But Maria will be entering the next phase of treatment this Monday and we now need another place to stay, which has a kitchen. Most importantly, we pray Maria continues to heal. Eating disorders are the most deadly mental illness! Scary!
Our family is still in San Diego, as this is the closest place that has an intensive outpatient pediatric facility for our daughters eating disorder. Her tube was just removed 2 days ago after having been in for almost 3 months!
Unfortunately we have not been able to get into the Ronald Mc Donald House or elsewhere, while we stay here for the next phase of treatment. This is a 5 day a week, 7 hour a day treatment that typically lasts 12 weeks. It is family based, so we all need to be here with Maria for the first few weeks at least. Then one parent will need to be here with Maria through the rest of the program.
If anyone has a place they can rent for a discounted price weekly or monthly, it would be a great help. We will be in the UCSD area of San Diego. We are still hoping to get into the Ronald McDonald home in the near future. Or any amount that anyone can give will help ease the burden of finding a place to rent during this time!
