difficult child 2 has stabilized really quickly - a lot faster than they were expecting when he was admitted. His Depakote levels are good and he's sleeping thanks to Klonopin every night. The psychiatrist just called and said they will release him as soon as I can get there to pick him up. He's a little sleepy from the medications but she said he was fine to go to school. They can't transfer him to partial as planned because it's full. So he'll be back home today. After I got off the phone with her I just bent over and started crying. I'm not ready for him to be back here but somehow I have to pull myself together and go get him. It was such a relief to be able to function normally for 3 days. To sit with his sister and just talk peacefully, without interruption. The thought of having to go back to having him home is just devastating at this moment. I don't know if I can stuff myself back into that box that fast.
