"Long lost husband" update
Thu, 06-26-2003 - 1:58am
FINALLY. . .after nearly six weeks of waiting I heard from my husband tonight.

I knew he'd call when he could, but the wait was difficult.

He sounds good, all things considered, and despite the crappy telephone connection. He's getting our mail. . .albeit slowly. . .and sending some mail back to us (not typical for him.)

Thank you all for your positive thoughts and prayers for my family and my soldier. . .and other military families and service personnel like us.

With all due respect to President Bush, this war won't be over for me until I have my husband in my arms again. . .and until that day comes it's nice to have supportive friends IRL. . .and on an internet debate board.

Thanks again,


Jeez. . .how the heck am I supposed to get to sleep now. . .

I'm glad you heard from him. It must be good to hear his voice after all this time.

I'm so happy you heard from him & sorry it took so long. I hope he is back soon, but I'm assuming it's one of those several months ones. I'll be thinking of you!

Glad to hear you've heard from you dh. I agree the war is NOT over until our men come home. I have a cousin over there now, last heard from him four weeks ago.

I also have a brother who will graduate from the naval academy next year.(he's going to be a seal....god help us!) So it will be a nerve wracking time for us, worrying about what he is up to.(and knowing him, he'll be in the middle of it!).....is it too much to hope for total world peace by next May?

I'll keep your dh in our prayers, and pray for a speedy return.
