What We Know

Michael talked to the IG today.

Apparently the IG does not take kindly to soldiers not being paid so this issue has gone to a priority and being handled.

If Michael has heard nothing by 1500 on Friday he is to call Captain X who is handling this and Captain X gave him his phone number.

Michael feels a lot better about the situation since spending an hour on the phone with IG.

However, Mom had a complete come-apart meltdown last night about the whole situation, the unfairness, etc. so I'm not in great shape today. I didn't think I would ever stop crying. If ever I thought my heart and brain would break in two, it was last night. I even scared myself.

Please keep the situation in your thoughts and prayers, and thank you for all you have done for us. Michael is simply speechless with the support he has received from you through the blog.

I am glad things are looking up for Michael and his pay will arrive and not be delayed again.

I am praying for you Ness, if you need anything let me know. When do you see you oncologist?

I can't get into the endo till Nov 11th, so it will be a long time of high sugars.

Please take care of yourself.

God Bless~

Continuing to keep Michael in my prayers that all this is settled soon. I can't wait to meet you at Georgiapalooza 2008! I'm getting very excited.

My Dear Ness,
please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know as a mother my heart would be breaking for my son if he was going through all of this. Please stay strong and remember to take care of yourself. Sending love and spoons your way.

sending hugs your way..knowing someone has wronged our loved ones is so disheartening. I think Micehal did the right thing and from the sound of it he has an partner in his fight. Thanks for stopping by today-the support is priceless. I get pretty worked up myself!!

Oh Ness, please take care of you for me, okay? Michael and your girls and Roger need you healthy for them! Let us take care of the righteous indignation about this pay situation for Michael.

Here's where I'm at with it right now. I would hope that this IG GETS IT HANDLED. This needs to be taken care of, two weeks ago. I will believe it when Michael's bank account balance shows he's been paid, and not until. It's ridiculous, and it needs to be done. (snorts in disgust).

Let me at 'em!

This is the first time you've posted about this situation where I've actually felt like the person he spoke with was really going to do something about prayers are still going up that the IG (and the Captain, if need be) take this seriously and get Michael what's he's worked so hard for.

And Mom, take care of you too...easier said than done, I know. Prayers up for your strength and well-being as well.

PRayers from Georgia continue. Don't lose heart, Ness. Even God is bigger than the US Army.

Praying, praying, praying....

and I, as a taxpaying american citizen, do not take kindly to Michael not getting paid either!

They need to pull their heads out of their you know what and get his pay back on a regular schedule!

Ness, once in a while we moms have to break down. Please know you are in all of our prayers. And as soon as you see that oncologist please let us know.

Yes, the IG's don't like it because it means that someone, somewhere is not doing their job right! I hope they find the problem and he is able to get caught up on his pay.

I know what you mean about "fixing" everything. I get all torn up when I can't fix things for Shay. I know she is a big girl and should be able to take care of herself, but still.

Thinking of you!
