special place in the mtns for therapy, diagnosis, and outdoor stuff. No video games! I got a call today that difficult child was accepted. They emailed me a letter to show to the judge when we go to court. It's expensive but it's only for 6-9 wks. They will help us determine where to send difficult child to school. I have already decided he will not attend the local public HS. No WAY. I have a call in to our accountant, to see if any of this can be deducted for medical or educational purposes, and also to our ins. company to see if they will cover it and pre-approve it. The detective called and said he finally filed a report and we will get a subpoena in the mail later this week. He will get the same subpoeana so he doesn't know the date or the judge; that's determined by the court. He is not going to pursue charges against the other kids because it's too hard to prove. GRRR. And the woman who pawned the stuff did it in another city, so I have to filed a police report there and start from scratch. ARrrgh! The ins company does not have the rings listed separately (only my wedding ring) but we can use our regular policy. I don't know if they write us a check and we pay them back if we ever get money from the Pawn Woman so I am awaiting a return call from them, as well. In the meantime, difficult child's lithium is working, (to a point; he still is who is is) and I am requesting that we start him on either klonapin or buspirone, as per his testing results, that showed his anxiety to be off the chart. Well, close to off the chart. It was a big spike that went nearly to the top of the page. He is at computer camp right now (yaaaayyy!). It is so nice to be able to go from room to room and not have to lock doors behind me. And I've been eating wheat in plain sight. Today I am purchasing a locking fridge (easy child told me that they are sold that way for dorms), and I am looking for someone with-a truck so I can pick up a new bedroom door for easy child. The entire door frame will have to be rebuilt. I have to convince husband today that sending difficult child to this place is worth the money. It is not the huge amt I was thinking of for residential treatment so maybe he'll go for it. Fingers crossed!!!!
