H is going in for in-patient alcohol treatment

I was a little flabbergasted when H called me at work this afternoon to tell me that he wants to go in for treatment. I think it's great and I think he REALLY needs it, but I didn't see him actually following through with it. Hopefully this can help him in all other areas of his life too. He said they may call him in today or they may call him in as late as Thursday. It will probably be a 10-30 day treatment. However, that also means that there will be another month, in addition to the last 3 weeks, of him with no income since he has been skipping work and not giving me a reason. On top of all the other bills we now have a $3200 tax bill due.
