'Excitement!"

The day has finally arrived!  We are so excited!  Jummy has an appointment too se the psychiatrist for evaluation at 1:30 pm today.  I can't believe it's finally here!  Also, there are 40 other inmates who are happy, as they will also see the psychiatrist.  This means that Jimmy will probably be moved to an "evaluation center" in Trenton.  He shoukd go there in around 2 weeks. Once there, I can go see him and bring his clothes with me.  I've been dreaming and thinking about it all night!..I will be able to hold him and hug and kiss him.  He shoukd stay there 35 days, and then will be moved into a half-way house.  Once in the half-way house, he will have weekend furloughs home.  Things should start moving fast, as he should have been there 5 months ago.  But one never jniws with the "systen," since the prison system in our country is now very backed up....and they incarcerate just about everyone for anything!......Sorry if I made lots of mistakes today.  My vision is very blurry today, and I can barely see the screen.  However, I did go see the retina specialist, my eye doctor , a couple of days ago, and the good news is that my eyes haven't gotten any worse!....And he has yet to take away my driver's license, as there are different levels of blindness, and I'm still in the lower levels.  Actually, my left eye seems stronger.  The doctor seems to think it is due to my reading so much, despite everything.  ...................Well talk to you later, and I'll keep you posted about what's happening.

I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU ! AND JIMMY ! I HOPE EVERYTHING GOES AS PLANNED AND ON TIME.   I HAVE A HARD TIME WITH  PATIENCE.  YOU ALREADY KNOW IT TAKES ALOT OF THAT WHEN YOU DEAL WITH WHAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH.GOSH, WHAT I WOULD GIVE FOR A FURLOGH !HA I'M REALLY SERIOUS. WE ARE WAITING FOR THE PAROLE BOARD TO MAKE A DECISION.  WE HAVE ALOT GOING FOR US, THEY GOT ALL NEW MEMBERS. RUMOR HAS IT, IT WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT RELEASING ANYONE TO KEEP THEM FROM BEING RELEASED. ?? THIS NEW BOARD IS SUPPOSE TO LOOK INTO THINGS BETTER AND WE HAVE JUST HAD SOME GOOD LUCK ON THINGS.  BUT, WE COULD GET A SET OFF.  WE WILL JUST DEAL WITH THAT WHEN IT HAPPENS.  I KNOW I WILL BE THERE FOR HIM HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES.  I'M EXCITED YOU GET TO TAKE JIMMY SOME CLOTHES !  YOU KNOW WE LEARN THAT IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE THAT COUNT.  IT'S JUST A WORLD THAT THE OUTSIDE WORLD DON'T UNDERSTAND AND I GAVE UP ON TRYING TO DO THAT.  WHAT WE FEEL AND WHAT WE GIVE OUR LOVE ONE AND JUST WHAT WE GO THROUGH TOGETHER IS A WONDERFUL FEELING TO ME.  FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
I SURE HOPE YOUR EYES GET TO DOING BETTER.   BE CAREFUL IF YOU DRIVE TO SEE JIMMY, I'LL BE THINKING ABOUT YOU AND IF I COULD I WOULD TAKE YOU.  YOU REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART WITH THE EXCITEMENT BECAUSE I KNOW HOW YOUR FEELING EVEN THOUGH I HAVEN'T GOT TO THAT YET WITH MY HUSBAND.  BUT, I DID GO THROUGH IT WITH MY BROTHER.  LET ME KNOW AS YOU PROGRESS.  THAT JUST PUTS MORE HOPE AND SOMETHING ME AND MY HUSBAND CAN SHARE THIS WEEKEND AND EVERY WEEKEND BECAUSE THAT'S ALL I'M ALLOWED TO SEE HIM. NO CALLS, JUST 2 HOUR CONTACT VISTS ON ONE DAY SAT OR SUN.  SOMETIMES WE HAVE GOT 3 OR 4 HOURS WHEN WE HAVE BEEN LUCKY.  AT FIRST THE VISITS WERE BY PHONE, THAT'S HARD! WHEN YOU CAN TOUCH THEM. NOW THAT TOUCH AND KISS HAS TO LAST ME THROUGH OUT THE WEEK AND I'M THANKFUL FOR IT ! THANKS FOR MAKING ME SMILE TODAY ! I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU BOTH AND IT'S
