I just got off the phone with Ian's therapist at residential treatment. Whether or not it was appropriate, I laughed when he told me all this stuff and I apologized. Obviously, he's not thinking things through.<br><br>
The last few days have been rough.<br><br>
Friday, he was caught cheeking his meds and when he was caught, he tried to bust loose on them. They rounded him up.<br><br>
Sunday (after I visited.) He decided he was going to bust loose. Unfortunately, the kid he chose to run with wasn't very fit and he only got a mile before his partner quit. They rounded him up again.<br><br>
Yesterday, he spent all day on the floor in seclusion.<br><br>
Bad News: He's not handling it very well.<br>
Good News: He's doing all the things that tell them he needs treatment.

That really is good news, in a strange sort of way. I'm fumbling here, so bear with me. I would think that it would be easier to work up a treatment plan on a kid who is acting out like this, than on one who does nothing at all. Does that make sense?<br><br>
And I know there are plenty of new babies around here that could use hats <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Exactly!<br><br>
I told the therapist that I was glad he was pulling all this stuff because if he wasn't, that meant that he was basically cheeking his entire treatment plan - pretending to go with the flow to get out. The therapist agreed.

I also tend to think that the more dramatic the reaction, the more likely that the treatment is hitting a nerve. He wouldn't be so threatened if the treatment wasn't aimed correctly. Ya know what I mean? So him running/reacting means 1. he needs treatment and 2. the treatment is probably working or at least is the right treatment.<br><br>
I could also use a hat. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

I laught too at inappropriate moments - like when someone gives me bad news. I guess its better than crying or getting mad.<br><br>
(((((Alia & Ian))))<br><br>
I too could use a hat - a beanie style in black, brown or dark grey would be cool - but I don't want to impose.

Are you on Ravelry, Alia? There are so many great crochet patterns.<br><br>
We could do a swap, knit for crochet <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Glad they're taking good care of him there. I know it must be tough for you both but I'm sure this is what needs to happen!

yes, I just got some amazing yarn that reminds me of those mexican hemp pullovers. I need to take another pass at the one I promised Ribsey, so yes. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> I'll make two.

How about something appropriate for a newborn (gender currently unknown) who may or may not be being toted around in a snugli in 80-90 degree weather?

The yarn I was talking about looks like this but it has reds and yellows in it as well as the blues, blacks, and whites.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:VIWR6nsna6vU4M:http://iloblog.mannevaara.net/blog%3FShowFile%26image%3D1192864726.jpeg" style="border:0px solid;">
