The Day after he left

Chad left yesterday. To sum it up, it stunk. We have 6 more months left of this deployment. I just keep telling myself "we can do it, we can do it". Honestly today isn't as bad as I thought it might be, after the boys breakdowns last night. Today seems we're right back into or old ways. We all slept in. Jacob was up about 10 minutes to 9 and Emma and I were up at 9, then Jack got up about 9:40. Emma and I were up for only 20 minutes and she coughed and out it came, yep she threw up not once, not twice, but FOUR times. I got to change 3 of those times, and on the last time I'd just brought out a new outfit for her and she threw up on the sweatshirt I'd gotten for her. She also has horrible diarreah, we HAVE to go to the commissary because I only have 5 diapers left. She's napping right now, so when she's up and the boys are done with school we're off to the store. I'm rather annoyed about it all, but couldn't help but laugh at how it all has once again come about. I'm hoping she wakes up from her nap feeling better, only time will tell. Not sure why this came on.

Chad was able to call last night. He made it for the first half of his trip and he was hopeful to get back to his base camp today. He said he was going to call again today so he could talk to the kids, so hoepfully he will be able to. Thank you all again for all the prayers and the support you have given me and my family (including Chad), so far and to come.

I can't even imagine how difficult this all must be! Especially with sick kids! I will be praying for all of you and for Chad's safe travels.

Hi Christy,
I had three kids of my own, but my wife did most of the baby work. I just played, taught and trained them, and I still worry about their welfare and love them dearly.
I know what it's like to deploy--having served in Vietnam for 2 years-volunteered, helicopter door gunner with the 240th AHC in BearCat, Vietnam: 68-70. What a RUSH!

Trust in the Lord Jesus.

Warm

((((((((Christy)))))))))) Nothing like a sick kiddo to keep you from having time to think. I pray the rest of this deployment goes well and that little Miss Emma gets better soon.

You are awesome!
