Daughter was calling me by 9:00 this morning, sobbing and begging me to come get her. Nine new people began while she was gone, and she was having a hard time adjusting. That's not what she told me, but that was the program manager's explanation in a series of text messages. I told Daughter that the first day back is always hard and I had confidence in her ability to cope. I told her I'd see her this evening. I then went out for a blood draw and to the store. She called the house multiple times while I was gone, but didn't call my cell.
I had considered keeping her home tomorrow because she has two appointments. Instead, I'm going to drop her off after the first appointment and pick her up before the second. I don't want her to have to suffer through the first day back twice this week! Change is hard for Daughter. Hopefully the rest of the week will be easier for her.
