Jase, during his first week of basic training, has come down with a severe cough, chest/head congestion, and an alternately bloody/runny nose.

Please send him heaps and heaps and gobs and oodles of good healing stuff.
He's in Oklahoma if that helps.

And his morale's down - he's afraid that he's going to let down "everyone counting on him" (me and the little'un).

I'm thinkin' he's just sick cuz he'd rather be with you and baby bull.

If so, I can't blame him.

Maybe he's not cut out to be an "away from the family" family man.

Or, maybe he's just got a flu. In that case.

D'oh!
When I wrote that I was just kinda flippin' a bit, and didn't think how it might be interpreted - his letters just sounded so down.

Sorry if I scared anyone.

juniperb - Thankya I'm sure that you will definitely help.

lioneye - Geez, he's gonna have a hard time in the army if that's the way he reacts to being away from us. Now that you say it, though, part of me thinks that that might be a portion of it (not all, but some - perhaps the initiation).
Thank you for the gettin' rid of flu vibes

Aww, prox....I knnow it's gotta be so awfully hard to be apart, especially so soon after your wedding. And doubly difficult when you can't go to help him heal.
Sending healing white lite to Jason in OK, you with your anxious heart, and your little one who's feeling your worry subconciously.

Just got my Sunday phone call from him - we got to talk for 15 minutes or so.
We both cried a good deal.
I love him so much.

He's still sick - on a 10-day no PT/No Field March code; after that, on a 5-day "at own pace" code. He insists on taking part in the "smokings" (the hands-off beatings) that his company & platoon get, even sick - just like I did w/ my broken pelvis when I was in. He's on antibiotics, an inhaler, and a few other things.
Keep that white light comin'.
His morale's still down (for a number of reasons), but at least I got the chance to tell him that nothing that he could ever do, and certainly nothing that could happen there, would ever "let me down".

What are the smokings?

I hope that your man gets better soon. He sounds like he is reacting to some stresses that are coming from within. He will gain his strength from you. He needs your positivity right now.

Are you and your baby not able to live on the base?

Love and Peace,

*yaaaaawwwwwn*

(My body's not quite adjusted to Standard Time yet...it jerked awake at 4:50 AM and wouldn't go back to sleep.)

Thankya, Sunmeadow

Hm...definition of a "smoking"...
It's when a drill sergeant/the drill sergeants believe that a private/the privates are due for a lesson of some sort (most often due to what is labelled a mis-deed - not standing correctly in formation, one private being late to formation, a private nodding off during a lesson, etc.).
That private, or more often a group of privates encompassing the platoon or company but due to the actions of one private, then runs, rolls, does push-ups, or whatever other physically challenging/demanding task the Drill appoints until the point at which the privates are rendered unable to continue and/or puke, at which point they are made to further engage in that excercise or excercises until the Drill decides that they are done (usually to the point of puking 1-5 more times, and/or to the point of physical exhaustion, and/or until they are a quivering mass of tissue twitching on the ground - depending on the severity of the misdeed being punished). While this is happening a Drill or multiple Drills are yelling to the privates whatever lesson they believe should be learned.
I think that that's close to the actual definition of the process of brain-washing.
I can say that b/c I've been through it, too, and know, without malice, that that is the express purpose of Basic Training.

We can't live on this post b/c he's only going to be there until December 18th.
He'll then be back here until the 5th or 6th of January, at which point he'll go down to southern Georgia to begin Warrant Officer training (lasting through mid-Feb.) followed by Helicopter Flight Training (roughly 9 months).
We won't qualify for base housing there because he'll just be a trainee, not permanently attached. So, at the start of Feb. I'm moving myself (6 1/2 mo. preggers) and at least some of our stuff down to a town beside the base. We'll be down there up through the first part of that Autumn.

Sorry if that sounds overly-formal...it's early, and I'm not writing right.

Hi Prox...I don't know if you are allowed to say where exactly someone is, but if Jason is at Ft. Sill, he should try to go over to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and find the spot where the Easter Pageant is played out every year. There is a small stone alter in the woods behind the chapel building. If he goes there and just imagines healing coming up through the souls of his feet and through his body, then out through the top of his head in a huge circle, he might start to feel better. It is a very unusual spot and I always felt a great deal of magnetic response when I was there. If he is in Enid or Altus, well, no wonder he feels sick. I think pretty much everyone does when they get there. If its Altus, maybe he can get over to Quartz Mountain. That has some healing places as well. Oklahoma is a challenge to almost everyone who goes there (I should know. I went there at birth.) I've never been in the military, so I don't know the rules, but if he does get the chance to meander around the state, there are some other great healing places. Turner Falls near Ardmore is really outstanding. Or the amazing park at Walters (just south of Lawton and Ft. Sill) where the Choctaw people have met for many years for pow-wows. Very magical spot. Anyway, healing light to you both (well, all three).

Thank you FishKitten & Aph

FK - He doesn't really get much free time, and won't get a chance to get off base until the final day of Basic (family day) - but he is in Fort Sill.
He's graduating mid-December - is that spot that you mentioned viable then?
If so, I'll see about getting him up there.

Poor Scatbug. Yes, he can get up there in December, but I doubt it will be very pleasant. Oklahoma is like a wind tunnel at the best of times and December tends not to be the vest of times. If he is graduating, maybe he will be able to come home then, which I'm sure would do him much more good than the spot behind the chapel. If he is having ear and pneumonia problems, the Okie winds are the worst possible thing for him, so he might want to try something else. There is tons of really fine dust in the air where he is located due to the tiny size of the grains that compose Oklahoma red clay (the main soil component in his area). When that gets picked up by the wind and forcibly blown into your nose and mouth and ears, well, you see what happened. Again, I don't know much about the army, but if possible he should wear a hood that covers his ears and a bandana or something over his mouth and nose. (Those old cowboy movies always show the bandits dresseed that way, but trust me anyone trying to navigate the Chisholm Trail had to do it.) Whatever he can do to keep the dust out of his nose, mouth, and ears...that's the ticket. By the way, did you know that Chief Geronimo was imprisoned at Ft. Sill? He was so determined to get away that he starved himself for a long time trying to fit between the bars of his cell. He never did get away, though. Lots of LIGHT and HEALING Jason's way. When he gets feeling better, I strongly recommend Chi Chi's Mexican Cantina if it is still there. Great food. (Oh right, he doesn't like onions or garlic, does he? Well, if you go for a visit...)

Heya ya'll -

Again, thank you for your help...please continue.
Jase's still sick. I missed his calls today (stupid, stupid reception black hole that is Old Town Fredericksburg) - he got to make an unscheduled contact regarding transportation at the end of BCT - but his Mom said that he's still ill and will go on sick call tomorrow; he didn't sound all that good in the messages that I got, either.
