A heartfelt thank you to you all for all the support and comments today. I can’t tell you how much that means to me. I’ve read all of them multiple times.
Ended up taking John out to dinner tonite who was quite a bit better. We shared a huge bear hug before we left and he just kept thanking me for caring about him and loving him and being “such a good sister”. I’m telling you, that
boy man melts my heart.
We went for Swedish comfort food and had a long talk over dinner about this
crappy program. He is ok with bailing on it if they don’t shape up, quickly. Frankly I was ready to ditch them today but texted with Dr. Yasinski who kind of talked me off the ledge and suggested we wait just a little longer for a variety of well thought out reasons. I trust him. In many ways he’s the only person I trust who’s been involved in John’s care so his recommendation made sense to me.
I do see us eventually landing in his care ultimately but have to kind of take some steps to get there.
So we’ll wait it out but I’m drafting a letter to the other Psychiatrist about the events over these last few days to let them know, in writing, how they’ve dropped the ball repeatedly on John. I’m a big believer in documentation. All those years as an RN are still with me I guess.
Anyway, I’m hunkering down on this stormy night, watching Project Runway, eating my tart frozen yogurt that I love and letting the stress of this day melt off of me.
Just wanted to extend some love and appreciation before this day ends.
I love you all.
