It actually happened! SW from M's old school showed up at my house bright and early and we drove down to the psychiatric hospital to pick M up. Aside from a few minor mistakes on the psychiatric hospital staff's side (psychiatrist forgot to write a script, SW didn't communicate what time we were discharging, so nobody on the unit was ready for us, yadda, yadda, yadda), it went off without a hitch! M got up, got dressed, brushed his teeth, and left without one iota of a fight! We stopped in the cafeteria to snag some breakfast for M and in the van we went! We got to the school and the new school's SW met us outside. M was introduced to a few kids that were also placed there from his old school (who will also be riding the bus with him from our school district tomorrow) and then was taken to his class. He made it the entire day with no incidents and they had an awards ceremony and they gave him a special certificate for becoming a part of their community. He earned 96% for the day and got to pick from the prize jar, they watched a movie, and life was copacetic! Gosh I hope tomorrow morning goes as well! After school we picked up his grandma (my mother) and went to the park with C and they played for a couple of hours...even got ice cream from the ice cream truck. I figured it certainly beat sitting around home and risk being "bored!" Then, we ended up meeting up with husband at home for dinner and then going out for a second round of ice cream (heaven help my waistline!) with his parents and M's teenage cousins who are visiting from Delaware for the week. He was sooooo happy to see them (said he can't help but smile ear to ear when he see's them). Came home...medications, bath, bed. Ah. One day post-discharge down. If we can make it past three weeks I will be SOOOOOOOOO happy!
