My middle child, the miracle child that I carried through nursing school, will be at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma in Officer Training.
Be still my scared, proud heart.
Where did the time go? He just graduated and was commissioned yesterday in May, or so it seems...
I am so not ready for this.
He will be only 8 hours away and will be able to make it home for Thanksgiving and Christmas for which I am so blessed. But he goes back after Christmas on 5 January and it will be 6 months before I see him.
I'm preparing my heart for I know he will see duty in Afghanistan the way the war is going. He is proud of what he does and he will be well trained. I gave him to God when he was born and is only on loan to me.
In our area alone, we have lost three soldiers in the last week. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.
Roger has been to ER this week for a very swollen right leg/ankle/knee. They ruled out a blood clot, yet on the x-ray a bone chip showed up on his ankle so he has an apt. with the podiatrist tomorrow morning. Although his uric acid level was somewhat elevated and they put him on Colchicine for gout, this isn't acting like gout. Please keep him in your prayers.
KJ, depending on Roger's outcome tomorrow, will be going home to begin life anew sometime this weekend. Headaches are a thing of the past and the 21 staples came out on Monday. She is sore but so very happy to be out of pain. We were told the shunt could get infected so to keep her well. It is so shocking to see her eyes twinkling and a smile on her sweet little face after five months of pain.
I will update as I can about Roger tomorrow.
Enjoy your weekend.
