Lizze got back from Gavin’s appointment tonight and dropped a bombshell. Dr. P thinks he has childhood schizophrenia. She has been thinking it for quiet awhile and we have talked about it before. They also talk hospitalization for medical stabilization.
Once the kids are down we are going to talk more in depth but for now this is what we know.
Man, you guys are like a living encyclopedia of issues… I can't imagine how hard it must be to have them just keep piling up like that.
You just have to keep reminding yourself that as they get narrowed down, they an be dealt with accordingly and gets you one step closer to getting through it all.
It's been that way for a while with him. They suspected this for a while but he's really young and no one was anxious to diagnose someone of his age. But to quote Sheriff Woody (as I'm watching Toy Story 2 with Emmett John) "if the boot fits".
I really think we need to re-visit short term hospitalization for medication stabilization. He really needs to be monitored daily and medication adjusted until they figure out what's wrong.
