    DA asked to talk to me. Strange man. He decided to punt til 9am in the morning as he wants to talk to arresting officer. Court clerk said difficult child should be released today so I guess that wasn't supposed to happen.

    Problem is....difficult child is sober now. Insurance may not let him into inpatient. Rehab said one more day was pushing it. DA may ask rehab to come assess difficult child in jail which I tried to get done today. Frankly I don't think anyone has ever asked that here before.

    If insurance denies, difficult child will have to wait until he is released, hold on a few days to a week, and then use again or say he did. I asked rehab guy if that's what it will take. He said he didn't say that but I understood the system.

    Going to Alanon. Girl who told me where difficult child's car said her mom would be here. Then she texted me and asked if she could come too. Yes!!!! I need company.

    Going to a motel and then back to court in am. Whatever God wants.

    Just know I will fall apart when I get to motel. Exhausted.

    difficult child can stay in jail for months. Ok by me. The longer he stays, more likely he will recover.

    I'm home. difficult child in rehab. Likely 15 days inpatient.

    sit down for this co-pay was less than $100. But difficult child's benefits for rehab are gone.

    interesting day. Pooped. Post tomorrow but here are the basics.

    $1800 fines. 5 months suspended. 2 years probation. Court ordered rehab.

    either difficult child or I must go back in 3 weeks to prove he is in rehab.

    difficult child cooperative. Got tired at end and then a little controlling. He hadnt hardly eaten or slept so I understood yet was able to handle it well and he, for the most part, corrected himself when asked.

    Told him I hope he listened to the judge cause if not, he'd die from starvation if he had to serve those five months. Not kidding.

    Dont know what Id do without you all. Going to sleep 16 hours.

    Wonderful news. Court ordered rehab just after rehab benefits exhausted! You couldn't have asked for anything better. One day at a time. He is safe and warm.

    Sleep well!
