Son at ER - please pray. FINAL update in OP

Recommended Posts

Do you have support for when he is released? The friend I spoke of--he stayed with us during the day sometimes while his parents and siblings were at school/work. He couldn't be alone.

 

Thank you for your prayers.

 

Yes, we have support. My DS has been severely depressed for a decade, and we have been through this before.

Thank you for the update. Ten years -- I can't begin to imagine such a long term struggle. Hoping for the best possible outcome in the circumstances.

I'm glad to hear he's settled and gets to keep his kindle. :grouphug:

 

I guess with his three talkative siblings there, the nurse wanted to avoid hearing about how DS must have his Kindle. Because they took it away -- no electronics. We brought him some books.

I'm proud of him for realizing he needed help and for being willing to accept it. Prayers for him and your whole family as you navigate this.

Thank you for the encouraging update -- I'm so glad your ds realizes he needs help and that he needs to be in the hospital. I'm very relieved to hear that it sounds like a nice facility.

 

I'll bet you're right that you were able to sleep because you'd seen the place for yourself and feel your son is safe there. You must be exhausted! :grouphug:

I'm still praying.

I'm not surprised you crashed so hard. You might have been running on adrenaline and then your body was just done.

RC I am remembering your son in my prayers, and have to say I am also thankful that you have the liberty of getting some much needed rest while others are on watch. Also, I want to say your other kids sound awesome. You are all mighty blessings to one another. Praying for your dh, too.

FINAL UPDATE:  DS is home!! He feels better mentally, even when compared to how he feels a day after he has electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)!  The doc added Lithium to help his antidepressant medication. I hope it continues to work because he is now at a 7 on an increasing scale of depression instead of a 9 (after ECT). Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts. We all really appreciate you!

Still praying for continued, consistent, and long term improvement.
