Psychiatric issues and God's provision

Our son has had increasing difficulty with delusional thinking and paranoia.  Over the past few weeks, he has been perseverating on ideas that have made it difficult for him to function day to day.  Monday of this week, all the delusions, hallucinations, and paranoia exploded and we had to admit Alan to a psychiatric unit at our local  hospital.

Of course, God had already made a way for us even before we got to this point.  We were able to admit Alan to the best behavioral unit in this part of the state, and the doctor who is working with him is familiar with Huntington's disease.  What a blessing!!

The hospitalization was an option that we had discussed before, but the various docs had been reluctant to pursue this course.  The need for admission was a blessing in disguise, since now we can get all his medications adjusted so that he is taking what he needs to take in order for him to be able to function day to day.

I feel hopeful that these next few weeks will give all of us some much needed encouragement, and that Alan will be able to feel more peace and calm in his mind.

We have found in all the years parenting our special young man that God makes a way before we know we need a way.  He has always ordered our steps.  We are grateful for His guidance and watchful presence in our lives.
