We had a transition meeting today for the program that difficult child receives support from. It is supposed to be an 18 month program and difficult child has already been in it for 21 months. He is going to be dropped from the program because they do not feel he is at risk for out of home placement (hospital or Residential Treatment Center (RTC) at this point). The bad part of this is that this is the program that supports respite for difficult child. They will have the program run through March, I think so we should get two more weekends of respite. The respite is so important for husband, easy child/difficult child and me. Who knows? Maybe we'll be able to work something out with his current respite provider but I'm not counting on it. Also this is the program that provided for difficult child's summer camps. We will still send him to a few but not as many as he has had the past two summers. In addition to that, after school difficult child gets dropped off at my school. He was very upset because I was out of snacks-never mind that he was going to get a snack as soon as we got to his therapist appointment. He started screaming and swearing at me and there were still many people around-talk about embarrassing! Argh-I'm glad this day is over.
