The nightmare continues. New update 6/25 in OP


Lizzie in Ma

Recommended Posts

I feel selfish for asking for more prayer cover when so many of you have problems of your own.

But right now there is nothing I won't do and we need prayer cover for Jenna and our family.

I know I was ambiguous before but we came too close last night.

Our precious girl is back in inpatient with 50 stitches and an utterly broken heart and soul so I am begging for as much prayer cover as I am able to find.

We are exhausted and heartbroken.

 

Update. 

The prayer cover has helped me maintain the strength to keep fighting for our Jenna. And we have found our miracle.  Instead of having to send her somewhere long term, which we all knew would break her soul, but no one offered any other choice, we have found IHT and set the ball rolling.  She will HAVE the long term intensive therapy she needs IN HOME!!!!  Child and family services, whom we all avoid as homeschoolers, will now provide for us an entire team to help our baby.  She will have two therapist appointments a week, here with the therapist she met with once before all this happened and others two more days a week and the entire team meets weekly to discuss her case so everyone is on the same page.  The IHT people also help us deal with all this as a family and they are not restricted to a 50 minute session.  I am so angry this was never mentioned as an option the first time around, or the second, I only found in with a marathon Google search looking for resources.  And insurance covers it as it is a state program offered to anyone under 21.

I feel, at last, hopeful.  We went to see her last night in the acute care place where she is currently and was able to tell her she is coming HOME!

As nights are the worst for her, we will take turns sleeping in her trundle bed for the time being. 

So, again, no words for the gratitude I feel for all of you.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for praying for us.

 

Update 6/15

We had a meeting up at the place where Jenna is currently yesterday.  They strongly feel she isn't ready to go home.  She is still a danger to herself.  Not 24/7, but when she gets there, it is still really bad.  They upped her depression meds and added anxiety meds and one to help mitigate her nightmares.  She has been accepted over at an acute residential therapy unit where she will go for the next two weeks,  Here it is less restrictive but still 24/7 and she will be safe.  Here also she will finally start to get intensive therapy.  We are hoping after this step we can then move to the in home therapy.  We have also done paperwork for a Dept of Health and Mental Services caseworker to be assigned to her.  This person will help us to obtain resources and coordinate her care through all the different services.

She looked fragile yesterday when we saw her.  She didn't want hugs from either of us.  Not mad at us, just like if we did, she might break.  Hopefully today we go up and take her to this new place and admit her there. 

 

Update 6/25

We had her home on a day pass yesterday and it was wonderful.  She is making short and long term plans for her life which was so good to hear.  We went shopping, out to lunch and picked up some used cds.  Then we hung out at home, played chess, had pizza with friends and then drove her back up there.

It looks like we go pick her up on Tuesday from the program to come home for good.

Not going to lie, it is a little scary.

But her In home Therapy is all set up, her therapist is all set to come twice a week for now and she will also have a therapeutic mentor, someone who will hang with her, take her out in the community and work on her anxiety issues in real life situations. They are still titering her meds and she sees her new psychiatrist on 7/6.

We will have some backup for a month as well, my bff and her son are coming for a month from Denmark (as they have every year) so that will be a blessing.

Again my deepest gratitude for the prayers and good wishes.  You all have really kept me going through all this. No words for how much it truly means to us.

Oh Lizzie... :grouphug:  :grouphug:  :grouphug: 

 

I am literally typing through tears.  You and your family and especially your precious Jenna are in my prayers.  Please don't ever hesitate to reach out to your friends here.  We will not let you down. I have personal experience with a dd who (in earlier years) also had broken heart and soul.  Prayer was and still is my constant companion.  Never give up.  Miracles DO happen. Sending love your way.

I'm sorry Jenna is in so much pain and that your whole family is suffering. I feel awful for you all.

 

I'm praying for all of you.

 

Sometimes things are so bad that the only prayer we are capable of is to say the name Jesus.

Lizzie, praying for you, Jenna, and your whole family. I am praying that people in your life will provide love, support, a meal, an ear, or whatever other needs you have. I know many of us wish we could help in more tangible ways.

Don't hesitate to continue to ask for prayer.  I have often been blessed by those who prayed for us when even praying was more than we could manage.  We are privileged to have the opportunity to bless you and your family in this small way. 

 

I commit to praying for Jenna and your family.
