Last night I received a call from my SR that I wasn’t looking forward to and need some serious advice and encouragement. The call was pretty scripted started out with him stating his name and not to show up to graduation because he wouldn’t be there and said I’m sick and have been moved to ship 04-div 741...no reasoning at first so I’m thinking “OH NO what happened to my baby"...finally I was like what happened son and he said I got chest pains while running and they are thinking it’s asthma. I’ll call you in a few days and let you know if I’m being separated. Before hanging up I told him to stay strong and don’t give up maybe something else caused the chest pain. I could hear the disappointment in his voice.
He hasn’t had any issues at home while running or any other activities or working out in general, he even did Battle Frog with no issues. He's not a "professional athlete" by any means and I am sure boot camp is a bit harder.
Does anyone know how he would be diagnosed and what makes them decide to send him home? I’m thinking maybe he could be getting sick or exhausted or maybe pushing himself too hard or possibly different climate than here (Texas) or he possibly has an allergy he wasn't aware of... just curious how they will determine the outcome.
Oh my gosh thank you!!! I didn't think we could send him letters there, do you think he may be in there long enough to receive them? I hadn't even been notified of his original ship/division.
Good morning Tiffany,
Any update on your SR ? Mine got to call home Sunday twice... So good to get an update. The doctor is following up the 1st this Thursday. I hope good news he feeling a bit stir-crazy and hearing too many negative what if's. Could'nt stress enough "One day at a time son"
How is your son doing? I hope better! Mine is coming home for 6 months to get well from complications of pneumonia but he will be back!
Our plan also... Best wishes !
