I told y’all about my friend from a year ago. For a couple months after this conversation and another one where he told me his sponsor was now his girlfriend (raises left eyebrow), several texts….I finally sent him a letter. Stating that he had failed and that he needed to remove my contact information from his phone, his address book and his life. I was done.
I have not heard from him in almost a year. It makes me sad and I miss him like my left arm. But it was his choice not mine. He knew the consequences. I have also found out his twin daughters do not talk to him anymore either.
I hope that bottle keeps him warm at night.
So I had been waiting all day yesterday, worried about getting a phone call from J. (See? I have lettered men, too Jad!!) I really doubted he would even ATTEMPT to contact the hospital and talk to his doc about his drinking.
I got a phone call at 7:26pm.
“I called. They will call me if they have a cancellation otherwise I go in on Wednesday.”
“Go in for what J?”
“For my knee.”
“For what J?”
“And for that other thing.”
“What other thing J?”
(silence from me)
(More silence from me)
I about cried.
He admitted it to me.
It’s a start.
J has two stunningly beautiful daughters. He doesn’t want to lose them.
Up to him now.
