No news is good news

Ok...again, it's been awhile but there is nothing going on here really.  I finally heard from Walter Reed and they said at this time they don't think they need anything.  So....I guess that means that whenever they looked at my last MRI they determined that the "spot" was nothing to worry about at this point.  Great news!!!  I'm not sure what they mean by not needing anything "right now" but at least I can enjoy my summer and just keep my regular appointments here.  Who knows what will happen come this fall but I'm thinking that my husband can leave on deployment knowing I'm doing prettyok and not worry so much because goodness knows he will have enough to worry about while he's gone.  Other than him being gone on and off so much now, nothing is new and exciting.  I'm still so tired I can't stand it and having issues with my weight (not that I've put any on but I haven't lost any either) but I think I can deal with even those two points of contention in my life right now. 
I'm enjoying the summer as much as I can right now.  That's hard to do with hubby not here for weeks at a time but then I think when he gets back for a week or so it makes the things we do together all the more special :)

Great news... that will help the remaining time you have with your hubby before he deploys... looks like our hubby\'s are on opposite ends of deployments. Mine is coming home :-) and yours is leaving, :-(

Are you going to try and take a mini vacation before he leaves?

ohhhhh....your hubby is coming home...you must be so excited! Good for you :)
In September we are going to California to see his parents for about 9 days so I guess that\'s our mini vacation. I actually adore my inlaws so it should be a great time if I can get over the fact that almost right after we get back he is leaving (but I\'ll deal with that later....).
Hope you\'re having a great afternoon and I\'m so happy for you.

I know this is your first deployment like I just had, and my advice is, be selfish if you want to be. I tried to be diplomatic before he left and when I felt his absence I began to regret my diplomacy!

But, my in-laws are overbearing and intrusive with no idea that they\'re doing it...lol

I just came home from CA! It was just the trip I needed to make the time go a bit faster.

I agree with you about being diplomatic. I have been selfless for the past three years, sacrificing holidays and vacations because he couldn\'t get leave or had duty...no more of that (even though he thinks I am too negative about things and wants me to be always grateful for the little things we have). So in the next few months I plan on being selfish even if he doesn\'t like it :)
Have a wonderful evening!
