Hospitalization #4, Days 4-5

We haven’t heard from Javan’s nurses, doctor,  or therapist at all. I guess that means nothing too bad has happened. Javan called us last night, but didn’t talk about much. Just told us he loved us, blew us kisses, and said his normal, abrupt, “Ok, bye.” *click*

Tonight’s phone call was much longer and more exuberant. He spoke with me at length about his socks. Apparently, he needed new socks because the ones he wore outside broke. They broke so bad that “if he were really small, he would have to get in a car and drive a whole mile to get around the teared part.” I love the way he describes things at times that let’s me see things exactly how he sees them. A beautiful mind, indeed. He told me I’d need to bring them home so Weebo could sew them, but I told him when socks break we throw them away. We bought him some Spiderman and Ninja Turtle socks, which he seemed delighted upon later receiving.

He then spoke with Dad excitedly about a new movie he saw, “Hook.” He wants to watch it with us when he gets home. Then he talked with Uncle CJ about a bad dream he’d had. He was so excited that we were all coming to visit him tonight.

When we saw him, he gave us smiles and quick hugs and then brought us over to the next table and introduced us to his friend Haley, a cute girl who looked to be about his age. I think someone’s got a little crush. He gave so many sweet hugs and kisses tonight. I loved the cuddles. He told us about his dream and how much it irritated him that he had to remember it. We tried to reassured him that everyone has dreams they don’t want to have and the best thing to do is try not to think on it too much. He told us how annoyed he was that his roommate was always singing about “Waffles, waffles, waffles,” and how he was always turning out Javan’s light when he wanted it turned on. He also told us that he physically pushed his roommate over the lighting issue and swung a pillow at his roommate and a nurse. I’m surprised I didn’t hear anything about that from the nurse.

We’ll get to see him again in the morning for family therapy. Hopefully the therapist will have some better options for longterm term care either in a facility or as an outpatient or in-home service. Well, I’m not holding my breath, but it’s possible.

    It’s a good thing that Spider-Man socks and “Bi-Polar Aspie Mom’s” do not break all that easily. This we do know for sure.
