Hello All: I have been sick for a couple of weeks and not been able to post a lot. I have had a letter from my son, who was finally sentenced a few weeks back. He was transferred on 8/9/2016 to RDC, where they hold you to evaluate you for transfer to a prison, and also perform medical testing to see if you have any communicable diseases. He said that all the guys that came with him have come and gone to a prison, he remains in a small cell, no a/c, and not able to perform any work related duties to pass the time due to a battery charge from 24 years ago that was a result of him and his wife fighting when they lived in florida, she hit him with a hammer and he fought back, she called the cops and he got arrested. Then she wrote to me and confessed all this, and he was released, however it is on his record. So, he is really feeling the heat literally and says he knows his dad hates him so he isnt writing to him and he feels that he will have nobody in this world to help him when he is out. I do understand this was written in a time of terrible depression. I don't know why he is kept in a small un air conditioned cell, in the heat we have had, but I can't do anything about it. Needless to say I cried when I read it, knowing that this will pass. I can't tell you how sick I am of drama and issues, having them all my life and it never ends. I was talking to my 83 year old mother last night and she was telling me about some stuff in the family with her brother which was very sad and how she realizes that there is just nothing that can be done in some cases. I for myself am just soul sick at having to accept this. I want him to be well, and not be in this awful place in his life. And since I cant change reality, it hurts. But, I am going about my business and nobody in my normal life would know that I go through all this, as I put my face on and smile. But at home and during times of terrible feelings and events, I cry into my pillow. That is all I can do. I do have hope that the future can be different. But I know that is not even mine to try to manage. Thanks for listening.
