I met with Shannon's providers today and things are not getting worse but certainly not improving.

Hi (((Leo))),


I'm so sorry Shannon's not responding. I can't imagine how maddening this must be for you. I'm getting angry too and I'm not even part of this.


I'm curious, have you considered getting a second opinion? Under normal circumstances changing therapists could be a dangerous situation but if she's not responding to the people anyway then it might be worth exploring.


I tried to email you but

Leo,


I'm sorry to hear Shannon still isn't doing well. It must be so difficult for you. How heavily is she medicated? I know it sounds stupid, but I remember visiting my best friend in the hospital and she was so drugged she didn't know me. We've known each other since kindergarten. ((hugs))


I hope she can see her nephew. As a new aunt (once i'm married) there's nothing like little sweethearts running around to melt your heart.

Hi again,


I think the fact that even Rose felt there was a more appropriate facility says a lot. Perhaps it's worth at least inquiring.


I've been thinking of you and I hope you

**gentle hugs**
