BM Update

If you didn't read yesterday's post, you may want to read it first.

So, when we got to the psychiatrist's office, instead of us waiting in the waiting room, they put us in the kids' playroom in the back, so that Andrew's initial meeting with BM didn't have to be in the waiting room. Then his doctor came to the playroom and talked to Andrew about everything, and he got really upset, crying, etc. So she decided that this time, she was going to talk to BM privately and not make Andrew see her. She felt like it would be very traumatic for him. So, we left, then she called BM back to answer any questions she may have re: Andrew's treatment, and explain to her how Andrew reacts to the subject of her and visiting her. We will call the doctor tomorrow to see how that went.

Then John, BM and the lawyers will meet again, and we can only hope that she backs off and does what's best for Andrew.

He was SO relieved not to have to see her today. I just hope & pray that she backs off, and this wasn't just prolonging the inevitable.

We will see.

Excellent news. It may be putting of the inevitable, but I'm so glad he didn't have to see her today. :)

I feel so badly for Andrew, that he has to be so upset, but it was good for the doctor to see. Then she realizes just how much BM upsets him. I'm sure after talking with BM the doctor will see she is not looking out for Andrew's best interest too. It is pretty clear to see just given her history with (or without) Andrew.
Glad he didn't have to deal with her today. Continued prayers!

Poor Andrew! :(

Yeah I feel for Andrew. It seems that the kids are always the ones that suffer. Not from you or John but just because BM is the way she is. I will keep praying.

Poor kid! I hope the doc was able to have a reasonable chat with BM and help her see how this was affecting Andrew.

I'll keep you all in my thoughts.

I didn't see the first post to give you the strength during the appointment until later today. I am sorry your son is dealing with this. I don't have any words except that you're doing the right things...having doctors involved, etc. Stay strong for him!

i am glad he didnt have to see her, none of this has ever been about HER, its about what is best for andrew, even if it doesnt include her.

apparently, you two are the only ones who see that.

I'm so glad that they didn't make Andrew see her this time. She needs to crawl back under her rock and stay there.
