Update

I am very, very tired. Didn't get to bed until after one last night and up again by seven to get Little Man off to school. I showered and went to the hospital to see how JJ was doing. He as awake, thank goodness and pretty lucid. He is still have some residual effects from the seizure, but overall not doing too bad. He is obviously in big trouble from being caught drunk, but we don't have to deal with that for a while. Because he is medically stable and not in the hospital anymore, I am not going to postpone my trip to visit Doolittleville. I guess I would feel a bit differently if it were purely medical, but because it is also him being a stupid teen, I don't want to give him the idea he can act up and make us just change our lives for him.
Thank you, thank you for your kind words. You have no idea how much better they made me feel. Less alone, less stupid, less of feeling like a bad parent. I needed all of it. Tonight, I am going to bed early! I need to be well rested for my teetotally kind of Bad Fun with Liza!

I think you're totally right NOT to postpone your trip. It would be the wrong message, you're right. Enjoy yourself and try not to think to much about it all.

I'm glad you're still going. Sounds like you could use the time away. Have a fun trip!

You definitely more than deserve a little "me time". Enjoy.
