Our visit last evening with Gary was mostly very good. He was cheerful, joking about the staff and the building. At least until the psychiatrist came in at the end to talk about meds. Gary got irritable. He said that he was willing to try a medication AFTER he got out. The psychiatrist and we made a case for starting them right away so they could see if he was going to have any bad effects. Gary refused saying that if they did he would be made to stay for several more days to make sure he was stabilized. He clearly thought that by refusing to take the medication in the hospital he would get out more quickly.

He may have been right. He is, in any case, getting out today. He won't have any medications, but he will have a prescription to start.
We have an appointment with the adoption attorney late afternoon and then we will go pick up Gary. We will probably get dinner in The City and head home.
So I guess we will see what we will see.
