I'm so sorry Tex! I can't even imagine going through what you are. It had to be one agonizing night. So any word on if they caught the lil creep yet? How's your son doing today? Prayers are with you all.

I'm very sooty to hear about your ordeal, but glad your boy was not more badly injured by that little miscreant!

I don't know what I'd do in your shoes, but it would probably land me in jail! The better alternative would be to do everything possible to be sure that the little creep ends up behind bars. He should be arrested and charged with attempted murder.

I never understand how people can stab someone or beat them with a baseball bat in the head and it NOT be attempted murder. They seem to be booked for aggravated assault of something of the sort.

I'm so sorry for you, Tex. I had to show up at Johns Hopkins because my jock (alone) was attacked by skinheads with chains and bats. His dried bloody clothes were literally standing in the corner. His head was stitched together and they had to put a plate in his forehead.

They never arrested anyone.

Texas,
I'm so sorry about this. I can only imagine your shock and unhappiness. We as parents, turn ourselves inside out,keeping our kids from harm, then they are adults and we have to stand by and watch as they expierence the good and bad of life. Sometimes it brings such joy, then awful unbearable pain. Being a parent is the hardest, yet most rewarding job in the world. This young man who hurt your son, is probably without a mom or dad who cares where he is and what he is doing. Your boy on the other hand is loved and cared for..Hopefully the young man who hurt yours will pay for what he's done and you and your family can rest easy. I hope you know you've got lots of good thoughts and some of many prayers coming your way today and until this is over..Hang in there Mom, I know I don't have to say go hug your son, you've already done that. I'm here if you need me.

Thanks everybody.
He's pretty sore this morning. He's having trouble bending and he's walking really slow, but, HE'S ALIVE!! I will never forget that 45 minutes of terror from when I was told he was stabbed and getting to the hospital to see him for myself. I've got him to where he'll stay here tonight. I'm taking him to check on his dog and then come back. I just want to be mommy right now and get him better. He's letting me a little bit, but, not too much, lol. Thanks again for your thoughts!!

Thinking of you TG....cannot imagine how terrifying this ordeal was for you both. Good that he is safe in his mum's care, only place to be right now.

Take care

Lyn

I would LOVE to have Buddy here, unfortunately, my 5 dogs would too, to eat.
He won't stay here. He's determined to go home. One of his other friends is staying with him to help him out at least.

Amber, a friend of his stayed at his house his last night for him. He found this out today. We're glad of it too.
