Laid back weekend... FINALLY

I don't have much to report right now b/c we actually had a very laid back weekend! No major issues or problems arose and Chuck and I finally got some mental (and physical) rest. I even got to take a few naps!!!

As far as Chuck's previous post goes... Chuck really needed to vent what was going on in his mind and that is why he posted about it. Y'all have no idea what it was like seeing him struggle w/ what happened. Some of you made comments about "just get over it..." Well, it was still very raw in his mind and he had been through quite an ordeal w/ his meds that week, and this was the straw that broke the camel's back. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I am fine w/ that. But don't judge someone who has the courage to tell the world (through his blog) what he is experiencing. I think it took a lot of guts for Chuck to post about that experience and he IS, in fact, dealing w/ what happened. Just needed to throw that out there...

In other news, Chuck and I have a new nephew! Chuck's sister Adessa had the baby on Thursday. His name is Gavin and he was 20 1/2 in. and over 9 pounds. Mom and baby are doing well. We now have 4 nephews and 1 niece (plus our own two kids, of course).

We still don't know when Chuck will be discharged from the hospital. The infection he had is healing very well, but he still has a few more doses of antibiotics. The surgery for "removing his wrist from his abdomen" is scheduled for next Monday, 21 November. I know we have to stay a few days after that, at least. Being home for Thanksgiving does not look like an option for us at this point, but we SHOULD be home by the end of the month. At least we'll be home for Christmas!!!

I need to get back to Chuck... just wanted to give a quick update. I hope you all are doing well and enjoyed your weekend. Thanks again for everything you do for us and other wounded troops and their families!

God Bless you all and our Armed Forces!

Until next time,
