a request for a hearing (trying to make it an emergency hearing) to get the county team on board and get difficult child releeased from probation so I can have access to more services for him. He couldn't get accepted to the study because of probation, I won't be able to get a mental health cm with him on probation, and I can't go the route of temporary parental placement with him on probation, so thiss is a real hindrance. I figure the po is there to make sure difficult child complies with court rulings so if he has a whole county team involved, they can verify what he's doing as well as she can. She never even returned my call from 2 weeks ago answering my question about could he get put back on a monitor if necessary as a preventative measure because he's still not stable. Anyway, he crashed about 5:00 and will probably be out until tomorrow am- except for waking to take medications and maybe eat. Let's hope this doesn't keep him up all night tonight. He was up all last night and still went to school today. I ordered chinese because I haven't made it to the store this week. I didn't realize how much the price of chinese had gone up- we'll be making this last 2 days. I hate the thought of having to go to court again and really hope I've done the right thing and pray that the judge won't revoke difficult child's suspension. But this is a whole lot better than PO initiating a hearing with a recommendation to have probation and suspension revoked. I figure it's the best shot because I initiated it, saying he is not stable and I need to get him more services, and I can go in saying that he has not gotten arrested or been a problem at school. He just needs more services to prevent it. And I need more services to still be able to take care of him. Really- he's right on that line of needing to be in Residential Treatment Center (RTC). My thought on that changes as quick as his moods. I guess it would depend on a lot of things and I need to get more answers about his specific chances at various things. But, I do think that the county team is the way to go, given that the only other options (sd and medicaid waiver) could take forever, or at least another month and right now that seems like forever and my finances won't last that long..
