Before I start, I need to announce a new change. It will be very confusing - and I'm sorry - but I just need to do it. For a while now, I've been using the pseudo-names Prairie Dawn, Grover, and Zoe for my kids. With everything that has been going on, it seems that those names are a little too confusing - a lot of people think that those are my kids' real names. That being the case, I'm changing the names I use when talking about my kids. From now on, my oldest daughter will be Peanut, my son will be Butter, and my youngest daughter will be Jelly. I figure that maybe no one will think that those are my kids' real names. I'm sorry for the confusion. From this point on, I will be using those names to describe them. Grover will now be called Butter.
I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on how things went with the doctor today. The counselor emailed me and told me that the doctor approved the request for residential treatment - yet the facility is full. There is a 3-4 week hold on new applications.
I don't really know what that means - except I will need to wait 3-4 weeks to find out anything else. I'm not sure how I really feel about it. Just waiting will be hard. I worry about what Butter could accomplish in 3-4 weeks. Things have been slowly escalating the past 3 weeks - who knows what could happen in another 3 weeks.
I don't really have much more information, right now. I will hopefully know more over the next week or so. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts. I want to thank everyone for the kind words and emails.
