Lots of things to process here and I’ll try to do it slowly over the next several days. Blitzen had a really rough end of the week. Really rough. I came back early rough.
I probably over-reacted. Andrew says that I was just missing Blitzen and used the nuclear meltdown as an excuse. That could be true. I was missing Blitzen but it is hard to be 11 hours away by plane when the bomb that is only-very-occassionally-now Blitzen detonates. By the time I got on the plane, things had calmed way down. Blitzen was safe and home. I am sure a lot of you are wondering what the hell happened and I am not going to tell you. It is part of Blitzen’s story, maybe she’ll tell you sometime.
I will say this – my husband is a rockstar. Our agency really stepped up and supported Blitzen and supported us. The school did exactly what they had to do to keep Blitzen safe and they were communicative and helpful.
Now we’re thinking about how to work more closely with the school to connect them to Blitzen’s mental health care providers and work holistically as a team. That is really tough – everyone is willing but it is a challenging thing to connect all of the dots in a meaningful way. And there is a lot that we don’t know. We need to do a better job educating ourselves about what is possible, what options are available to us.
So we’re exploring. We’re on to a new phase – its a good thing, overall. Blitzen and Andrew had an amazing week. They took really good care of each other. I heard lots of fun stories about their adventures, I look forward to sharing them because, apparently, Andrew hates to blog :) Love you, honey.
