Well, another Christmas has come and gone and I have to say this one was full of drug drama. I was entangled in it for less than 24 hours and have extricated myself (is that the right word? it sounds funny). Anyhow, Keven is in the hospital covered with infections all over his face, hands and body from his meth use, he's there to detox but they have him in isolation due to the severity of his condition. Lovely.
Ant is - well, I don't know. He WAS in the hospital (he didn't get arrested Christmas night, he ran and that's when he sprained his ankle - they kept him in the hospital for 24 hours). He called me crying and begging me to let him stay here since he couldn't walk, had no where to go and needed rest. I almost laughed, but just said "No." (oh, and he said "I guess I shouldn't have gone to try and help Keven". Nice excuse, make it sound like you were the hero rescuing my son who just happened to have a place for him to stay, money and DRUGS.)
Its amazing, but not surprising, how quickly addiction can take all the hard work a person has put into recovery and then flush it in the toilet after one use. Its also amazing how a handsome young man can look like a monster after one week of using.
Today I have some plans for things I enjoy doing (its my normal day off so I had a 4 day weekend!). And hopefully I will get to spend time with my friend Kathy. But before any of that, I'm going to catch up on blogs and see what's going on with you guys.
Peace, Hope and Love,
