Yes, LindaGirl, you have to insist that he stay home for dinners and such. He needs to be there for you too!  Hug him for all of us whose sons won't be home. And daughters.

Comment by LindaGirl yesterday
Hi baby dukie's mama, and I thought it was only my son who comes home & disappears to go out with his friends. We have yet to sit down & have a dinner with him since he has been home for the last 2 or 3 nights! Tomorrow night for sure, we are going to insist that he stay home & have dinner with us.
Comment by baby dukie's mama on Sunday

Linda, wow!  What a lucky guy!  As a former Neuro and ER RN, all I was thinking when you wrote motorcycle vs car, I was automatically thinking massive head injuries.  Thankfully his guardian angle was working overtime!!  Pryaers for a rapid recovery and good healing of those bones!!

I have a happy story to relate.  My son was scheduled to arrive for leave, today at 0215!  We live over an hour away from the airport.  Husband and I were not looking forward to not sleeping, but we were getting our boy back.  However, on Thursday, I recieved a call from my son asking if I could pick him up at 2130 from the airport.  I was shocked, and excited.  Of course we were able to get him basically a day and a half early.  

What happened was he had already arranged with a buddy to get to the airport a day early, so he wouldn't have to pay a cab and that he knew he was at the airport.  His buddy told him to wear his NSU's.  When he tried to check in, he was unable due to being so early.  However, the desk clerk checked all available flights and found the earlier one for him so he didn't have to wait and eat up two days of leave in an airport.  It was a wonderful gift she gave us!  However, he's been home two days, and we have seen him less than 30"!!  Darn friends!!  LOL!!

Merry Christmas to all of you!! Many blessings and Happy New Year!!

Dear Shea, I'm so sorry for the mental suffering you endured, & for the loss of the young man, as well as the pain his family endured. I do hope that "time" will & does ease the pain & suffering accidents cause. All we can do is pray, and ask The Lord to be with us & get us through the rough times. And Kevsmom93, I am going to tell my son what you husband says about motorcycles: "there are 2 people who ride motorcycles, those who have crashed & those who will crash". I want him to remember that if he ever gets on a bike again.
Comment by Shea on Saturday
My dear Linda my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. What Kevsmom said is so true. I was involved in an accident in 2007 with a motorcycle. A young man driving one at an extremely high rate of speed hit me. He tried to avoid me at the last minute which is why I am here today. Instead of hitting me broadside at the drivers door he hit at the front wheel. He did not survive the accident and left behind a wife and 2 year old daughter and I suffered with PTSD for a number of years after. There is a lesson and reason for everything and I'm sure God will reveal it in good time. Hugs to you!

linda--glad your sailor is home and your marine son his ok. May God bless him with a speedy recovery!

Comment by Cath Bubblehead mom on Saturday

Linda - you definitely have your hands full!! I hope you can find peace this Christmas and wishing you a better new year!

Comment by Kevsmom93 on Saturday

Dear Linda my thoughts are very much with you and I am happy to hear your son will heal. Yes, motorcycles are extremely dangerous, two very close people to me have been injured while riding on them, one of them was my husband decades ago. He's in law enforcement and has always said there are two people who ride motorcycles "those who have crashed and those who will crash." Neither of the accidents affecting my loved ones was their fault either. Enjoy having that handsome Sailor of yours home, God's blessings to you and your family.

Comment by LindaGirl on Saturday
Thank you for all your prayers & thoughts. Brian is in a lot of pain right now, & May need surgery on his wrist. We'll know more when he sees the surgeon on Monday. All day yesterday, I was counting my blessings, knowing he could have been hurt much more seriously or worse. I've been thanking & praising God every minute for watching over my son yesterday, keeping him safe from further harm, considering how deadly motorcycle accidents usually are. I'm hoping this will sway him against motorcycles from now on, but it's too soon to have that conversation with him. I never wanted him to get a motorcycle in the first place, I was dead against it for good reason, hopefully now he'll realize why.
