I wanted to be sure you all knew how much I appreciate your support. I am sorry I did not post this sooner, but your support was so overwhelming, I just never expected the emotion behind the responses. I am proceeding with the low cost legal thing, and hope to hear back from that in the next week or two. It is hard to rush things when you are asking for financial help. The kids are doing better than I thought. easy child is really not talking to him, she is at the fair all week with friends who have market animals and having a good time. husband keeps texting me asking why she won't talk to him, and I ignore him. If I respond, which is rare, it is either short or first thing in the morning so he will be asleep and not respond right away. He has not called much, maybe 2 or 3 times so that is a blessing. difficult child seems to be ok, he has been acting up a bit over the last 2 days but that is to be expected. He saw his therapist yesterday and I have told her the whole story. She said he did good talking about some really hard stuff. She finally got all her stuff into the county for the wrap around services, so hopefully we qualify and they can help us, we need it now more than ever. I get the results from his neuropsychologist testing on Monday, and that will be very interesting to see. I am doing well. It is really sad how the aura (not sure of a better word) of the house has changed. It is much more relaxed and happy, and that is so sad. difficult child used to only watch TV in his bedroom, and he is so much more social. He can play and roughhouse out in the living room with the dogs now, which drives me crazy at times but it is cute. The other day he got into a howling match with his dog (in his bedroom thankfully) that had us all in stitches. Even easy child said that with Dad gone we got along better, she liked it better. That is a lot considering they were so close. So I thought I would check in, hope all is well with you.
