Sunday was his birthday. I managed to visit, and he got a bit agitated but was pleased to see me. I didn't stay too long as he wasn't really comfortable with having visitors, but I gave him his cards, cake that I made and a take away curry (his favourite) gave him a cuddle and a kiss and let him get on with it. he blew me a kiss when I was going. Monday when I phoned, he talked to me, and we had a bit of a chat. more of a two way thing, rather than him just responding to the things I said to him. Tuesday I rang again, and we talked for a lot longer, and he seems pleased to hear from me. he said he only feels okay when I'm talking to him. I phoned his family to get an update, and found out that he would be moved to the open ward today. which I would have thought they would have let me know right away. but good news. so today I visited on the open ward. saw him for a little bit, had another lovely cuddle, and managed about 15 minutes before I felt like he wanted us to go. this evening I phoned him again, and we had another chat. he told me that seeing me and talking to me keeps him going. he really does seem to be improving. I hope things carry on in this direction.

Hi Galena, This is good progress, did you read the replies of your last discussion? Also, be very careful about his family, it seems that something isn't right on their end... I'm getting a vibe from your situation that his family is more of the problem than anything. I hope he recovers from what the problem was or is... I wish he had access to talk and communicate with others... Just keep doing what you are doing I think that is the best thing that you can do, those long talks can be very rewarding and special. My wife thought that my Mom loved me more than any other person on the face of the Earth, she was so naive, so she went along with my mothers twisted plan to lie to prove that my wife loved me... I could see straight through the lies, after all I was lied about by a police officer and my rights were violated in the State court systems... I have a lot of experience with Un-Loving people... There can be no healing when hatred and lies rule the day... Good luck, Peace and Blessings, Sincerely, Gary
