We had kind of an up and down day today. Mostly Kevin was down, but one of his good friends from PA, Zach, came to visit today and it was really the first time that he was smiling and happy. It made me realize all the more that Kevin is just as lonely as I am - and Breezy too, to be honest. None of us have our friends to come and break the monotony of the days and I think I have to come up with a plan to end social isolation - at least for him. I know it's going to help to have my family here, but it's still not the same as having 'one of the guys' over to play XBox or watch a movie or something.
They did talk to me about a day program at the hospital that I can check Kevin into in the future. I suppose I will just worry about all of this in a few months when we go home.
We also had our first 'session' with the male therapist today. I like that he asked me to leave the room and he talked to Kevin by himself. He then came out and talked to me about things that have happened with Kev lately. I personally think we are off to a good start. Finally. I am just not trained in this field and I have been really worried about saying something wrong or not dealing with a situation correctly.
And now I am off to bed.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
