Update on DS

Friday, May 03, 2013

Good Morning: Command is concerned and has given DS an escort to take him through this process of clearing. He should have been given bed rest but DS wanted to stay on the clearing process schedule. From what I gather, it will take 2 weeks to process out. He still has some leave time that he wants to take. Army is not allowing him to take it all. They want to buy the rest. DS is still going to lose about 9 days. To my DS- this is money. I hope the lawyer will help with all this stuff. DH sent a very well-written email to lawyer and it was read b/c it had an acknowledgement. We just have not gotten a phone call. DS is coming home this weekend. He can relax better. DH & DS is going to update all the paperwork for VA which the lawyer will need. DS needs to eat a better diet to help get his body strong again. He has an ulcer and a severely sensitive stomach lining. GF goes back to work Monday. Baby goes to day care. We are paying for our grand daughter's day-care. They can not afford it. We wanted her to have excellent care so we found one and DS & GF approved and interviewed other parents. We are happy to do this for our grand daughter. DD called and wants me to come to Albuquerque in August for a mother/daughter Spa day. She is paying for me for watching Addy this fall when they are moving. I love having a day just to spend time with her without any interruptions. She is going to do another marathon for the Zoo in her city. These marathons are for charity. I am very positive for the future of my family. Hope is the key for positive feelings. Have a good day!! emoticon emoticon

    That is all good news! It isn't easy, these big bureaucracies with volumes of regulation. Enjoy those young children in your life... they keep US young, too!

    I am glad things are working out for your son, we worry so much and then when there is problems, it is very hard not to worry even more, glad you are going to take care of Addy, such a cute name and happy for the closeness you and your daughter are getting, motherhood does seem to open ones eyes huh? Take Care and Hugs

    Oh I am so glad that things are movnforward. Yes, I totally agree that your DS should have had an escort long ago for his protection. **SIGH** I am very happy to hear he's coming home too. You're right . . . he really DOES need to relax!

    As for the spa day w/your Dd, that sounds WONDERFUL!!! She really has come around, hasn't she! And bonus that you'll get to see Adrienne.

    Hugs and continued prayers. This next 2 weeks will no doubt be endless for your DS

    Got a call from my DS yesterday afternoon . . . kind of in a panic. Apparently he has to have 4 wisdom teeth removed (1 is impacted). He hasn't yet set up an appointment, but it will be soon. Anyhow, apparently he was given NO information about what to expect, so I spent 1/2 hr. calming him down and filling him in about what to expect and how to prepare for aftercare. I bless the day I gained the knowledge to help my kids!!!

    HUGS my dear.
