    He deserves and needs all the help they can provide.

    I'm so, so, sorry he's going through this, and you with him.

    Sending both of you much love, comfort, and strength.

        will listen to? A brother or sister, a best friend, that can help convince him to go?

        Sometimes, we're too easy to say "no" to.

              and thank you for thinking of me.  I already told him...if the pain starts up severely again today... he will go to the hospital.   Surely they can do something.  He went by ambulance to the local one last week and was released with a prescription to go to the VA....60 miles away.....I have been all over the VA in Gainesville.  I got a social worker in the mix now rom about 30 miles away.
              I plan on calling her today.  

              Thank you for thinking of me this AM.
              I took my daighter to school and stopped by the store and found so many people wanting to tell a story.  They don't want to be filmed but they want to talk.  I think something is going to happen here with folks opening up.  A man told me aboutwhere 50 tents were hidden and where some go to the Dollar General to wash in the bathrooms.   I will be checking this story out as soon as I get Vet settled.

                email addresses and phone numbers.

                It sounds like you got very little sleep last night. Hope you can find time for a nap today. Lack of sleep only makes dealing with what's going on even worse.

                Looking forward to hearing what you find out about the poor folks living in their tents. If they don't want to be filmed, could you do an audio recording? Just tape them talking?

                Be careful please.
