Now that three months is up, you know the rules. You know how to keep going. It will never be as bad again because you now have the knowledge to survive. You have done it, Oscar! You have survived three months and can now count off the next three months, after which, all being well, you will change category and be allowed more treats, including contact visits. You have survived your birthday, Christmas and the New Year. The big celebrations of the year are over and you dealt with them in your own quiet and patient way. You are a survivor, Oscar, one fabulous survivor. As the band Survivor sang:
Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
(~ Eye of the Tiger; Survivor)
Things are going to get better for you, I truly believe that. We are all here for you, sending you our love and support any way we can. Together we can be strong, stay strong. We’re going nowhere Oscar, we’re standing right by your side, metaphorically.
