Injured, But Not So Bad

It's been a little bit since I wrote in my blog. I got hurt a week ago. We were on a dismounted patrol and got ambushed from 3 sides. The rounds were impacting around us, and one of the rounds fragmented. One of the fragments got stuck in my leg, which I ended up pulling out. Luckily it was small enough to not have made me get med-evaced. They ended up putting me in for a Purple Heart, which the LT signed off on, so I will be having an award ceremony soon.

I can't wait to get home. I just have been getting pretty tired of being here, and away from my family. Kathy has been having to take care of our three kiddos who have been sick. Thankfully Mom and the family have been there to help as much as they can.

I received word that the kids are now sleeping in my shirts. It was initially Peyton that KAthy allowed to wear my shirt, but then Broc became jealous, so she allowed him to as well. Kathy says it makes them feel really special. She told them that only special kids that I really love get to wear my shirts. Their response was obviously enthusiastic. I think it is pretty awesome that they like to wear my shirts in bed.

Other than that, things have been pretty slow around here. I just can't wait to get home.
