Ok guys I know you have read my discussion about my friend who was spotting. Well there is more to the story. Our husbands our in the field doing some training. And all she wants is her man. I understand that because I think I would be the same. But here is the deal. I got a phone call at 1 am. Yes that is right 1am. She asked me to take her to the ER. She told me she was gushing and that she needs to go. So I get up and get myself ready then I get the car started and then get the kid up and out of the house. I go get her and we head to the ER. We got there and waited for 3 hours just to have her get put in a room. Mean while my kid is wide awake! Finally they come in the room and do a pelvic exam on her. Her cervix was still closed. They then put her in another room to get some blood work and urine from her. They told us it would be about an hour which brought us to 5am. Kid still awake! Neddless to say I had to call a buddy to come up there and sit with her because my kid needed sleep and mommy did too. I got a call from her at 930 am. She was just released from the hospital. THERE IS STILL A BABY!!!! Her angels must have been working overtime if you ask me. Anyhow now the military is still being buttheads and she even put in a RedCross for him. So here I have an emotional wreck and a cranky kid on my hands. And I am working on 3 hours or so of sleep. But when I think about it my kid did GREAT and my friend held up very well. I just wanted to know if any one has any words of wisdom or encouragement that I can send her way. I need help on this one because I am so drained myself. Thanks Guys!!!!

The service people can be heartless. Because if he is just in training field especially I can see no reason why they couldn't have had him sent home so he could be with his wife who desperatelly needs him. I know she is at her wits ends and doesn't know what to do. She is fighting against a brick wall when it comes to this kind of thing. The one thing I would do first thing is call his commanding officer and explain what happened and I have found in most cases that the people she was dealing with, the lower echolin, may not care enough to get her husband home but the commander is a different story. My husband was in the Air Force for 20 years and there was times that that was what we had to do. Believe me she will get results. If she doesn't it will surprise me.

One other thing just in case she is wondering she herself can contact the commander. I have done this myself. Women have also contacted the commander if it has been a long time and they have not heard from their husband. The commander gets in touch with the husband and instructs him to write a letter or call his wife so that she can rest easier knowing he is safe.

Well today I just found out that they had a meeting and pretty much her hubby has gotten in trouble for her calling and stuff... oh well. I agree to an extent with the military. He did take off 3 weeks to do the shots and implatation. They are going overseas soon so it is vital for him to train with his guys.

Oh what a relief. Im glad you were there for your friend. And Im sure she was too. I wonder what the problem was. And I wonder if she should be taking it easy now like maybe bed rest. Give her my best and you get some well earned rest.
