Thanks, all. The corner's been turned. There are still plenty of issues to work through, but the overall situation is orders of magnitude improved.

Continued prayers are greatly appreciated. Their rollercoaster has highs and lows and inversions. I've reached the point of submitting it all to God (where I should've been all along, of course), but that doesn't make the hurt any less.

Never have stopped, Skip. I've seen this struggle with close friends and family and truly believe there is a demon in alcohol. Some skate by and never succumb, some, like me, only occasionally struggle, and some have to fight every minute against the possession.

Praying for each and every one involved. I won't let anyone know what a good heart you have, I promise.

Thanks for the continued prayers, all. The person involved is finally getting the dedicated help they need: they checked into an inpatient rehab program Thursday morning.
