Another Letter From Dad

He got the address right on this one!

For The Blog: Recovery? 11/2/05

My feet and legs hurt like hell. They've got me up to 8 diuretic pills per day now and I'm pissing like a racehorse. But the swelling isn't going down. They ran a check on my liver and my enzymes are all fucked up, but I should return to normal function in a couple of weeks with no permanent damage - as long as I don't drink again.

The swollen feet and legs serve one useful purpose - they get me out of Group Recreation, so I can write instead of play volleyball or pitch horseshoes. Working in some free time around here isn't easy. I even have fucking homework at night.

What the hell. This place isn't supposed to be fun. It's supposed to save my life.

I hope it does.


Great to hear from you - we were starting to worry ;)
Good luck with that homework...

"It's supposed to save my life."

From your "pen" to my God's ears.

Great to hear you are at least showing some progress in your recovery, now when they let you go substitute a lot of "rare' meat for the booze and rebuild that liver. The hell with the animal rights nuts.
Get well soon and get back on the blog. Everyone else's ass is sucking wind with no direction. Need you to set them streight.
