Good news keeps coming!

Well I got a letter from my brother the other day.. Also talked to my mom and she said the facility he is doing rehab at, is wanting to help send my brother to school.. And guess what he wants to go to school for.. Journalism. I just hope things continue to follow through and that he can hopefully take his rough past, write about it, and , maybe help someone else... Until next time... Hope everyone is doing ok with their own struggles.. Even keep your chins up.. You not alone!

staying on a good path

Good morning everyone! Got another letter from my brother the other day.. I also got to talk to him on the phone for a few minutes.. He sounds great and seems to be doing very well. Seems they've got his medications under control and he's happy with that.. The only thing that seems to be an issue now is his blood pressure.. Its running a little high... 24 years old with hypertension and is on 3 blood pressure medications... One of the effects that being a chronic alcohol has on the body unfortunately... Continuing to keep my fingers crossed that things stay on this good path. For right now, i have seen the stress of my family lift dramatically. We don't have to worry right now... Its nice to have this feeling.. I just hope it stays this way.
