Today, I am traveling out to see David. So excited to see the little man. It has been a month since we placed him out there.Tweet #fighting4answrs
We are still here. WhyNotFathers.com has been largely quiet because there hasn’t been a lot to say.
That has changed.
David’s behavior is becoming more erratic. The residence has undergone a med wash with him. A med wash is where they take him off all of his meds and put him on new ones.
This has been very difficult with out of control behaviors. We are looking at a temporary placement in a different facility while he completes the med wash. This other facility will be in a different town, around 5 hours from home.
If David remains out of control then he will need to be moved to a different facility – Long Term.
More as we hear about it.
We spent the day with David. He got to open his presents from us, and we opened our presents from him. It was a good day.
the facility has apartments for families to utilize when they are visiting. As a result, we spent the day in a home like environment rather than in the more institutional cottage where he resides.
David received an abundance of clothes, and toys. I received a cell phone case and wallet. the siblings each got books or useful items like makeup mirrors.
After lunch we watched a couple of movies and just enjoyed our time with David. He was so different. Calm doesn’t seem to be the right word, as he still had plenty of energy. But you could tell he was working on controlling himself.
When we left, sad to say, old habits die hard. We checked all of his stuff to ensure that he didn’t have anyone’s cell phone. David seems content to be there. I know mom and I shared quiet tears that we had to leave him there.
Merry Christmas David. We love you very much. Keep working on your goals, and maybe next year you can be home for Christmas.
