light a candle, whatever your belief system allows.

Chloe, my 17 year old daughter overdosed late Tuesday night and was not found by us until after 6 am Wednesday morning.

She is in the ICU, unresponsive and the outlook is not good. At this point they are saying that if she survives she may be facing permanent brain damage. An EEG is in the works but they are trying to give her time to see if she comes out of this within the next 48 hours.

She was, in the doctor's words in a profound coma this morning. As of now, she is breathing on her own and we are hopeful she will remain doing so.

Due to the amount of pills and types she took she is on dilatin to prevent further seizures. They are sedating her to keep the muscle spasms from the meds she took at a minumum. Her pupils are still fixed and dilated, she makes a lot of movement and vocal noises but it is a reaction to the meds and not progress. There is no response to stimuli, painful or otherwise.

We had no idea this was coming, no idea she was struggling. It just hit out of the blue.

Please, please, in light of our families history with a suicide loss and previous attempts with two other children keep this a support thread only. I do not want anyone bringing up past issues, judging us or our family. I just need support right now.

I am a mama sitting in a waiting room, I cannot stay in the room with my baby and I do not know if she will make it through the night. I am asking for healing thoughts for her, not condemnation. I've had enough of that from my MIL today.

Thank you...

Janis

I am so sorry. I had a cousin who was 19 when she ODed. We miss her and love her and I could never imagine judgement with her or anyone else. It's something they did, not who they are. Holding your hand mama
