Well for those that have been following along, my fiance' is finally out of the hospital after 3 weeks. The ride home was so great! It was really exciting to see her face light up when we were driving the whole way home. I could see that she couldn't decide what she wanted to do when we got back into our neighborhood. So we dropped off her prescript
ion at the local pharmacy and went out to dinner with our best friends. She got a little overwhelmed, but she held it down pretty well. After dinner we went and picked up her prescript
ion, then went home. She was so happy to be home and be in a quiet stable environment. Our 2 cats immediatley met us at the door and greeted her with all kinds of kitty love. It was great! She took a nice hot bath and came down stairs and we sat on the couch and relaxed for about
an hour. After that she wanted to get caught up on her bank account and mail. She would have never fell asleep knowing that these things didn't get taken care of right away. Even though I had done it all except the past few days. So I helped her with all that, being that she is still dealing with allot of confusion. So after we got everything squared away, she took her meds and we went up to bed and talked till 1:00am. I held her all night in my arms. She really felt safe and secure. I just kept reasssuring her that her being BP isn't a bad thing, and that I am here to help with everything she wants help with. I told her over and over that she can easily live a normal life as long as she takes her meds, gets therapy, and do all the other much required things to track her BP. She knows that she has a great support team, and that we all educated ourselves about
BP the whole time she was in the hospital. I myself have read books and of course joined HEALING WELL.
. She was sent home having to take 1000mg depakote, 30mg zyprexa, and 1mg klonopin. The klonopin will eventually go. She already has appointments set up with the therapist and pdoc. As I left the house this morning her mother came over to stay so that she can drive her around to as my fiance' is saying " a much needed manicure and pedicure"! I just told her to take it easy and if she starts to feel overwhelmed to go home and chill out. So right now I am anxiously waiting to get off work so that I can go home and spend a nice relaxing weekend with her. And as always I will be logging on everyday.
