Make sure you put money on his books. OCASIONALLY they get lucky and hit commissary during the tour . . . deodorant, stamps, toothpaste and the like become desperate needs.

Mine spent about 6 weeks on the tour and didn't get ANY of his meds or to see a doc; he has two chronic (could become life-threatening without treatment) medical needs . . . I framed the letter from the ombudsman's office that said TDCJ messed up, but that didn't matter. He FINALLY got the last of his meds reinstated about 18 months after he went in.

Keep the faith . . .
