At Last

I finally heard back from Psychiatrist's nurse today. We're doubling Daughter's depakote and doubling the morning lithium. After 5 days, I take her in for another blood test. They asked again if I was sure she is taking her meds. I assured them she is. I think, though, that I will watch her take them just to be sure.
Daughter came home in a fairly chipper mood today, and has been able to maintain it pretty well. Of course, I haven't made any demands on her, which helps. She spoke with Case Manager today about her desire for a job in the community. We're going to start by trying to find her a cleaning job here in town. We'll see how that goes. CM and I suspect she won't like it, and that will end her complaining, at least for a while.
I'm working at getting caught up and back into a normal routine. Today I got my hair cut. I was way past due. I'm almost done taking out communion to shut-ins. I had hoped to get that done before Easter, but that didn't work out. Even with the little challenges my parents are experiencing, I'm managing to stay focused on what's happening here. I'm going to register for the conference in June that we attend every year. I know there will be another crisis with my parents, but I'm not going to sit around waiting for it. I'll deal with it when it comes.
