Day 865 - Oct 11, 2010

Not too much happened today. Kevin wasn't up to going to therapy again today, which does concern me a bit. He did feel better later in the afternoon though so we went for a long walk outside to make up for it.

Breezy and I went to a movie this evening while Johnny was here with Kevin. It was nice getting out for a while and I wanted to try to spend time with Breezy before Kevin goes into the hospital.

I know my posts have been a little...I don't know...disjointed or unfocused or something. Even I can tell my thought process is off, but fighting the VA on top of taking care of Kevin is taking its toll on me. I won't give up - even though that's what they want me to do - because I would never give up fighting for my son's rights or dignity or whatever they are trying to strip at whatever time. It is exhausting though and it makes me wonder how vets that are wounded or ill that don't have a family member to fight for them do this? It's just such a sad thing.

And I don't know if anyone is interested, but here is an article I found showing other people's problems with the fiduciary folks:

Sure is eye opening, huh?

And tomorrow is THE day. Kevin is being admitted tomorrow afternoon for detox. I sure wish I knew what this is going to be like. I am purposely not saying anything to Kevin because I don't want to instill fear in him. Maybe this will be easy, but I just can't imagine that being so.

And at this point I don't plan to stay overnight, but we'll see how it goes. I didn't get the audit done because I need one bank statement and the banks were closed today so I have to come home at least one night and try to get it done.

Anyway, wish us luck - Kevin mostly. I have this horrible feeling we are going to need it...

Hang in there Les. I know this is hard, but you will make it thru just like everything else. You both are in my thoughts and prayers thru this next "step".

I'll be praying for Kevin this week that God will be especially close to him and give him strength and courage as he goes through detox.

Good luck with the rest of the audit. Let's hope this is the last one you have to do for a long time!

I'll be thinking of you both tomorrow and holding you in my prayers. Take care.
