Update on my husband
« on: November 03, 2009, 04:25:12 AM »
Although I am finished posting on this forum I wanted to update those of you that have been praying for my husband. He is scheduled to be home on Thanksgiving. Once he is home he will de-mobilize and do the paperwork for a possible partial disability in regard to his two untreated herniated discs. He will be returning to his civilian job just after Theophany.

Thank you again for all your prayers.

Thanks for the update. I was planning out my end of November and December, and I wondered how things were looking.  Grant a speedy homecoming, O Lord!

My husband is now back in Washington state! He isn't home just yet- still out processing, but he is at least in the same state as the rest of the family now.

I am driving down to attend his homecoming ceremony and bring him home in 45 min. (Couldn't sleep all night in anticipation!) Originally he was going to have to attend outprocessing all next week on the state level. But they pushed it all thru quickly and once I bring him home he is home until his drill next month. And I think that the next three drills are "family" drills, so it will be events we can all go to.

Again thank you for all your prayers for my husband.
