It’s a roller coaster still

Tuesday was good for Alex, it seems. We didn’t try to take him anywhere, just visited his home and spent time walking around outside with him. He had a few episodes where he hit himself or rubbed really hard at his head, but overall he was content. Not as happy as I’d like, but significantly better than Sunday.

So basically things are the same as they’ve been in the past. He has his ups and downs. The downs have been getting worse and worse for years, and the ups fewer and further between. Unless we can find something to change that pattern, he’s liable to hospitalize himself one of these days just due to the amount of damage he’ll be capable of inflicting.

Tomorrow I’m hoping to visit again. Hopefully his mood stays stable.
