View Full Version : Self surrender July 22 Bryan Texas

07-20-2004, 06:35 AM
I will be surrendering to Bryan on Thursday. It is a 9 hour dirive from my home, so my husband and I will be leaving home on Wednesday morning and spend the night near Bryan and he will let me out on Thurs at Bryan. I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for the information that I have received here on PTO. I did not post a whole lot but constanly came to the site to get support from all of you that do post. I am hoping to meet Jewela (Julia)who self surrendered on July 15 there. She and I pm'd quite a bit. I know that 5 months is not quite as long as some of your loved ones have; but the unkown scares me somewhat. I am just anxious to get this over with and be able to go on with my life. I would love to hear how things are going on PTO while I am gone. Thanks again.

It seems like yesterday that I dropped my daughter off for a 5 month tour of duty. She is already past her one-half mark. The time will pass quickly if you stay busy and keep a positive attitude. I will certainly be thinking of you Thursday. You will be back here sharing information much quicker than you think!! Take good care of you.

Good luck Patsy. I have a friend who went to Bryan and she spoke highly of it. Well, not sure highly is the correct word lol, but she didn't have any bad experiences. It wasn't near what she was afraid it would be like. Take care!

It has been great having you here on PTO....and we all will be here when you come back to see us on the other side of this bridge! We have another member who just found out she is going to Bryan you think you could arrange a "PTO Party" for us...and send us the details? We'd love to post it...even pictures if you will! That would be a first...3 of our own from the other side!

Stand tall...and walk proud! Your a beautiful person who has hit a bump in the road! You will be missed...but never forgotten! You'll hear from your family at PTO!
