Went as expected, with them recommending that he remain there while they do a psychiatric evaluation. He was pretty mad, I think he really thought he could go home today even though I explained what would probably happen. The judge looked right at me as he spoke (it seemed as though he were reassuring me), saying that from the data on his charges with the running away, cutting, altercation with mother, etc, he could not feel right about sending him right back into the same situation without finding out what all is going on with him. I was so relieved, I'm not ready to have him back yet even though I miss him SO much. Then I got to have 1/2 hour visit with him in juvie (there are some YOUNG kids there - heartbreaking, difficult child said it was one kid's birthday). He was back to being defiant and argumentative. It's probably been about a week since he smoked much so I hope that is still withdrawal symptoms. At one point I got up and started waling away, telling him I am not interacting with you when you are being defiant and he switched it right off crying for me to stay. I got the feeling from the judge and difficult child's public defender that they really care about helping to resolve the situation in the best way for the family. I just hope difficult child will come around and give up this delusion that weed is not a drug and that it is perfectly harmless.
