I sent an email to therapist at Residential Treatment Center (RTC) yesterday regarding the staffing this morning for kt. I basically set up the guidelines for today's staffing. I let therapist know that I wasn't going to sit there & regurgitate the old hx & stuff. That I didn't have the time to listen to psychiatrist (who I have a great deal of respect for) pontificate on his opinions on placement issues & Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) prognosis, etc, etc, etc. Once he gets on a soapbox, you cannot stop the man & I feel that we might as well lock up all children diagnosis'd with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) & throw away the key. I don't believe my email was well received yet I felt the need to let all the professionals understand that I am still the parent. kt coming home isn't what is being recommended by psychiatrist or therapist at Residential Treatment Center (RTC). They feel a step down to foster care would be the best plan. I let them know a couple of months ago there would be no more foster care for kt. kt's anxiety level has lessened, knowing that she is coming home (unlike her twin). Since that decision I get reports that kt looks like a "million bucks". Yet therapist & psychiatrist are not backing down on the need to step down to foster care. Mental health case manager, CADI manager, attachment therapist are all backing up the discharge to home. Most of the services for kt are back in place - still waiting on a couple of items. Respite is already scheduled for the first weekend in March. I'm rambling this morning - thanks for listening. Keep your fingers crossed that I don't blow off these well meaning professionals. I'm generally very diplomatic & business like, but as many of you know, I'm HORMONAL therefore very unreasonable!
