Default Sad sad day...

So once again I got to be the bearer of bad news to my hubby. That's not something I wanted to tell him. I got to tell him his brother had 3 days to live, so when he called me yesterday, I told him, only to find out that his brother died yesterday morning. I don't think any soldier should have to hear something like that..especially if they are overseas, you know? I guess I'm just kinda stressing right now, cause I don't know what's going on. Yes I contacted red cross, and his commander finally got the message today...but again I don't konw if hubby knows yet, seeing as he hasn't called me yet. *sighs* I'm also stressing that the military might pcs us back to Texas so we can be closer to his dad..who is also sick. What to do what to do wqhat to do? I guess I'll know something soon enough.

Long time no post... glad to hear back from yah. That is so sad. I am sorry you are dealing with that right now. Things will work out - as much as I hate to say that phrase... cause it doesn't solve anything. Well, as TXMom said - my prayers are with you.
