My Husband left 1/8/19 and after a long 2 1/2 weeks my husband finally got to call home, and I even got my first letter today!! This is the hardest thing I've had to experience, being 8 months pregnant, living on my own for the first time and not having any contact with my husband, but the 10 minutes we got to talk made up for it all! He is doing so good, which is such a relief, he is even in charge of 10 guys in his division! He said getting mail is the best part of the day, but that they don't get any time to write because they are constantly getting in trouble for being too loud and chatty. He was supposed to have an hour call but because they got in trouble they only got 10 min. "p days" were the worst days for him because of how slow they went, and the swimming tests were a lot of fun! I am so proud of my sailor, I can't wait to hear from him again! He loved the sandboxx letter I sent with an image of an ultrasound picture, so I am going to continue sending those, he got it within 2 days! I recommend it to others! Hopefully time will go by faster now that I know he is okay and that he is doing so good!
