Darn it KC as if things weren't bad enough. My money is riding on you both making it. I found that you do get used to being restricted physically and while you never have a choice it does become the new normal and you have to accept it.
Any chance that the state can be held responsible for letting the guy off with a monitor when they knew he was a dangerous felon?
Im very sorry to hear about the cancer and your son. It sounds like your son was shot just out of cruelty. There are a lot of viscious animals out there. I hope you guys catch a break and also that they find the shooter.
