Re: Re:[IP] Sending son to dad's for court ordered visitation



When Jake went to see his dad, I wrote down EVERYTHING, even what he should
eat and how much.  Still he came home with high numbers in his meter, but he
lived through it.  I just don't want to have to worry if he has to spend the
whole 3 month summer vacation with his dad.  It's just too risky.
