had to leave him this am, he started to get upset (not angry, but sad). My difficult child has never been sad a moment in his life. For the first time EVER husband and I saw an emotion other than anger come across his face. In the 4 years we have been dealing with this I honestly have never seen another emotion cross his face. My heart broke for him, but he held himself together. I was proud of him. Everyone there from the adies, to the nurses to the doctors have seen progress. He will be able to start school on time, which is next week. We can't wait for him to come home...he's just a little guy, only 6, but he has gone through this like a trooper. On this new protocol he his finally calm, no more manic running around flitting from this to that to this. He is not sedated calm, but I think his head has finally slowed and he can focus more, which is amazing. psychiatric hospital psychiatrist talked with-our psychiatrist who wanted to take him off the Seroquel and place him back on Abilify. husband and I said NO. The Abilify did not help as well as the Seroquel seems to, but I said I need to be with difficult child 24/7 in order to dictate that change, but as of now Serquel is working and I'm not ripping him off this one to back track! So the releasing diagnosis is ADHD (severe) - mood disorder not otherwise specified. That is what I expected since they say at his age they really can't diagnosis Bipolar. They went in there with ADHD and rule out (rule out) bipolar. They said they can't rule it out yet - so we get the mood not otherwise specified. I'm satisfied. and HAPPY he'll be home!
