Changes have been made at the home and things are better already. Regina and Les have been moved into their own room together at the other end of the house which seems to have made the difference. Regina is calm and even happy at times. She doesn’t see me and fly into a rage. We even sat at the kitchen table together and had a few moments of pleasantness. So for the moment we will continue with this arrangement while checking out other options to have something to fall back on.
We had a great family get-together last week and I took Marv to my sister’s house where the group were all going to meet. The food layout was a big hit with Marv and he enjoyed standing at the counter eating fruit and veggies with dip to his heart’s content. The home is on a very strict diet for the folks and the storage is locked with child locks. So cupboard grazing is out for Marv. Once in a while it is fun to watch him enjoy the treat of just eating with abandon. I don’t believe ever in his life did he just enjoy food like he does now.
We stayed with the family group until about seven o’clock when he started looking very tired and I took him back to the home where once again he settled right in and was content. I’m so happy that the family and friends continue to include Marv and enjoy his childlike new personality. It’s great to have such a gracious, considerate, loving family.
See ya next time.
