So some of you may know that my mom had a stroke back in June of 08. Since then her mental health has not been so well. She has tried to commit suicide 5 times and because she used meth for her 2nd attempt, is when the stroke happen. She has been in the hospital since Wednesday because yet again totaling 5 she over dosed on pills. 54 of them to be exact. Although the pills that she keeps taking won't give her the outcome that she wants. After losing the love of my life to suicide via a gun, I refuse to be in that spot again. So I came incontact with a psychiatrist who valedated me and the feelings of our family my mom was transfered to an inpatient mental hospital on 24 hour survelance(sp) for the duration of her stay. We are not sure how long she will be there or if this will even work but its our last hope. This is taking a huge toal on our entire family extended included. She's about an hour from home so its not a long drive but one that will be made many times over the course of her stay. I don't ask a whole lot on this site but please if you can find even a few seconds just send up a thought, prayer or well wishes because that's all that is going to be holding all of us together until she gets home. I will do my best to keep you all updated on her condition and what the Dr's say. Please vote popular so we can get the support that my mom (Connie), and our entire family is going to need. Thank you.

So my mom is home now. She came home on Thursday. They have her on a new medication that seems to be helping. The scary thing is, is that she told my grammy today that she thinks they let her out to soon. How do you fix something like that? How can you fix something that is so broken and shattered but you cant find all the pieces? She's to stay in contact with a bi-polar specialist nearby us. Its going to be tough because she loses her train of thought very easily and most days during the week there is nobody home with her to help her do things. So its going to be a tough road but I pray to God its just a hill we need to climb and it'll be smooth sailing afterwards. I still please ask that you keep us all in your prayers and thoughts.
