I'm on my way in a few minutes to see my son at his new rehab. He was released from jail this morning and I wanted to share my joy with you all!

I'm so happy and hopeful both for myself and for him. I'll be bringing him his medicines and some clothes, plus meet some of the staff.

Today, I'm smiling and grateful.
Thanks to all my friends here for all the ESH this past year I have been at SR. I hope this will be my son's time to shine.

My wish for you and your son is that a sense of peace will be with you both and a sense of security in the knowledge that you have friends here.......many here have walked the walk that you are embarking on. My son is presently in rehab and has been since October. He will complete the program in April.....I pray for strength each and every day and I also have learned to be thankful for each day of sobriety my son experiences. That in itself is a wonderful gift. I wish this gift for your son too.hugs, dixie

Thanks for all the support.
On my way home he called on someone's cell and was very upset about them not letting him have access to his insulin. He was ready to leave and go to his old halfway house, so I tried to calm him down and told him to wait and call us when I got home. In jail the healthcare was horrible..the wrong meds and wrong schedules etc. He has been looking forward to being able to get things under better control.

He never called. My recovery has gone so much easier while he was in jail where were no major surprises or events where I had to detach, stop enabling etc... I wasn't expecting my first 'test' on the way home from seeing him on his first day out. Ugh.

Letting go about all the other issues that come up..I can do okay, but this one is a hard decision to make.

So I want to call but have not...I'm having all kinds of emotions right now and it's like diving back into a cold pool where I haven't been swimming for 10 months.

Please pray for things to work out as they should and for each and all of us to be onboard with that. I don't need anymore stress right now.

Thanks for reading.

I'm glad he is out and hope that things settle in quickly and he adapts. I understand what you are saying...recovery is much easier when there is no drama. You are all in my prayers.

This is the very thing I am hoping happens with my son. HE enters rehab in May.
