My daughter started new medication today.  I some ways, it was our best day together in over five years.  I know better than to let myself hope that this a magical solution, but I really hope this is the start of new chapter for our family.

 

Tonight was the first night I can ever remember hugging her goodnight and not bracing myself to get through it and act sincere.  By bedtime, she is usually completely overstimulated, impuslive and impossible.  But tonight was different joy.gif

 

So knock on some wood for us!

Thanks for all of your well wishes smile.gif

 

Jenny has had a few minor struggles over the past few days, but no aggression, no need to be restrained and only one timeout.  This is a huge change!  Tomorrow we return to the routine of school and homework, so that is a new challenge.

 

My husband and I have often been moved to tears by little things we did as a family that would not have been possible without major meltdown and aweful feelings on our part.  This morning, I got to crawl into bed with my daughter and hug her.  She giggled and hugged me back.  Bittersweet that it took us five years and lots of different treatments to get to this point, but still good!
