First, thank you everyone who contributed
I have an update as to what’s happening
We have now found out the condition to which she arrived from the mental institution and it was lithium toxicity. That means the institution overdosed her to a toxic state. She had 1.6 ml lithium in her blood and 1.5 ml is the level for lithium toxicity
She has no meds currently in her system and she is still in this state. It has improved but only slightly. Today she has some hand and leg movement which is new but still no talking and eyes only barely open but no focus.
The hospital says that it is a medical condition now and something somewhere is causing her to be in this state like a stroke or blood clot for example
They had done 2 cat scans and showed no stroke previously, The hospital is calling it a “puzzle” and they will be keeping her from r the time being and she won’t be sent back to an institution right until it’s medicslly figured out and she can “walk out” of there.
I’m kind of reeling and don’t know what to do think. It’s very clear the institution is at fault and that needs to be addressed, But my first priority is her well being and how to best get her out of this state if it’s even possible.
She is being feed via tube, she has IV, she breathes in her own, she has slowly regained some functions so she is not in a coma. She has opened her eyes but there is no talking, no focus, etc. This seemingly happened Friday night as far as we know at the Institution and she was brought to the hospital and has been in this state since then for 4 days,
Any relevant experience, thoughts, insights are appreciated.
