Easter was very enjoyable. An effort, as we were all getting used to each other in the house again, but good.
Poppet is now in her fifth week in the unit and there has been lots of progress in a number of areas. She is coming home each evening for dinner and a few hours with us, and last weekend was out for eight hours and went into the city with Mr JudyA and a friend to go to a comic book day, have lunch out, trawl through the markets etc. A good time had by all.
The big sticking point is school, and the huge raft of anxieties she has about it for a range of reasons. She's been doing school work in the hospital, but next week she's going to start going to actual school for part of the day, and that's going to be very hard for her - anxieties about her hospitalisation becoming known, being noticed (or not), managing (or not), possibly having a panic attack in public, etc etc.
We would welcome your prayers
more than I can say. Mr JudyA has already put a request out on the church prayer chain so as many people as possible can be covering this in prayer. It's scary, but this is the next step.
