Yay! We made it to the movie! Kev did pretty well, but there were quite a few subtitles and I realized about halfway through the movie that Kevin couldn't read them. Duh! Once I did realize that he wasn't understanding, I started to lean over and read them to him. That really helped. Sometimes I am a little slow, lol.
And tonight Kevin is just frustrated and angry. He is in his room trying to turn over his mattress because his bed is just so uncomfortable. I honestly don't know why it is so flippin' hard to get a different mattress?! I just popped off another email to the case manager and here's hoping that this time - it works. I'm not holding my breath, but I am ready to just scream. Kevin, on the other hand, is screaming. He is in there screaming "HOW LONG? HOW LONG?" and he's just crying in frustration and it is really heartbreaking. This is the kind of crap that just burns me up! Seriously - how much more does the kid have to suffer?
And tomorrow we have a new aide coming. Joseph just didn't work out. It's a shame really, but it is what it is.
Ok, I just challenged Kevin to a game of Skipbo. Anything to get his mind out of his misery.
(OMG! I wrote this last night, hit the post button and walked away. I didn't realize there was an error! Sorry for alarming anyone!)
First 2 from the Nov kit!
