My back is definitely improving. Daughter was home last night, and as I thought, she was quite concerned. She told me several times I was scaring her. I asked her if she'd like to come tomorrow and help me do the cleaning I haven't been able to do because of my back. I promised to pay her. She was very eager to do that.
The referral has gone through for her to start in a sheltered workshop one day a week. As soon as all the key people are back from vacation, we'll have a pre-placement meeting and get her started. She understands this is the first step towards getting a job. I hope she will be able to make this work. We'll increase her days there as she adjusts and is successful. She would like to start with 2 or 3 days a week, but that's not going to happen. I wish I were more optimistic about her ability to succeed there. She's matured so much-- maybe she is ready now to make this work.
