Just a quick update for those that have been following our family's recent saga-
Claire started on the Geodon last Friday night. She spent the weekend in a drug-induced stupor, but was very agreeable to everything that was asked or expected of her. She was off school Monday, which gave us another full day to let her system start to acclimate to the new med. Tuesday was the first meltdown free school day (and that means before, during, and after school) that she's had in well over a month. Yesterday and today both saw one or two "minor" issues, but I truly mean minor. (i.e.- Telling me she couldn't do her homework because she had other plans, but agreeing to do the work within 5 minutes.)
So...we are, once again, cautiously optimistic. It's going to be interesting to see how things play out over the coming weeks. I know we're no where close to being out of the woods, but for now, she's not hitting herself, screaming uncontrollably, etc.- and for that, I'm breathing again.
