We have 2 approvals for RTC. One came yesterday for Michael and the other today for Ruthie. They have requested a bed at the same facility for both and hope to put Patches there, as well. It's been harder than I thought.

I'd love to get back to finding humor in my life. I'm working on it. I don't want to be swallowed by grief or anger and if I don't watch it, that's where I'm heading. I'm trying to have fun with my kids a little at a time. We are all holding hour breaths right now. Things should begin to calm once the three are at the hospital. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

As the old song goes: there's a time to laugh and a time to cry. It's ok to be angry with and for your kids. If you didn't love them all so much it wouldn't hurt so much. Don't dismiss your own emotions; you're entitled to them. Wishing you all peace and healing.

I had an awful time when I had to put my son in a RTC. I can't imagine having to do it three times. I wanted you to know my son survived RCT and is now 28 and a responsible adult and father. Prayers and hugs.

you know i've been there. It's a good place, I promise. Make Mr. Harris your friend. AND when they're discharged (i know that won't happen for one of them) you can get them on CBAY which opens up LOTS of doors. This is a chance for everyone else to regroup, settle down and for the three of them to get the medical help they need.

call me day or night, any time, you know I'm here for you.
xxoo

I'm so glad you were able to get approval for them to go to RTC. That seems to be the biggest hurdle for us (DD1 has been in RTC since mid-June). I wish we had been able to get her in RTC when she was younger to perhaps stop some of the behaviors we have now. Oh, well. She's there and we can all regroup and become stronger as well as recover from the violence, threats, etc that had become daily life for us.
Hugs to you. I can't imagine having 3 children going, even if it's for everyone's good. You are such a great Mom and I have learned so much from your blog.

Hang in there, Tudu. You are amazing and, like Lindsay says, you are entitled to your own emotions. Thinking of you.
