We've hit a bit of a rough spot with Kevin. He has mostly been pretty angry since the plate went in. I think it's a toss up as to why; first because he is much more aware of the changes in his life and second because his head doesn't look as good as he thought it would.
There's really not much we can do about him being more aware - that's a good thing really, but in regard to the anger - it's just something he is going to have to work through. As for his head, the surgeon made note that they can take fat from Kevin's belly and inject it into the area of his head that is still indented. Kevin is demanding multiple times a day that the injection happens now. I keep telling him it's not going to happen yet and that just makes him madder. Personally, I am hoping he gets over it and we don't take this step. It's just another source of possible infection and I really don't want us to go through this again.
So he's been pretty rough to be around. He tried to run away last night and he ended up walking about a half mile with me following a few steps behind him. He broke down and sat against a light pole and just cried and sobbed and screamed "WHY?" over and over. It was really heartbreaking and I was crying right along with him. Breezy was just out of sight with the car because we knew he may walk too far to get back home and even she was just crying by herself in the car.
It really all just does suck.
Sometimes things are going really well and then sometimes they just really aren't. I don't really know what to do to help him through this and to make him happy. I am hoping the trip home to PA will work for a bit and then I think it may be time to find something for him to do. He just has to be medically stable first and we still aren't really there.
Oh well. I guess I'll figure it out somehow. Here's hoping I come up with a plan right quick...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
