We have all arrived safely in North Carolina. Hope had a major rage when we stopped for dinner last night. She has only had one short (25 minute) rage today. Today she was set off by the word "no", which is almost always a trigger for her. Last night, she was sleeping when we stopped for dinner and woke up raging. The shrink and the waiver worker are saying she will be hospitalized if we can't stop the raging. The Dad is resistant to outside the home respite and to PRN meds. It doesn't sound like he is going to have much of a choice. The whole situation is depressing.
At least I get to spend 3 days with my sister and niece. They are a lot alike!
