We arrive at Friday without any catastrophes…

J has had a good week.  A little more anxious than we’d grown accustomed to since the last med reduction, but not at all aggressive, angry, desperate.  We all adjusted, and everything has gone well.

It seems that we have overcome yet another hurdle, and it’s all very encouraging.  J now takes ¼ of the medication he was taking when I started writing this blog.  If that isn’t a happy bit of news, I don’t know what it is.

And that brings us to the fact that J will be twenty in 15 days.  Twenty!  It’s amazing!  We thought we were headed for disaster when he was fifteen, and here we are: in one (slightly battered, mildly dented) piece.

What lies ahead?  Well…we need to have his wisdom teeth extracted before he turns 21.  There’s a fun project for you.  We are not looking forward to that, but…it has to be done.  This is going to be an exciting, nerve-wracking year…

So…seven days on less med.  We’re still standing.  We’re still here.  We’re doing well.  And J is happy and healthy.

More to come over the weekend…
