Hey guys, some slow days here recently. We got our body armor today, which can mean that we are leaving in as little as a week. But no one here thinks that. We are pretty sure we're still leaving late February, at least I hope so I can see my family and Amy and my friends. But we'll see. I wanted to take a second to say thank you to those of you who were praying for my cousin. She was in a fire a couple days ago and they flew her down to GA's burn center. She is now doing very well and going home, I’m sure there's still some recovery that has to happen, but we're all glad she's alive. I'd also like for you all to remember her friends that died in the fire along w/ the 4 other people that lost their lives and keep their families in your thoughts and prayers. As far as I know, her boyfriend is also doing better, but still in serious condition, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers also.

My surgery is tomorrow at 0930 so here we go. It’ll be my first time under the knife and the first time I’ve been knocked out for an operation so I’m a little nervous, but mostly I want it to hurry up and be done w/ so I can recover and stop hurting all the time. Well it may be a few days until I can get back to a computer, ill try to get someone to get on for me tomorrow and let all of you know how it went, but until then, God bless and take care.

Hey guys, todays pretty much an off day, can't complain about that. I’m going to go down to the bowling alley after the 12 o’clock formation and hang out and think about anything but the army. Yesterday was a day to remember. We had some classes, all outside. One was on first aid, one was on how to throw a grenade, and the other was UXO. UXO is unexploded ordnance. So oh well. Basically UXO is DON'T TOUCH IT!!! Cause just because it hasn't gone off doesn't mean it won't. But the problem w/ it was that I was hurting and it was freezing so when I finally got back, I did nothing but lay and take painkillers. Well that's about it, I promise to try to keep you guys more informed, I’ve been lazy in the past, and I’m still trying to figure out something w/ my pictures. See I don't have the program so I can't burn my pics to CD's. But as soon as I get it all squared away, ill send the CD’s to George and hopefully he can hook you guys up w/ some cool pictures. But until then, love you guys. Thanks for your support and prayers. Peace
