ohhhhhhhhhh!!!! I got hit with THIS this past Friday. IT IS NOT FUN in any way, shape, or form. I don't wish this on anyone. (Well, maybe on the enemy over in Afghanistan. Then we wouldn't even have to use ammunition. We could just gather them up as they fell to the ground in dizziness and take them all away.) A much safer outcome ... alas...not possible.
It was not what I anticipated for my time with Justin, but I know all things happen for a reason. I am up and walking slowly today. (even gonna get a shower...YIPPEE)
The last two days I got to listen to Justin laughing and having fun with his siblings., (from my bed) He's Marine loud, all you moms know what I mean who have one. ...so his voice rises over the others. But when he and his brothers get together playing an x-box game...you know it.
It was a wonderful sound that gave me lots of smiles. He came in occasionally to see me or bring crackers.
I didn't want anybody getting near me in case I had a virus causing the dang vertigo.
However, I am better and will see him off today with his dad taking him back to LeJeune. It is bittersweet. I don't know if we will go to Lejeune on Thursday to see the Marines off as they leave for Cherry Point. Most ventures like that are quite disappointing as there is very little "real-time" to spend with your Marine and Justin is so focused when he is on base that it is not very relaxed or enjoyable time. I have a feeling they will be running here and there and so I'm curious. Any Marine moms out there who have a say about whether they went to see their Marine off on his fly-out day, and whether it was disappointing?
Sound off, cause I'm anxious to hear.
Either way we are definitely saying goodbyes, hugs, prayers, and appreciating the moments today.
Thanks so much for praying for me and for this day. Hugs to all!
