He called last night and talked a long time with Joe. Apparently he has decided that he is through with the pills. Of course we have heard this before but there is always hope. He called again later on last night to talk to me. We had a good conversation. He has the right mindset now, I can only hope and pray that he will stick with it.
He called me again this morning. His face is still really swollen but he is mending. He sounded really good. I said all the right things, things that have been said time and time again, he did appear to listen but then who knows. I think the fact that there might be someone who will file felony charges against him hit home hard. The police don't believe what the guy that will/may file the charges is saying but still. I know it would get my attention. Time will tell.
For now all we can do is hope and pray and continue to turn it over to God.
Thank you everyone for your wonderful and kind comments. They mean so much to me.
