Hi everyone. difficult child is back in psychiatric hospital again. He was evaluated in our local emergency room Friday between 3:30-7:30pm then transported to the psychiatric hospital at 10pm. husband and I were there until them admitting him at 8:30 this morning. This time he didn't come after me, but went at his dad, tried to push him down the steps, good thing husband was holding onto the rail or he would had went down backwards. He then stated he was trying to kill husband. He was escalated from the time he came home from school yesterday and wouldn't calm down even with ativan and zyprexa in his system. He also bit the h*ll out of both his arms, they're both swollen. psychiatrist at hospital wasn't even wanting to admit him, because from the time we were there, until they interviewed him, he finally fell asleep and calmed down, I insisted he stay and signed him in. Not sure how long he will be in but perhaps this will help push it one step closer to Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) placement. I feel like a horrible parent saying that, but then, I don't know how much more husband and I can handle. At least physically husband can handle it better than I can. These episodes are just coming closer and closer together. I hope there's light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for always being here to listen.
