Franke Called Already

"Hi Yondalla, I'm sorry about how I acted earlier."

"It's okay, Frankie. It's okay to be angry."

"Can you send my caligraphy things? They are in the little suitcase."


"There is the pad and the pens and the cards with the Old English letters and the Elvish."


"And can you find my other box of contacts, the ones for my right eye?"

"I can try. Do you know where they are?"

"No. But will you get them and can you find my glasses too? I don't know where they are."

"I'll look for them."

"I don't like the glasses because they won't stay on my nose. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get your nose frozen so that your glasses would stay?"

"You come up with the craziest ideas."

"Yeah. And my oracle cards, do you know where those are? And the scarf you found this morning and my book on druids, can you find all those things?"

"I think I can. You know the guy who got you this morning has to come back for your meds, should I just give it all to him?"

"Yeah. Thank you. I'm really sorry for this morning. And thank you."

"It's okay. I love you, Frankie." Very short pause before I jump back in, "So you're welcome."

"Okay. Thank you Yondalla. Bye."

"Goodbye Frankie."


  1. I'm glad he cooled down and had a chance to call. I'd be doing a lot more than flipping the bird and yelling if I were in his situation, you know?

  2. With all my heart and soul, I wish things like what happened today didn't happen. That Frankie wasn't such a wounded child, that your heart wasn't hurt. It just amazes me that there are people like you willing to do it again and again. Hope you find a nap or two...

  3. I'm glad he called after calming down. Will he be able to have any of those things where he is?

  4. The glasses (if I can find them) and contacts he will be able to have, though when they are not on him will probably be locked up.

    The notebooks and pens, which are felt-tipped, will marked as his and will be allowed to him as his counselor feels is appropriate.

    As for the druid stuff (book, cards, scarf) that they may not let him have at all. If they recognize it as part of his religious beliefs they will put them with the pads and pens. If they regard it as part of the fantasy world he wants to slide into, they won't take them from me this evening.

  5. I'm glad he called and is settling down.

    I am sorry, for all of you, that you had to go through this experience.

    Of course the best and worst part of this is that we won't get to hear any more updates on how he is doing.

    That's the sad part, isn't it? Once a foster kid leaves your house, you don't get any more updates, as if they had never lived there in the first place. But of course the kid was there, and leaves an indelible mark on your mind and heart.

    Just because the state says you should stop thinking about someone doesn't mean that you will.

  6. Poor Frankie. Poor Yondalla. Poor bio boys. Poor Hubby.

    What a tough situation. Hope he stays in touch, for ya'lls sake as well as his own.

  7. I'm so glad he calmed down enough to call.

    And that you can relax (and sleep!) soon.

  8. take to your bed for awhile you've earned it! hopefully he will be on the road to stable soon and his mind will calm down and give him some peace. you've done all you can for him, now it's time to take of you!
