good vibes to all of you.
g-girl...alll my vibe's (and i'll have the clients here -alina lodge, blairstown nj - do so also) out to yours......coming to Pa.? where? i'm in the poconos n.e.Pa.
Thanks guys. We will be making our 4 mo. visit to PA. on Aug 13, and will find out whats in store for Miles. I so appreciate the good wishes, it means alot.
Chris-- positive thoughts to your friend Carol. Just having ONE person such as you is so important to her recovery. keep posting.
Tigerlilly-- I have seen the downside of addiction with someone EXTREMELY close to me, but please know this too, Ive seen the upside of recovery as well. It seemed hopeless, but its all in the timing. I hope most that your nephew is READY. Once he is ready ( and the OD could be the begininng) really ready...wonderous things can happen. My person found recovery only in losing what he held dearest ( us). My person happens to be my husband. Fast forward to now. Seven years clean, and living a happy, healthy, full life--the family in tact. With the right support, it CAN happen. My prayers to him that he will find his path back to health. Gratefully, he has you! Keep posting, and thank you for your kind words. I will post about Miles when we return.
Best to all-----Garciagirl.
god bless you
keeping you in my prayers dont be afraid tobe scared in humane nature to have feelings
I wish your Miles all the best, and am crossing my fingers real hard that he will not have to suffer surgery.
Some good energy for you too, so that you can be strong for him. He is lucky that he chose someone so caring to be his mother.
Also thank you for bringing the matter of infant scoliosis to our attention. You are SOOO right that is something that all new parents need to insist that infants are tested for.
Right before the sun woke me up this morning by beaming right into my face, I was dreaming that my grandma had died. Was no freaky thing in itself to dream that, as she is old, had suffered a stroke, and had given up living. Stopped eating last week, so seems that she had decided it is her time.
Opened my e mail box to find two mails from my mother called "Marie" (is my step-grandma so had always called her that, even though I knew her since I was 10). Before I even opened the mails, I knew what my mother was writing to me.
THEN had another mail from my sister, telling me that our nephew overdosed last night. Is thankfully alive, but barely. Is on his way to rehab, once he recovers.
So I am asking for good and peaceful thoughts, for both of these people on their voyage that is ahead of them. That Marie has a peaceful trip into whatever happens next, better that she is free of suffering; and that Josh will use his visit to rehab effectively, and get on with a heroin-free life.
and hoping things go well with your loved ones.
i'm so glad positive words are being spread. keep me updated on your son. take care - chris
Hadnt posted about this--but I try to recruit prayer ( dont care who ya pray to!) for my 2 year old Miles. Wont get too lengthy, but he has infant scoliosis ( a curved spine) and wears a body brace. Altho we've had a year of this under our belts..were prepping for his next check on the progress ( if any). We dont get new info other than our four month visits...so its wretching from one appt to the other. Send positive thoughts and good chee our way, if ya can... that the suggested surgery does not have to be.
I also want to insist that all parents/grandparents/Aunts etc...PLEASE make sure that the infant toddler in your life is examined for this at checkups. Youd be surprised how often this is NOT done for babies...a quick check can detect this!
Chris---my heart goes out to you and I pray for your friend.
