Thank You & Update on Mike in Iraq!(m)

Thank you so much ladies for remembering my Birthday. I actually had a better one then I expected. My Beloved Dear Husband called me right on the dot of the 31st AM all the way from IRAQ! I know it has been some time since I have posted to you and I may need to update a little. DH had deployed like you may know to Kuwait onthe 20th of Feb. Well, I am now in Florida with my mom instead of alone in Germany and since I flew DH has advanced into Iraq. He is now 70 miles South of Baghdad and needless to say I stay pretty much nervous all day. Cringe when the phone rings and sigh when sad news is reported on MSNBC. But I now have my family around me and I have heard from Mike and know he still has his good spirit and sense of humor to keep him going. Knowing he isn't depressed and overwhelmed makes this deployment a lot easier to deal with. He assures me he is safe, has plenty of food and water, and in no immediate danger....my answer to the last is "Yeah Right!" He thanks everyone for all the wonderful thoughts and prayers that I passed along to him from all of you wonderful ladies who took the time to include us.

Love ya all and HUGS! Nancy

Nancy, I wanted to say you and your DH are in my prayers and thoughts. I can not image what you go through each and every day, you are a very strong person. I am glad you are with you family right now and they are able to give you support. Keep us posted on how you are doing! Keep your chin up!

Nancy~

So good to hear from you...and what a blessing you were able to talk with your DH on your birthday! Glad you are near family during this difficult time. My DH was there during Desert Storm as was his brother, who is there again this time. All you can do is try to keep busy and offer up your prayers.

Your Mike and all of our family and friends who are currently serving are in our thoughts and prayers each and every day. Hang in there!

Nancy, it was great to hear from you! I'm glad you're in the US of A right now, too. There's nothing better than family when you're feeling lonely.... I hope you'll pop in from time to time and let us know how things are going. You and Mike are so lucky to have each other, you are such wonderful support for each other!

Take good care of yourself!
