Current Status Friday, December 8, 6:30am: Lee & I have been up for over 24 hours now. No, we have not taken up occupations as truck drivers or real doctors, but we are now in the ICU at UNC. Our morning started off early Thursday with Lee rising for work & me getting up with Jack.
Jack has not bathed in several days. On Thursday evening, Lee was asking Jack to bathe when Jack lost it. I was at dance practice with Ava when Coleman called asking me to get home fast, Jack was trying to fight. As stated in the previous blog, Jack has violent rages. These rages aren’t your small outbursts, think about a person going crazy due to a drug withdrawal. Jack is 5’8, all skin & bones, however, he is strong as an ox.
After getting a few strong neighbor men over to help restrain Jack, EMT’s & the police were dispatched. Jack was taken to our local ER during the rage, even had 2 grand mal seizures. After various meds, he finally calmed down 4 hours later was then transferred to our current status in the ICU.
In the next few days our family will have to make decisions no parent should ever be forced to do. Please be in prayer with us & Jack’s medical team to help us all make the best decisions possible.
