Having Done All,…

…stand.

Well, IRP somehow convinced the staff at the hospital that she was okay. So, they discharged her. She refuses to come home and doesn’t want our help.

All that is left for us to do is pray. And, that is what we are doing.

We love you, IRP, no matter what. And, we are waiting for you to come home.

A Sad Necessity

As I mentioned in my last post, IRP began to show signs of severe depression again Thursday. She even posted a letter on her bedroom door that she had written the day before. The letter talked about her urges to cut and otherwise harm herself. She said that she had given up. These and other things obviously alarmed us.

When IRP would not accept our help and moved in with a “friend”, we had to do something. We were afraid she would either actively harm herself or neglect herself until she was once again critically ill. Reluctantly, FMP spent most of Friday filling out a mental health warrant on IRP.

Yesterday, the warrant was served and IRP has been taken to a mental health facility involuntarily to be given help. As expected, she is very angry with us. In fact, she is currently refusing to see or speak to us.

Obviously, this is not something we did lightly. In fact, we feel horrible about it. But, we would rather have a live daughter who hates us than a dead one who does not. Please pray for IRP and for us. We believe we did the right thing, but it is still so very hard.

Thank you!

Won’t You Please Come Home?

Thursday night, we realized that IRP was beginning to be severely depressed again. When we began asking her how we could help and offering to take her to get such help, she decided that we were over-reacting. As a result, she has moved to a friend’s house.

We are afraid that IRP will not take care of her wounds from the surgery properly and that she will not take the medicines and eat the proper diet as the doctors have told her to do.

Please, sweetie, come home and let us help you!
