    YES, you certainly DID do the RIGHT THING by taking him to the hospital! He will get the right combination of meds and feel so much better! It may take some time to find the right mix of what works for him, but when they do, it will make a huge difference in his whole outlook on his life!

    HUGS,

    I called the hospital tonight, and he finally came to the phone to talk to me. He told me they had to call a "code gray" on him. I asked him what that meant, and he said he refused to go to his room when he was supposed to, so they called a "code gray" and a bunch of people came in and he ended up being sent to a "quiet room" for awhile. I asked him why he had refused to go to his room, and he said it was because he didn't want to go. I told him that he needs to follow the rules and instructions, and start talking to them about what he's thinking and feeling. He told me he didn't like my attitude, and hung up on me!

    I am hurt by his words and actions, but also somewhat angered. It makes it easier to have him there. He needs help. PLEASE continue to keep him in your prayers! He needs all the prayers he can get right now, and so do the doctors and people working with him, so they can figure out what's going on with him and how best to help him!

    Thanks.
