I just wanted to let everyone know how touched I am and what it has meant to have so much support and love from all of you. I didn't know what to do or where to turn and as usual found everything I needed here. The advice that y'all have given me on how to deal with this devastating situation with my brother has helped not only me but my whole family. I couldn't have done this without all of you.
We did get my brother in a facility and were hoping that he could stay there for the 90 day commitment. Unfortunately, this facility is an acute care facility so their job is to just get the patient stablized. We are working frantically to try and find a place for him to go when released from there. We have an appt to talk with his case worker on Monday so maybe she will have some ideas. His MHMR case worker has said that she will help also.
I have to believe that God is hearing all our prayers and will work it out. I saw my brother today and he still thinks that demons are trying to sacrifice him. In fact, he thinks the doctors are demons and that all the staff are in on it. He believes they are fattening him up and that he only has a few days left. I have never dealt with anything like this and it is heartbreaking to watch someone you love go through this.
Mostly I want you all to know that I feel so blessed to have found such wonderful caring (not to mention knowledgable) friends. Thanks each and every one of you that took time out of your busy lives to help me through this. I know we have a long road ahead but at least we have started the journey. From the bottom of my heart, I want you to know how much I am blessed by you all.
All my love and appreciation -Terri-
