I told her to expect a few packages. Didn't tell her how many. She's going to be absolutely speechless with everyone's kindness.

I know she'll share with her squadron and all the staff/physicians that she works with.


I'm overwhelmed with everyone's generosity and responses. That's all I can say without tearing up even more.

That's what family is for

We may not be related, but we are family.

Well, maybe not Skia...

Well, since she's in the medical field here's something to improve morale:

Put out three containers with all the free condoms. Label them S,M, and L. Of course they are all the same. Watch as all the "L" ones run out.

She can also do what I did. i wanted a lollipop for not screaming some great profanities after a cortizone shot in the shoulder. Well, the PA didn't have any and told me to pretend there was one on the end of a tongue depressor. I taped an unopened condom too it. She laughed so hard she made a few extra and I gave two of them to our battalion Chaplain. He was a little upset a couple hours later when he realized what I gave him that he had on display in his office. He even told the XO and the Battalion Commander (and all the staff and company commanders) about it in the morning Battle Update Brief the next morning as part of his brief. That back fired and the BN CDR damn near fell out of his chair laughing.

When my son was in the sand box, the most requested snack was Haribo's Gummy Bears.

She has some pretty funny stories. Mostly from days when she switches off and rides as an EMT.

She said they had to pick up some guy that called in his own suicide attempt. They got there and discovered he had cut the shit out of the topside of his forearm with a pair of dull scissors. Pretty painful.

When they got him in the back of the ambulance, he started to get combative, so they had to strap him down. At the hospital, the first thing they did was to begin a sedative because he was so unruly. She said, after having cut himself up with dull scissors, he cried like a bitch at the sight of the needle...and promised he'd be good.

She said she walked out of the room when he started getting mouthy with the physician on duty...who happened to be a Colonel.

Seems like it was a lifetime ago when you were out at the house in AZ and she was just barely in middle school.
