Thank you so much for your care & support & kind words.

Spoke with my son today (also with his nurse).

He sounded more like himself - even a bit of humour when I asked him, "so how is the food? regular hospital food?"
he said, "no not quite!"
& I said, "you mean not even that good?!"
& he chuckled & said, "no not quite!!"

He's still in Emerg 'cuz there are no regular-room beds yet. I said it mustn't be great still being just curtained off & that they're going to be putting him in a real room & he seemed pleased, surprised & relieved. I told him that would happen as soon as a bed became available - probably within 2 days.

Then later, the doctor phoned me. My son signed whatever papers that allow them to talk with me. The doctor said he's certified now, which means he can't leave. So THAT is good.

They've put him on Paxil & Risperdone. She said she expects he'll be there for a good while.

Just spoke with his GF, who is dismayed that he's on Paxil. She said she was on it & also his friend was & that it changes the person who you are....changes how you think.?? Might go on meds board to get input on that.

My big thing for now is that he's safe.

Thx for the support.

Kath
