You should know by tonight where he will be. At least R&C is over the worst part. 

Sorry, was out in the sun and didn't see the part about Taylorville.  Glad he was sent there and that soon you can go visit... that first visit is the best, when you can hug him again!!

So glad that first part is over for him and the family trauma. While it will never be great, it will be much better now!

trama, just for laughs, when I first saw the picture of my son in that yellow jumpsuit I called him a big banana.  He had to wear that for awhile on our first visits cuz he did not have his normal attire yet.  So I laughed at him the first time I saw him, after I hugged the you know what out of him. He still has to wear it every month when he goes to the hospital.

lol StressedMom

Today, we got to visit.  I just played dumb and said "someone told me we (his Dad and I) could get a one-time "free" visit.  He was sooooo surprized cause he's only been there since Friday.  We got to visit for 3.5 hours!  It was wonderful being able to hug him.

Glad you got the visit and your first hug, it was good wasn't it?  That first one is the best!!

Hope they get his list approved quickly so you can go back often.  Do you feel a little more relaxed now?

Yes, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me.

The CO's were all very nice and polite.  Our son was quite relaxed and we played cards and I fed him....a lot!

Thanks everyone!

So very happy for you Trauma! The older I get, the more I come to realize, and understand, that a mothers "Worry" never stops! I'm sure you had a more restful nights sleep after seeing him with your own eyes!
