Her grandmother unfortunately had passed away recently and then the patient had developed erratic behavior. She had lived with her parents and son, but parents removed son from the home, secondary to the patient's erratic behavior. Recently, she was picked up by Kent Police Department "leaping on Highway 99."

We will followup with the patient should any new medical issues arise.
