Good News! I finally hit the right time to call and connected with Sara 🙂
She is doing okay, not feeling great but still pushing on. She told me that she was having a hard time with the restrictions and I couldn’t blame her when I heard, they took away her lap top, phone, Nook and knitting. I guess they want patients to have no distractions other than … healing? (I’m not sure I agree with that term but I couldn’t think of what to call it otherwise).
The usual issues with things like food she can eat are getting sorted out. She said her psychiatrist was okay and didn’t seem to be the type to throw meds at every patient, which is great.
Overall, she sounded sad but strong. She’s sticking it out to see how much they can help her, trying not to form opinions on anything just yet…only two days into treatment.
The phone, of course, it a hot commodity in her ward so I told her I’d give her a call next week (mon/tues). I’ll update you guys then.
All the best!
