Long Night

Last night is definitely qualifying as one of the most jacked-up nights in a while. My brother is in the hospital with some pretty serious complications to a wound. Thanks to diabetes he might lose the leg. My mom is pretty upset. It’s not as if Christmas is the happiest time of year at my families anyway. This year marks the 11th anniversary since my dad passed away on Christmas Day.

To make things worse, one of the kids who games with us in our group was threatening suicide in our bulletin boards. No one was goading him on, thank God. I wish I could have done more like contacted the authorities in his town or his parents but when all you have is an alias and a state it doesn’t do you much good. I haven’t seen him online since last night so hopefully he’s calmed down some.
