Thank you all, SO much!!!
He made it just fine. He was a little late getting there and had my stomach in knots and shaking, but, I'm okay now!! I will miss him dearly, but, I know it's for a good reason that he went.
And VB, no, I didn't sleep very much last night and went to work so sick to my stomach that I thought I was going to barf a few times. Once I got busy with work, I did better until it was time for him to call. I didn't get to talk long, the cell phone kept cutting out. I'm just happy he made it okay. That was my biggest worry.
Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers. It helps so much to be able to talk to all of you!!

yup, and make him feel guilty if he skips a week. my 'rents still require a call weekly, even after 20 years after i'd moved out. start this practice right away, and never stray from the course.

if i go past 2 weeks, my mom and dad act physically ill, and blame it on worrying about me. the last thing i want is to hear that if i've missed a call.

no, my parents aren't jewish ny'ers, but they might as well be.

I haven't been on in a while TG - I am glad to hear everything went well. I agree, keep active on the phone. I call my mom everyday and I have been out of the house for a looooong time!

When the chicks leave the nest it is hard, but it is also the time when they come to appreciate you the most--when they understand best what you have done to provide for them in their childhood, even if they didn't see it at the time.

Hang in there, TexasGirl, and use the phone at least once a week. And in a few months, or maybe a year or two, you will have a conversation with DS that begins something like, "Gee, Mom, thank you for being such a good parent."

(This speech was delivered to me in a tiny whisper--but I did hear it!)

Good luck!
