I've posted this before, in another area, but still not getting phone list approved. It's only been 8 days, but the visiting list was approved the day after my l/0 arrived. Thankfully, he is an outgoing & likeable person and another guy who had been there a while had his wife call me to let me know that the visitor list was approved so I was able to go see him the next day. So my advice is, call up and ask if the visitor list is approved a day or two after they transfer, because apparently that process is pretty quick right now. I just wish the phone list would catch up!
He's home!

The good news is that it is straight down 57 from Chicago. If you were to take the Greyhound down, there is a crappy little hotel which also serves as the Greyhound stop in Marion. If anybody ever wants to use that option and coordinate a ride up with me from Marion, just let me know by sending a message.

I don't know about handicapped shower stalls, I can ask my hubby when he calls at noon. They alternate long/short days, 8:00 - 9:15 & 6:15 - 7:30 on short days and 12:00 - 2:15 & 7:45 - 9:15(30) on long days.
