Grandson is in the hospital
« on: September 23, 2009, 09:30:05 AM »
Dear OCnet friends,

We had to place our grandsonGabriel in the Hospital yesterday. He has been trying to get his medication stabilized over the past month but it has been unsuccessful. His two dignoses ADHD and Bipolar Disorder are often at odds with each other as far as treatment---when they get the ADHD controlled he becomes manic and when he ges his bipolar in control he become hyper. He became very manic and was talking about suicide at school. Please pray for him and his physician, whom we are told does well in adjusting medications as children grow and will be working to get him back to functioning normally we hope. Please keep him in your prayers.

Thankyou for your prayers,

Thomas
Your brother in Christ ,
Thomas

Lord, have mercy on Gabriel and his family!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thanks be to God! Gabriel is out of the hospital now, he is still struggling to see if his medication will help keep him out as they do further adjustments on it. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
