Unhappy

My little sister is going to be fine. She's like me, she has VERY weak ankles. But they only gave my uncle until the end of the month. this is his fourth or fifth heartattack just this year.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I know how you must be feeling. I lost two of my uncles within a week of each other in January. They were extremely close to each other, and we (our family) were not as close as we should have been, considering they lived less than 10 miles away. My one uncle was like 98 and still driving a car. But he had an operation on something and never fully recovered. The second uncle died, I think, from a broken heart and the stress of having lost a brother, along with another unknown cause.

He's acttually my great uncle, but I consider him my uncle since he's only a few years older than my mom. he's 46 and the doctor's told him last fall that he was in great health. I just don't know what went wrong.

Yes, call your local recruiter and ask about the "Split-Option" program. This allows you to enlist your Jr. year .. attend basic the summer between your Jr and Senior year. You must have parental consent.

Thanx, but is there ANY way I can get it to where my mom doesn't have to sign?
