IFI team says this:
1. violence is never acceptable
2. they need more data to find out what is triggering Sissy to the point of violence against her sister
3. but as long as Sissy is state medicaid and not straight medicaid, we only get 3 hours/week with IFI team
ROCK - Me - HARD PLACE
The IFI team needs more data but they aren't getting more time to gather that data, violence is never acceptable but Sissy can't be removed from the home based on one episode of violence. If Sissy hurts WG to the point of needing medical attention, I get a CPS report filed on me. If I surrender Sissy to foster care because I believe she's a threat in the home, I get a CPS report filed on me.
there is only ONE way out of this loop hole - get more time with IFI so they can either batten down the hatches on Sissy's triggers OR get enough quantifiable data to prove she's too violent to be in the home.
WE NEED THAT MEDICAID!!!!!
This is the most precarious, stressful, gosh-darned awful place to be in. I'm literally snatching WG out of Sissy's way, every time they are in a room together because I have NO IDEA when Sissy is going to lash out.
and let me tell you, she's been a butt. Startin' crap AGAIN this morning. She won't let me catch a break. I'm exhausted, angry, anxious, this is not fun.
