Hello all,  I guess you have all seen they are in the Andaman Sea, I had to look up that location:

Thank you everyone for the well wishes and prayers for my Mom, it really means a lot to me.  She is home from the hospital.  So thankful my sister is able to be there.  I talked to my Mom today and she was doing well. Said she doesn't like the walker so she is walking w/o it.  I hope my sis doesn't catch her!  Mom it was holding her back and too much bother, that she needs to get stronger!  I tease her she is a TIMEX, takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!  She is 93, God bless her, but has become much weaker in the last year as well. :-(  We are trying to get home quicker than planned and I will take another month off work (PT only) and be there to help her out. 

I don't know the exact dates for leave in general, only Steven's and he gets the second leave.  I think there are two.  I don't know anything about Thanksgiving.   Kyann, I don't want to put it here, I will send you a FB private message. 

I hope to prepare Steven's box when I get home and get it off with at lleast some fudge and his favorite Christmas cookies....

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

i, too, sent a box to hunter in the mail today.  his birthday is dec 6, hoping it makes it there for that.  we'll celebrate here, too, if he gets to come home.

Sharon, prayers and hugs for your mom and your family. Hope she is feeling better!

TrueBlue, Jesse has flights for mid-December and I talk to him every day on email and he hasn't said anything about the possibility of not making is flight. Don't worry (at least not yet).

Kyann, keep the faith! I'm hoping and praying Hunter can come home too!

Mailing a box in the morning to the ship. Hope it gets there before 1st leave, but if not, it'll keep.  Just little stockings of candy for him and his shop friends and some of his snacks. (including his hostess mini muffins. haven't had the heart yet to tell him about hostess).

Folgers, Hallmark, Budweiser -- their commercials get me every year!!

Sharon, thinking and praying for your mom.
Cute cartoon, menchord, thanks for sharing.
I tell you, I'm probably going to be an emotional wreck until i hear for sure that Hunter will be coming home. I almost lost it this morning when I saw the folger's commercial where the girl puts the bow on her brother who came home and says "you're my present this year." Probably would have lost it if he had been a Military guy...ugh...just too emotional for me right now.
Hope you all have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

Sharon, So glad to hear your mother is improving.

We just celebrated my Mom's 85th on the 13th and I know how much worse they are at that age just fighting off a cold, so pneumonia has to be so much harder. Prayers will continue.

Comment by BHappy (Sharon) on November 17, 2012 at 9:41pm

Thank you friends.  She is doing better today, has pneumonia...but improving.  I appreciate your prayers.  :-)

Sorry, Sharon, to hear your mom is back in the hospital.  I too will keep her in my prayers.  Safe travels home!

Comment by MarianneKT's Mom on November 16, 2012 at 10:45pm

Sharon, so sorry to hear about your Mom.  I will keep her in my prayers. 

Comment by BHappy (Sharon) on November 16, 2012 at 10:42pm

Hello all,

Trueblue, I hope and pray your son will make it home. It seems often it is last minute... I don't know, but I DO know it is hard. 

We are traveling home but sad today as my mother is BACK in the hospital.  :-(
