Le sigh.

Just when I thought this deployment couldn't possibly throw another wonky bag of bricks my way... I find out that Swiss had surgery while in the sandbox. After the fact.

He called last night to tell me that they were checking him into the hospital there to take care of an issue that started (though seemed so innocent and not a big deal) while he was home on R&R. That was the last I heard. So, naturally, I spent the whole night wringing my hands, worrying, fretting over his status. I didn't hear from him today so I sent an e-mail off to the FRG. Thank God for our awesome FRG leader... I had a response from the Lt. Colonel within 2 hours. And they told me that he had just gotten out of surgery and was recovering well.

You heard that right. I found out he had surgery AFTER THE FACT. My husband went under the knife, under anesthesia, the whole works and not a single soul thought to call and inform me. Seriously.

I want to be mad about it. I want to figure out how this oversight happened. I want answers. But more than all of that... I want to hear from Swiss himself that he is okay. So I wait and wring hands and fret all over again.

Ugh. Deployment, you can suck it. For reals.

I'll keep y'all posted about his condition but I have no real reason to think he isn't recovering nicely. But if you feel like it, toss some good juju his way, okay? Thanks.

Deployments can be so frustrating for this reason. Not being able to talk to each other whenever you want or need to. It just sucks. I hope your husband is ok!

Whaaat?! I would have been just as mad as you are. And I don't have the luxury of a "good" FRG (or FRSA). JuJu sent to you and the hubs.

Dude, I would be so pissed off about something like that!!! Yay for your FRG leader for saving the day and getting you in touch with the command.

Sending juju galore to Swiss!

I can and can't believe this both at the same time! That sucks! I know what you mean about knowing in your head that he is recovering nicely but wanting to hear it directly from him! I had that recently when my bf arrived at the sandbox. I heard from the FRG he was there, but I didn't feel ok until I talked to him.
Sending the good vibes to you and I hope you hear from him soon so your mind can relax a little!
