Ssssshhhhhh....

The wango tango is still not living here at the moment.  Freaky.  Traumaversary is coming up in a few weeks....will it last????  Not holding my breath but I am enjoying every moment.

There weren't even repercussions from the 6 hour DCFS worker visit this week.  Huge!



I did start her back on Abili.fy last Friday.  That's the only thing that's changed.  J's been on it before (2 years and 15 lbs ago) and it didn't change anything.  A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G.  She might as well have taken a Tic Tac.  I gave her the same dosage (5mg) that she was on 2 years ago.  The RAD may not have let the Abili.fy work.  The power of the RAD control human spirit?  Maybe now that she's attached she'll actually allow the med to work???  I don't know.....  Kristy was shocked too and we both told her that we were so happy that the "Real J" was back and that we'd missed her.  She loved that!!!

Her sense of humor is back and there is lots of laughter and giggling which makes my heart sing.  I didn't realize how much I missed her laughter until it came back.  She has been really helpful and has a great attitude.  Not only that but she has her Attitude of Gratitude back instead of "oh woe is me" attitude.  The spark is back in her eyes too. 

Because the wango tango has been around for a while she hasn't spent much time with her dad.  Now that her normal brain is back she's going to stay with him all weekend starting around 10:30 tomorrow morning.  This is a huge deal for her dad because he normally only wants to do 1 night.  Kristy has been trying to educate him and he listens to Kristy. :)  I have a feeling he's going to be exhausted Sunday night. ;-)

Yeah for J! Yeah for Mom. Enjoy each and every moment (especially your weekend)

P.S. I know where the Wango Tango has gone: It appears to have moved to New England for fall foliage season. Lucky us!

Ellen said...

Glad to see you are back. I've been concerned... and I don't even know you!

May the Wango tango stay far far away. Life is far more enjoyable when he is banished to the dark forests.

Woo hoo! I hope it stays far far away.

I've found Abilify by itself to not be very helpful. It seems to work best as an augmentation to other meds. It was our "miracle drug" for Kitty (who takes it in combo with a mood stabilizer).

I love the butterfly picture! It looks so unreal.

Squeaks and hugs,
