            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Lee (North) County, Ty Rogers, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Schumacher and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (10 pages)

            The respondent, P.K., appeals the district court’s decision finding he continued to be seriously mentally impaired.  P.K. conceded that he had a mental illness.  P.K. asserts that he has sufficient judgment to make responsible decisions in regard to treatment.  He also asserts that the evidence does not show that if he were allowed to remain at liberty, he would be likely to inflict injury on himself or others.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the court’s decision is supported by substantial evidence and P.K. is seriously mentally impaired.
