Well we got a lot of good news this week! DH will no longer have to deal with a jerk of a SGT that thinks he owns the world (just pinned on a couple months ago and it turns out he's a real jack he hem now that he has the authority to be one). A few things concerning the deployment that I don't want to put here... but they are good things! And... the best one... DH is (most likely) getting a second surgery on his wrist. We are hoping and praying that this time they'll fix it. The Dr he had before was a quack. We came to find out after DH's wrist didn't heal correctly that this Dr was half way through a surgery when they discovered he was on the WRONG KNEE! The surgery DH got should have healed him in 2 months. It's been a year and he is still in daily pain.
Wish us luck!
EDIT: Hmmm.... I just re-read my last post and it looks like I didn't update you. We decided to go back on the birth control because it was getting close enough to the deployment (and the dates kept moving around like they usually do) that we could no longer be relatively sure he would get to see a baby be born. We waited for my period to arrive to begin my ring again and lo and behold it never came. We are expecting Pumpkin to arrive around July 19th. I wish they could decide on a deployment date so I know if he'll be home... but we all know that won't happen lol. As it stands, he could be leaving any time during an 8 month time frame. Big gap huh? Might as well say "In the next year or two, you'll be deploying." Oh well, we'll keep hoping it's after July so he can meet Pumpkin.
