I would be a big fat liar if I said I didn't want to see him again. But really, how exciting can a guy be with a fractured hip!? I also want to see him succeed and finish, but I want him to be able to do his best and not have a broken body holding him back.
However, the good news is, I haven't heard from him all week. I know that sounds like it's bad news, but if he had to come home he would have called me. So I think it is all going to be alright. He has a lot of people praying for him.
Some good news! Ben is proving to be a great leader among his fellow soldiers, and is some kind of official leader of them now. I told him it all comes from being a dad, and getting that daddy-knows-all-you-better-do-what-I-say-or-else attitude and voice. He thought that was funny -- and probably true.
He is also doing really well with his weapon training and scored an "Expert" with his shooting and gets a cool metal. I'm not sure how exciting this is, but he seemed pretty proud of himself when he told me.
Hopefully, he will call me later today. I know he finally got his cell phone I sent him on July 22nd, the other day. I thought I was going to have to report it lost or stolen because it was taking so long and I had sent it priority! Stupid mail people... at least he got it and now he can talk to me much longer than before! Yippy Skippy!
