Tigger was accepted to start at the school refusal and anxiety program next week. It is a 3-week PHP program (although they said some kids take a little longer). It sounds like such an awesome program. All kids 6-12 are together but the hospital has 6 or 7 adolescent specialty units and the tdocs from there 'push in' to the child unit. They get 15 therapist sessions per week (I think all small group). Tentatively Tigger will get: 1. Five from the 'school refusal/school anxiety' tdocs 2. Two from the 'general anxiety/Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)' tdocs 3. Some from the 'autism' tdocs and I don't know about the rest, they might be general therapist stuff (teach relaxation skills, listening to parents/teachers, etc). Only problem is it will take over an hour to drive there each day. I'm clearing my schedule so I can just hang out in the area up there rather than drive back and forth. Luckily, it is 5 minutes from a major mall I haven't gotten to window shop in years. And my mom is giving me money to pick up some presents she needs - but I get the fun of picking them out Tigger and husband has another conflict today while I was out and it took me over an hour to get Tigger to get 'unstuck' and move on. What finally did it was we were in the backyard and saw some boys throwing rocks -- they were throwing them at a very injured frog. I don't know if they did all the damage (two legs torn off, skin ripped off the top of its head, but they were clearly enjoying torturing it). I was livid. Tigger told them that they were 'donkey butts' for thinking it was fun to kill things. We 'rescued' it and it is in a tank on our table right now but it is so severely damaged that I doubt it will last much longer -- but at least it won't spend its last few hours being tortured.
