making an exit plan
He's planning to go,....agrees to leave on Sunday. We're making flight arrangements. Even though I didn't say anything about it,...he said that he planned to be away from here for a long time....that's good. Meanwhile, the attorney's office called and said that he now doesn't even have to be there tomorrow morning for a pretrial hearing....that the officer wasn't available (good) and that a continuance will be issued....for at least 30 days, 'til D can come back from treatment for a trial. I'm hoping it will be continued even longer, but am not going to worry about that now. I feel very grateful that he's going and planning to work on his recovery. One step at a time....one day at a time. This really feels like a Christmas gift to me...even though I hate that he'll be gone for Christmas,...the 2nd one he's missed because of being in treatment,...3 yrs ago, he was also gone. I want our son back ,...not this cocaine addict who is miserable and insensitive to others, yet can't stop himself. He told me ...."it's like I don't even like to do cocaine...but I have to do it." "Every day I wake up and pledge that I won't....but it doesn't work" Praise God that he's getting out of here.
