Okay.....have not been here for awhile....Aug at least, and ALOT has gone on since then. His psychiatrist had put him on Haldol as one of his medications and bascially he went psychotic on that anti-psychotic. He was hearing voices, threatening not only students at school but also teachers with threats he knew he oculd not follow through with. We have been back and forth to the doctors. Had a horrid therapist where he was going and had started the process of getting him out of that program and getting him back with his psychologist that he had seen since he was 6 but everything blew up. Neighbor had to move and couild not take her small chihuaua (sp) and gave it to him since he wanted an inside dog. A few weeks later he "rolled over on it in his bed" and the dog died. Since he is a hefty weight and sleeps hard I gave him the benefit of the doubt on it, We have two older dogs outside, 8 birds, 2 hamsters and 4 pet mice that he has never hurt. Well then he bought a puppy at the flea market and even though I was concerned I fell in love with her. I left the two boys for 15 minutes watching CARS 2 on tv to run up to the store. While I was gone he hung her from the doorknob by her collar. She was not dead when I got home but died a few hours later. I called crisis counselor and we both spoke to her. He told her voices were scaring him and he feared doing something to me or his brother so I called the police and had him baker acted (marchment). They immediately took him off the Haldol but we had already discussed residential care. He was turnd down at the three closest places but finally was accepted at one in Jacksonville FL.......4-5 hrs from me. This place is called Daniel Memorial. He will go there on Dec 29th.....I was very worried that he would be placed before Christmas. So things have been hectic here....his autistic brother is acting out and I will be getting extra help with him while Daniel is gone. Daniel is willing to go but does not realize that this may be months....not days like the baker acts have been. He says he needs some help...God bless him. If anyone out there knows anything about this Daniel Memorial I would love your input. Diane...whose heart is breaking but knows she is doing the best for her child and for his brother.
