A Day Off From School

The girls had no school today. Ellie, GB's service dog, has diarrhea. MK is bouncing more and more as court gets closer. I have an appointment for a third opinion on the neuroma in my foot next week. Surgery seems inevitable. 

This week, we are focusing on DAY. Any Defiance, Aggression, or Yelling results in time out to get yourself back together.  We also implemented restitution or relationship repair. GB seems to be responding to DAY and I am seeing the first beginnings in Hope that she recognizing  that raging is not making things better.

Organizing is coming slowly, but it is coming. Maybe tomorrow will bring pictures.

I'm interested in this DAY program. Is there a website that explains it?

Can you get the neuroma injected with alcohol to shrink it instead of surgery? I wouldn't have mine taken out if I had it to do over, is why I'm asking. I refused to have the second one done, and although I have to wear Keen's shoes it's worth it.
Also, yay for programs that show progress! Hopefully you will get some good direct services soon too.
