Prayers needed

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

Thank you all so much - it really means a lot to know I have you all as a support group. :hug3:

They are letting my mom see Bob! She's on her way up to the hospital right now. I guess on weekends they have visitation for a couple hours. I'm hoping that Bob will agree to let me go see him tomorrow - my mom wanted to go alone tonight because she was afraid he may be embarrassed, which I would totally understand.

His detox seems to be going as well as possible. They have him on phenobarb right now to help with the process. That's about all we really know right now.

Thanks again, everybody.

That IS good news! I can understand his slight embarrassment, now that he is in a better frame of mind.

Well they've let my mom see him a couple times and I got to hang out with him for about 30 minutes. He was in pretty good spirits - kinda chagrined, but able to joke about it. I made sure to keep my visit light (though I did tell him I'd kick his ass if he ever did something like this again). My mom is heading to the hospital now to meet with him and his doctor - I think they're sending him home this morning. My mom is torn on that - of course she'll be happy to have him home, but she's also worried whether he's learned enough coping skills in 72 hours to keep him from doing this again.

Thanks for asking, Deb. :)

I would hope a Social Worker/Psychiatrist at the hospital would help your Mom and Step-Dad with the next step of returning home. I am sure you are aware he isn't "cured" and needs lots of support.

Continued good thoughts for your family. There is a lot of work that needs to take place at this point to help him heal and to teach your mom what signals to be on the watch for.

They didn't let him go home this morning, they're thinking maybe Tuesday. Both my mom and I are kinda relieved. I've gone back home after making my mom swear up and down that she'll call me if she needs ANYthing.

Thanks again for all the good thoughts!

Thank you guys. :)

Bob got to go home yesterday afternoon. I haven't called to check on things yet 'cause I want to give him and my mom time to settle in, but I talked to her on her way up to get him and she was thrilled and said he was thrilled. I assume they sent him home loaded up with appointments and instructions.

So things are looking up!
