Six months on

It is six months today since B moved out; we were told yesterday that she is now at the point where they will move her from her current accommodation, an hour's drive from us near the Dutch border, to the much closer residential centre where she stayed for respite a couple of times during the summer. She seems in reasonable form at the moment (which of course is why they are now talking about moving her); she had had a very unhappy patch a few months ago, but has returned to a more even keel.

For the rest of us, it has been six months of adjustment to a new family situation, tough occasionally but generally an improvement: far fewer messes to clear up, no constant vigilance on the bathroom and kitchen, much greater freedom for us to go on family outings (most often, of course, to see B up in Limburg). Sounds like she will move in the middle of next month, if the everything is right, and then we will be able to see her more flexibly: maybe even bring her back home for the occasional heavily supervised curry. It's all a process of adaptation...

Oh, that's splendid, that she'll be moving closer soon! I'm glad she's doing well, and I hope she's able to adjust to the move easily and you all get to see her more often. *hugs* to all of you!

Good to hear that she's doing well and that it's generally been an improvement for the rest of your family.

I'm so glad to hear she will be nearer to you, and in the place you wanted for her all along.

So glad to hear you are all doing well with the adjustments and that you will have her nearer by soon. It will make the visits so much more pleasant and enjoyable.

Hugs to you both

I'm so glad to hear she'll be closer to you and I hope she copes well with the further move. I'm glad it's been better, though I imagine it's still very hard. (I reflect that my daughter has been away from home for a four day holiday and I've missed her terribly.)

I'm glad to hear it and especially glad to hear that you've been adjusting well, yourself.
