The med change has greatly helped. Akila is now taking one of the risperidone in the morning, and one after school, instead of at bedtime. We started taking it last week when she got home from school, but that was challenging. She would be explosive when she got home and resistant to taking the med.
So the school is giving it to her at the end of the school day. Amazingly, it is not hard to swallow, and she doesn't hate it, and it doesn't hurt her throat, and so on and so on. I am hoping this will continue to help.
I feel like I have been working non-stop on paperwork the last two weeks. Each time I think I'm through, I get a new item in the mail from the county requesting more (between the TEFRA, PCA, and requesting a DD case worker, it's nuts!- and I haven't even started the SSI application process that I am thinking about doing). Had to dig out of the archives her SS card and birth certificate today. I need to get more organized.
WCCO TV was at our school today and Imani and Hezekiah were taped for some kind of thing that will play on some day. Is that vague enough for you? I was trying to understand what they did, and it was clear as mud. Imani was able to tell me that it was channel 4, and that they were by some TV guy with white hair and she couldn't remember his name. I said, "Don Shelby" and she said yes, that's the guy. She thought it would not be today though. I'll have to try to ask a teacher tomorrow, if I remember.
I'm meeting my blog buddy, Linda, tomorrow- can't wait!!!
You've Got the POWER!
