Gillian was concerned for her big brother so before she went to bed, she wanted to light a candle for him. We all thought good calm thoughts directed at him, and lit the candle.
Did it work? Did all the things he talked about with his therapist work? Did he just say ‘fuck the fear’ and succeed because he wanted to?
Dunno, but the phone didn’t ring. I woke up at 12:30, 1:45, 3:15, and 4:45 this morning, jumping out of sleep thinking I heard something. Checked to make sure there weren’t any messages. There was, but it was old. *PHEW*
As far as I can tell, he’s home free. If he can get through it last night, tonight will be a piece of cake. He was looking forward to making the morning announcements and again at dinner. All in all, I’m sure that this is going to be a liberating experience for him. Me and Fae? yeah, we’re a wreck after last night. Now that he’s made it through the first night, I’m not worried. Can’t wait to see him tomorrow.
Thanks for all the well wishes and support.
