Clarification...

I am so sorry. I didn't mean for so many of you to come to the wrong conclusion on that last post. We are all fine.

1. My husband hurt his back last week. His injury has caused intense leg pain and nerve weakness in his foot. We are unsure if he will be transported to another "undisclosed" location or be sent to Germany for surgery. It has been a week full of ups and downs with this as it looked like he was possibly going to come home....and now...no clue???? He is trying to do everything he can to stay and fulfil his commitment and the good news is that the steroids and injections are giving him some relief. It's a waiting game.

2. My son's birthday is this week. He is the one most affected by his father being gone. He is doing well but is, once again, being riddled with some irritable bowel (type) issues. (NOT fun with a first grader who is in school all day.)

3. I usually take time off for Christmas break. I am just taking a bit of extra time with all the added responsibilities I have this year. I find that if I am busy thinking about other things....I cannot make anything nice anyway!

So, I am just trying to lighten my load so that I can handle everything around here...

Thank you so much for all the emails/calls. We are good.

Merry Christmas y'all and SEE you in the new year!

HUGS and xo

Well, I'm happy to hear that that is "all" that's going on. Like that isn't enough! I sure hope they can get his back all healed up soon and that your son has a happy birthday, even without his dad being around. Merry Christmas to you, and enjoy your time off!

Amy said...

Hugs and prayers all around. Merry Christmas!

So sorry you needed to explain, I thought your explanation was complete enough to understand you just needed time to take care of family matters!
XOX!

I will pray for your family. I am not sure what exactly your son's irratible bowel is like but I take Equalactrin. Theis is an over the counter fiber that is gentler on the stomach. I have to have my pharmacy order it. If you have any questions, email me anitamocha@charter.net

You are sweet for coming back and explain though I can understand you so well being busy at this time .Please do take the time for you family .That sure is a lot going on.
Take care,

A bit better news, for sure. But it is a crazy time of year without the added little things, that no matter how small, tend to seem a little more during this time. Being a military wife and family is hard, and deployments are not easy. I am so impressed with the way you juggle everything life throws you, and you certainly deserve a little more "YOU/ME" time for you and your family any time, but especially for the holidays. I look forward to hearing everything is better, and life is good. Happy Happy Holidays!

So sorry to hear all this, Cammie. I pray for your family that your husband returns soon and safe and your son gets better. I had IBS for a while and I can't imagine a 1st grader with it. Yikes! Take the time you need for your family. They are #1. We'll miss you but look forward to your creativity when you are ready to return. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

So glad to hear the news. Hope hubby keeps feeling better with the injections, etc. Oh, your poor baby boy! That's gotta be tough, but wish him happy birthday from your blogging friends!

Merry Christmas!

Please Thank your Husband for the sacrifices he is making to keep us all safe.I will keep him in my prayers and your Son.
Well, and you to for your sacrifice.

Will look forward to what you will have for us in the New Year, when ever the time is right for you.

I don't think you should ever feel pressured to do this.
Take Care of yourself as well!
Maybe a Hot bubble bath would help! :)

Maybe your son is gluten intolerant. IBS is often misdiagnosed and it is really gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease which is from gluten. Praying your husband gets better real soon and your son has a wonderful birthday. Hang in there!

Nicole said...

HEY CAMMIE, I was worried, but didn't want to add to the burden!

Glad to hear you are doing well!
Enjoy the time away from the computer; it always shows in my creations when I do the same! LOL!

Merry Christmas, GIRLY! xox Nicole

Starla said...

Hang in there Cammie!! Family should always come first!!

Dawn Easton said...

Carolyn, I hope that your husband has a speedy recovery. I'm sure it's a worry having him so far away. Hope your son's irritable bowel issues come to an end as well. Chloe had the same problem at one point a couple of years ago and it was from stress/worry.
I hope that you all can relax and enjoy the holiday season!

CountessLaurie said...

Sending more prayers. Take all the time you need (and want!!)

Hopefully things ease up so you can all thoroughly enjoy the holidays!!

Linda Beeson said...

We are all busy at this time of the year so we sure understand you saying you need a break and you have even a bigger reason - may your holidays end up wonderful and amazing!

Sylvia said...

Cammie: Thanks for the update, but you need to take time for your family and yourself. Lots of stress us military families endure,but keep a prayer in your heart, and a smile on your face, God Loves You.
May your and yours be blessed this holiday season. and May those Angels watch over you all. My very best wishes for 2010. Sylvia/Iowa

Julie Koerber said...

Hang in there Cammie! Saying prayers for peace and wellness! Hopefully, you'll get some downtime and the docs will be able to help your hubby! That sounds painful and not very much fun! HUGS!

Anita C said...

Cammie, I hope that your hubby gets all the care that he needs and makes a full recovery. It would be nice if was able to go home and be with you guys. Wishing you and your family all the best. Merry Christmas!
