Example text

Victor sounds as if he is trying to console his father’s coat. Fredrik excuses himself and says he needs to go to the restroom. I can see that he wants to give Victor the opportunity to be alone with me in the playroom. I tell Fredrik that he can sit where he wants to, in the other room, in the playroom or in the hall. When he returns from the restroom, he pokes his head into the playroom and says that he will sit and wait on a chair in the hall. As Fredrik closes the door, Victor is already engrossed in inspecting the toys he has not yet had time to see.

When he sees that Fredrik shows no sign of either sitting down or taking off his coat, Victor moves closer to him. He is endearingly eager to make sure his father is doing all right. He motions to show Fredrik that he should remove his coat. He pulls at his jacket and grabs the lowest button, which is the only one he can reach. Fredrik removes his coat, but Victor wants him to take off his suit jacket as well, and he obeys. I take all their clothing and put it on the unoccupied easy chair. Fredrik takes out his mobile phone and turns it off.

Since the accident Victor has become “precocious, generous, and helpful”. He eats well, likes all foods and sleeps well, never waking Fredrik at night. This used to happen frequently in the past. Before the accident Victor had started potty training. Now the potty has somehow disappeared and the training has been put off for the time being. Almost everything to do with Victor is actually working well, as long as nobody mentions anything about his mother or Oliver. A mere word, a photo, or the mention of the cemetery disturbs his inner balance.
