Are you using geodon for your kids? I'd love your opinion on the drug and how it affects your child. Feel free to email directly if you'd rather discuss off-blog for privacy reasons.
Sissy is titrating off resperidal and onto geodon. Max dose after full titration will be 60mg. Then we watch/observe for two weeks before we add more.
titrating meds on an already disregulated child... yeah. I'd rather get a deep cleaning at the dentist, thank you.
Biggest symptom right now - hyperspazz and quick rage flash (and that would be uber quick because she usually goes flight/fight rage in 3 seconds) Today was a rage in the school parking lot before I even got them home. Fun, fun.
All I've got to say is, thank goodness for the safe room because when we got home, she flew into the house, heaving backpack across the living room and slamming the door behind her.
*nonchalant glance at WG with a shrug of my shoulder while we stood in the front entryway bewildered* "So... how was YOUR day?"
WG gave the typical response after Sissy goes to rage. Her facial expression says, seriously? you're going to ask me that particular question right NOW? complete with a dramatic dip of the chin and an upward glance of the eye followed by a shoulder shrug rebuttal and a roll of the eyes.
And that's all the time I'm going to devote to Sissy-speak for today.
Here's some photos of the things I'm going to be working.
Sissy's teacher is having a baby girl sometime before spring. She was her teacher last year too and my personal rule is, if you have to teach my kid two years in a row, you get perks. (this has actually happened before when Sissy and AB ended up with the same first grade teacher)
Color swatches for the baby quilt
180 cut blocks - 3 inch finished squares
Turkey Panel with 9, 6 inch complimentary squares
Am I the only weirdo that has to map out her quilt plans on graph paper BEFORE she cuts and quilts?
And because I'm notorious at scrounging for end of bolt bits, I made this last night for WG. She has outgrown her baby size polar fleece throw and is making noises about wanting a room update (it's pink and purple vertical stripes with three foot Dora painted on the wall. UCK. She is a tomboy.)
