Many hugs back to all of you for your kind words and support.
The facility where my brother lives calls my sister when my brother acts up just to keep her informed. Yesterday I learned that he tried to escape again last Friday; plus he'd been concerned that the food was poisoned so they gave him first dibs on the next meal, to take anything he wanted. Since he didn't fool them that way, now he's complaining about his teeth and wants all his food pureed. Basically, he's acting like a 3 yr old having one heck of a tantrum. They're doing everything they can to keep him there and so far it's working. The up side to it all is that he was definitely overweight, so looks like he'll lose a few lbs. Hopefully, before the end of the year, he'll get settled and calm down so that family can visit. We are determined to stay strong and let God do what needs to be done.
I see the attorney in a few hours. My next decision is when to move out. A lot depends on how he reacts to my getting the process going. I don't trust his moods any more. No matter what I know I'll be fine.
