So glad that you heard from him, and it's understandable that you're having these nightmares. As long as the lines of communication remain open, I'm sure you'll feel a tiny bit less anxious.
Thanx for sharing those...

At least he gave you a time to be waiting so you won't miss this call.
Hugs, R.C.

My daughters are thinking about him alot. They have both had huge crushes on him every since I put him on the background of the computer in his pow wow costume, with his long hair...he is such a handsome young man!

I never know what to say when you talk about your son because I have never been even close to your situtation and everything that I have tried to say has always sounded emtpy.  Or I try to type something that would make you laugh which would just come out sounding lame.  So, for the longest time I said nothing and then I remembered a quote, I can't find it now, saying something about how it is better to say the wrong thing then nothing at all.  I get alerts when you have a new entry and I always look forward to reading your journal.  I just have no idea what to say to make it better or easier.
