The Week in Review

Monday, May 24th – The Admiral said that The Captain had some issues today, mostly arguments over commands and transitions.  I witnessed a bit of the same when I got home.   The melatonin again knocked him out at bedtime.

Tuesday, May 25th – Again, still argumentative over things during the day.  Both boys skipped homeschool group.  The Captain knew he would not be able to handle himself there, and The Explorer feigned sickness to avoid it.   When I got home from work, The Captain was obviously heading into a mood, so we gave him an extra .5 mg of Risperdal.  The boys had avoided their chores, so I made them do them when I got home.   The Captain found new energy and mowed the back lawn and weedwacked in addition to normal chores.   Quiet time was good until it switched to Bed time, where The Captain threw a fit about going into his room (there’s nothing to do!) and kept coming out of his room, until eventually, the melatonin kicked in.

Wednesday, May 26th – The Captain woke early.  Had a semi-good day, with oppositional behavior to parental requests.   Met with his therapist, which went “Fine.”  Bedtime woes again, until he passed out.

Thursday, May 27th – Day behavior about the same.   Early wake ups all week.  Appointment with The Doctor in the evening.   Two developments… One:  he noted that aggression was gone, but oppositional behavior still existed.  He upped the dose from 2mg to 3mg.   Two:  he discussed apologizing to his brother, which I’ll cover in a separate post.

Friday, May 28th – Woke early again, in a good mood.  I am hopeful.
