husband finally took the phone this a.m. around 6:30. Luckily, difficult child got his medications first. We probably won't see him for a day or two. He tried to argue that the credit card #s he stole were between "me and Mom." Uh-huh. When he realized he couldn't negotiate with-husband--not even one last text msg to his girlfriend--he blew up with-the F-bombs. husband got it in the face like I usually do. I think that, because we had a few trial runs with-difficult child "running away," I'm not quite as worried this time. He tends to come back when he needs something. And he always needs something.
