Update on my son Joseph

As you all know if you follow my blog, my son Joseph was admitted to ICU for several days for what I was originally told alcoholic DT's.  It seems that was not the truth!  It appears enroute to the jail, he began having some type of distress and they admitted him to the emergency room.  The doctor orders Librium and the nurse gave him the incorrect medication which caused immediate seizures, vomiting and drop in blood pressure causing them to admit him to ICU.

He has talked to his brother a few days ago and is staying with a woman who cares for him and several others that are homeless when she can and states he has been sober for 10 days now and is waiting to get into rehab.

Please pray this was his wake up call.

Unless you have a family member that is mentally ill or homeless you cannot know what we go through, the times we have tried to get him help and the times he has walked away from help.

Please just continue to pray!

Hi, I'm glad he has somewhere to stay with someone responsible watching over him. I pray that this was his wake up call also. I will continue to pray for him; I totally agree that unless we've walked that path we really don't comprehend how hard it is.
Blessings, Noreen
