Rough Night May 20, 2008

Last night was a rough one around here.  My son had another episode that ended in a restraint.  The good news is that it had been a couple of weeks since we last had to restrain, but last night he just lost it.  His older sister didn’t want to play with him and he just couldn’t handle that.  It was a tad early for meds, but I decided to have him take them at that point, hoping it would kick in and head off a meltdown.  Well giving the meds starting us down the “point of no return”.  The restraint lasted about 15 minutes, and then he calmed enough to get ready for bed.  I laid with him until he fell asleep.  He was so restless when we first got to his room, but between a backrub and calming music (Josh Groban) he finally calmed down enough to sleep.

Tonight was better, so I hope we continue to have better nights.
