Well, pass number 2 is in the books. What can I say?
Since David has school and therapy during the day, I spent the day shopping for clothes for him. What 13 year old boy doesn’t need new pants on a regular basis. Although at 4’11” and 79 pounds, it will be a long time before he is in anything with a husky label.
We watched a football game and a couple of basketball games on television. Talked at length about what it will take for him to come home. He seems accepting of the reality that it will be a while yet. A good five hour pass doesn’t equal a return home.
There will need to be a step-down facility between here and home. Some place that is a little more liberal in structure, where we can achieve home visits. Sadly such a facility is lacking in North Dakota.
Tomorrow is the last time I will see David this year. Then head to home. Going to miss him.
