So, my husband was notified that his grandfather was unresponsive by the red cross (he's in Iraq). He was given my number to call and he called me to let me know that he knew. He had called his mom as well and spoke with her. (This is his mothers father). He is usually so upbeat on the phone and loud. He was so quiet and it was all I could do to hold back tears. I wanted to contain myself. He said that he loved me so much and that his unit was going to be getting him home within the next few days. So, we're looking at days rather than weeks that Grandpa will be with us. I have to canel my tickets and I had a long talk with my dad about seeing him soon. He was so understanding. I am just so worried about my husband and I hope that he makes it home ok. He was so upset on the phone. :-( Please say a prayer for him and his family.
