Default Waiting for notification of the Governor's decision

My friend has been in 15 years in California. He's a Lifer and was found suitable for parole this past October. In Ca, there's a 5 month period of time after being found suitable for them to check out his living situation, his job opportunities, etc., before granting parole and passing the file along to the Gov. for a final review (because he has a murder charge). Well, they did indeed grant parole, and as of this past Tuesday, the Gov. is to have made a decision. There are three options for him to choose from...he can approve the board's decision, reverse their decision, or decline to review the file. We all know he's not gonna approve the thing! So, the next best thing is for him to decline to review the file...let the time run down...and let my friend out. We are realistic...we know the Gov. isn't known for letting dates go. But, we're hopeful!

It can take a week or so for the decision to reach him. I don't know how he's handling it so well....I'm freaking out! Every day the butterflies increase and I can hardly think of anything else.

He's worked so very hard for this...I know, lot's of us say that, but really....Ive never seen anyone work so hard to make sure there is nothing left of that old person he used to be.

I can't do an official countdown, because we don't know how many days are potentially left...I just had to share. My nerves are just about shot!

Thanks for reading....
