BM on life support....lawyer meeting
I told you all that J had refused to let BM talk to the girls untill she was in a treatment program right? Well the very next morning at 2am we got a call from her mom. BM had taken a MASSIVE overdose of prescription pills and was in ICU on life support. Of course the excuse boyfriend gave was because we wouldn't let her talk to the girls. Her liver is shot. She deffinatly has Hep C. It's been confirmed by doctors.
We sympathized with the girls granny but at the same time stood firm that this had nothing to do with her not speaking to the girls. She didn't want to have to choose between her precious drugs and the girls and the guilt is what made her do it. We didn't apologize for our decision on the grounds that the contact was helping BM feel good about herself for fifteen minutes while destroying the kids for a week and a half. We let her know tht if BM pulled out of this our decision would not faulter...she WOULD be in a treatment porgram before any further contact.
BM is now stable and is being held in a Psych ward. She's been commited three days now. We don't know how long they can hold her. She called and spoke with J and told him they have her on lithium now. He would not let her speak to the girls and reminded her that these decisions have been totally hers and no one elses. Bottomline...we would not be guilted into exposing the girls to her in any way untill she has been in treatment. If she kills herself it would be nothing more to us than another one of her really bad decisions. He also told her if she planes to kill herself he DEFFINATLY isn't going to let them have contact. She seems to think the HepCis going to kill her anyway. Meanwhile she requested another application form to the House of Hope. We arn't holding our breath.
We don't know how this will affect her drug felony charge. It was for having prescription pills without a prescription with intent to sale...now she has almost DIED from prescription pills she didn't have a prescription for. Whether or not that will be a strike against in court....who knows.
How does this woman keep on ticking??? She has one lung thanks to a self inflicted gunshot wound. She has survived MULTIPLE near/overdoses. Now this and she has a bad liver to boot. This woman is running out of organs!!!!
J has a meeting with the lawyer I mentioned wednesday. Hopefully under the circumstances he'll take this on. It's going to be SUPER easy to get custody and supervised visits. I'm not even sure if you can drive on lithium. Just the fact that she needs lithium says alot against her.
Fingers crossed. This has got to end soon.
