Breaking Point

I think we are reaching the breaking point with Gavin. I don’t know that there is any way to stabilize the rest of the family with him here in the condition he is in. I’m not saying that it’s his fault as I clearly know it’s not but there is an element of choice in much of what he does.

I think the unpleasant truth is that he has no ability left for higher functioning. I think he is functioning on the most basic level and for him that’s about 3 years old. He is basically a giant 3 year old right now. The problem is that he is rocking the boat way to much and we are taking on more water then we can pump out. Our family, our “ship” is sinking. There is no bright side to this. I really think we are going to have to send Gavin to Akron Children’s Hospital for stabilization. This time they would have to focus on his emotional state as he is medically stable now.

I don’t know what else to do. Doing nothing is no longer an option. The kids as well as ourselves can’t take anymore. Gavin needs something that we don’t have. We need to find out who does and get him there. He deserves to find some peace and right now he has none. I don’t see him finding any the way things are going.
