when we went to the psychiatric hospital today for our meeting. Only my therapist, the social worker, and husband & I were there. We thought the psychiatrist was going to be there too. Anyways we were surprised because the sw started talking about how the psychiatrist had foreshadowed discharging him soon. No she didn't foreshadow that with us. They wanted us to take him home on a pass tonight and take him to a 1/2 day of school tomorrow and then bring him back. I think then they wanted us to take him home that night or the next day. husband was good. He said that we couldn't just bring him tonight without prepping easy child and the teachers. He said Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night would be better. They wanted us to do Tuesday night but my therapist held out for Wednesday too (she wanted me to go to my book club-I think she wanted me to have another night of rest). So the plan is picking him up at noon on Wed., bringing him home Wed. night and then if it goes o.k. he'll stay at home. The insurance is pushing for him to be released because he isn't showing any violence in the hospital. They know this isn't unusual. We are disappointed this time around. The only thing they did with medications was move around a bit of the timing of the medications and added .05 Clonidine at 4:00. The good thing is they do think we will qualify for this program which will provide more services including wrap around. However, it only lasts for 6 months and can only be accessed once during their entire childhood. Please keep a good thought that difficult child truly is ready to come home. It isn't that I don't want him home-it's that I'm not ready for more violence.
