I’m picking up my precious Alfonse today, in just two hours, from the hospital after a long and grueling stay. His tenacity is overwhelmingly inspiring to witness. He asked to come live with me for awhile so that’s what we’re doing. I’m so glad!
I went in yesterday for a discharge staffing and he told the Dr. he was lucky to have someone to go live with who loves him and who he can relax with. He’s told me over and over the new medication is “the first time I haven’t heard voices since 1992”. All of his symptoms are being rated at 1 or 2 right now. Wow.
I’ve spent these weeks lining up new plans for him and our family starting with that new Dr. who comes tomorrow at 10am for a home visit. John is on board with all the plans too so….off we go in to the next chapter.
John is also wanting to get in to volunteering, take a pottery class, resume his Spanish classes, and way more high functioning activities that he was involved with before. He also told the staff he was “going to help with chores” at my house. lol
I’m taking him to dinner tonite at Red Lobster or wherever he wants to go. I have all the cats here so they will be happy to see him too.
Yay……..all the hopes, prayers and optimistic thoughts paying off. Alfonse is back!!! 🙂
Never give up!
