She spent 5 hours in hospital, lots of tests....bleeding, bright red, passing clots....they did a ultra sound, the baby is okay and moving, Joe said he looked like a boxer.  lol  Not he as in a boy just the baby.  Doctor said he had his legs crossed couldn't tell.  She's home and tired and stressed but doing okay.  still bleeds or losses a clot every so often, Dr. said there are lots of clots, not idea why????  She has to collect any tissue to have tested.  I'm going nuts here!  I feel bad for her but she insists she's doing okay and will call if she needs me to come early.  the idea is to set up the nursery when we go, .....

Work is very stressful, trying to train new girl.....boss finally gave in and gave me a raise, so little I didn't notice it in my pay check :(   still no over time pay!

Maggs, sending you and yours all my love.

Comment by scully_the_skeptic 21 hours ago

aww, maggs, I'm so sorry.  will be praying. 

mine is assigned to a cruiser out of Yokosuka - so I follow it on FB because pics get posted from time to time and I've been able to see my sailor in a few, and also just see the view from their "boat". kind of cool.

 Adding my gentle hugs Maggs. And always on the Positive List !

Blondie - crossing everything I have! Keep us posted and YIPPEE you told her you are retiring. Now only if that retirement you would slow down. but we all know that will never happen. but maybe when you retire - you will doing the stuff you LIKE to do. hugs

Sailors stationed in sSasebo will need long johns!  Hope you hear from them soon. And yes - 3 years feels like a long time - but honest they will have a great time.

Need to get along - take care and hugs

Maggs -

Heavenly Father, I come before you with a solemn heart and in need of your intercession. I pray that the cancer that has come into Maggs husbands life soon fades into a quick remission.

I believe in your capacity for miracles, and ask for this on our behalf. As we grow older, I know we become closer to the day you accept us back into your kingdom. I ask that you delay that holy union if it be your will. In your name I pray
(((HUGS))) Drew

We are going to get hubbies CT Scan on Wednesday. His last one showed cancer in his liver, meaning it has metastasized.
Comment by Anti M on Saturday

Sasebo is a great base, smaller than Yokosuka.  Why is he bummed?  True, the operating tempo of ships there is pretty high, they do stay at sea a lot, but Japan itself is very enjoyable.  Three years is not an eternity.

Comment by Classycalicat on Saturday

Blondie, any word about what is going on? Asking for prayers sounds like something scary is going on.......... :  (

Comment by Navyfan on Saturday

Momship12 - My son has been in Yokosuka for 6 months. At first there was not a lot of communication. They are very busy when they get there. Also, it's hard for them to talk to mom and dad right away because homesickness may have set in for a period of time. Be patient. If the text messages are short just be happy he texted. Out to sea, it's harder to communicate until they get in to a port. Come here to cry and vent. As one wise Navy Mom told me, this is your soft place to land.
