Home without incident! I had asked them to make him his own visual schedule and they assigned his favorite tech to be with him, they gave him a boost dose of his clonidine at 4 along with the dose at 5 and other than getting wild on and off (that is normal for him) he gathered up his stuff and came out well. There were lots of discharges today so that helped too. (never wants to leave the party early...one of his rigid things we struggle with) I gave him a choice yesterday, if he could come with me well today following our plan, he could pick out to eat or buying a used game at gamestop and he did that just really nicely. Tried to boss me around a little but I said, then we go..and he stopped immediately, YES Ma'am. Ok good start. When we stopped at the store he found our child locks were on the car again, WHY??? Well, to be safe. When can I have them off? When you have been safe for a full month. Then inside our house he saw me lock the new inside locks. "I feel like a baby" I said well it is just to keep you safe. He said, well I will run away anyway to play with friends. I said, well if I cant keep you safe, you know what the doctor said. He said, yeah he told me I can't live there. I said right. (Doctor asked him if he wanted to live in a group home or foster home, and he said NO!) so I know he still wants to be home if he can't be where all the socializing is 24 hours a day, sigh. He gave them really nice appropriate side hugs and came home with me really nicely. Asked for a sports channel on the radio and didn't end it with you better or I'll beat you up...just back to normal please. I know tonight and tomorrow he may slip into this pattern he has started to use over the past month but at least he is still in there somewhere. I am letting him take the bus tomorrow. Didn't want to upset the boat anymore. It is only one day afterall. No seizures since Sunday! again, here's hoping. Thanks everyone for holding my hand thru all of this. I am giving him his new game boy so he can play the games (not new, the one my friend sent that her daughter wasn't using. He is really relieved, has dreams of us finding the other one and having two, though his was pretty messed up anyway) He wants a snack, I am happy to do a normal mommy thing today!
