It doesn't matter if the glass is half empty or half full... Be grateful you have a glass and there's something in it.

It's been a trying few days.  Jacob ran from the hospital and now is on restriction so I didn't get to see him today. I dropped off an MP 3 player for him and wasn't even able to give him a hug and tell him that I love him.  The time he had when he ran from the hospital he loved.  It is a frustrating situation to have a loved one sad about where they are and there is nothing you can do about it. He's gotten into the habit of running when he gets anxious.  I pointed that out to him and he acknowledged that it was true.  Maybe that can spur a change.  We had 2 emotional phone calls Sunday night.  Today on the phone he sounded better-more hopeful.   I think they can help if Jacob will stick it out.  Only time will tell.
