The countdown has begun!! We are just a few short weeks away from watching KS graduate from the first part of his training. I must say I am BEYOND excited to see him graduate. This road for him has not been without its hurdles. Before he was able to come home on leave for Christmas he managed to hurt his ankle, and once he was home it looked like a tennis ball was attached to the side of his foot. Thankfully that was able to heal completely during leave, but a few short weeks after being back into training his knees messed up on him. He had to accept a no running profile for 5 days, he has been fighting back feelings of disappointment and regret within himself. He is so dissapointed in his body for failing him, and he has been very homesick and wondering if this was the right decision. Thankfully with lots of prayer and support most of this is behind him now. I have no idea how he is doing post profile. I have not talked to him in over a week now, and tomorrow will be a full week without letters as well. Hopefully he will have time to write me just long enough to say whether he was able to pass his final PT test or not, it was Monday. I am so nervous for him, I know he can do it and I believe that he was able to pass. I would just like to know for sure whether he did pass or not. Before his knees started messing up he was running the two mile in 16:43 and was hoping to have it down to 16 minutes or less by this final PT test, but like I said that was before the knee issues. The kids and I are so excited with graduation and family day right around the corner, the end is in sight!!
