Yes, another day has gone. I am actually writing at 1:30 a.m. on Friday. So, we could call it Thursday, if we wanted. BUT - I don't really want to go backwards. I am thinking/hoping/praying that Friday will be better than Thursday, and Saturday will be better still.
Today was a very emotional challenging day. At least the afternoon and evening were. But, now that is behind me. I had good conversations with both the psychiatrist and the therapist this afternoon, and the therapist thought it would be beneficial for me to converse with Elizabeth on the phone. So she called me around 6:15. And, she started off with crying and saying that it was time for me to come get her now. That she didn't like it there, that people were mean, etc. I won't go into more detail here, but suffice it to say, it all made me very sad. It ended with her running off the unit where she is. So she had to receive a consequence for that. But the nurse called me about 20 minutes after our conversation and let me know that Elizabeth had not settled yet. Then she called me another 1/2 hour later, and she had finally settled. And, I just called and asked it she had gone to sleep and for this moment in time she was asleep. I am going to do the same pretty soon.
Tomorrow - today - Friday - Vince, Matt and Jordon will hit the road towards the Arctic Ocean. Woo Hoo!!! They are excited. It will be an adventure, that is for certain! Please pray for them all. If he has a connection he will update. I just don't know.
I meet with staff at the hospital tomorrow - today @ 11:30 a.m.
Thanks again for standing alongside us. We appreciate it.
