My feeling is that I would keep texting him, tell him you love him and hope he's well, and wait for him to be ready to get back in touch. 

 

I'm so sorry that's happening.  It must be terribly difficult.   {hugs}

Give him a bit of space and let him know you love him.  My brother also left my mom to move in with our dad and doesn't speak to her.  I don't believe he does it out of spite (he loves her) but he wanted to get to know our dad and find/develop himself.  Your son will come around, I'm sure.  hug.gif
