Update on Eric's Injury

Eric is doing much better and we want to thank everyone who prayed. We really appreciate it..PRAISE GOD!! The government flew my grandson, Bryson, and his grandparents (Eric's parents) to Washington DC last week. They stayed for one week with all expenses paid by the military/government. He was able to be released the day after they arrived and spend the week with them.

I have since found out that he will not lose his hand. Thank God..he is an electrician by trade. He will be transferred to his home unit in New York till the rest of his troop come back from Iraq and then he will be discharged. He has chosen to leave the military.

He has served 11+ years and was going to make a career out of it, but my grandson is really wanting him to stay home, so Eric has decided to do that. It will really be nice for Bry, as he hasn't seen his dad very much since he was born.

Please remember to keep praying for all the servicefolks..dependents too! I was there once and know how much I could have used prayers. The military doesn't get paid anything compared to what they should be! They do get benefits but monetary wise they are paid very little for their commitment.

If you see a military person ..thank them for there service. They deserve AT LEAST that!

You are so right about our military. There is no dollar amount that could equal what they are willing to give. I'm so glad it sounds like he will not lose his hand! Please drop by my blog when you have time. I've left a little award for you!
Blessings,
Sherry

I am so glad to hear that he is well and out of the hospital. It is hard to imagine what the service men and women give up just to fight for their country!
Your blog is great!

Sharon, I'm so glad to see the post telling us your son in law is going to be alright and is taking his discharge.....my son has been Army for 12 yrs. and just took a medical discharge as well after a 15 mos. tour in Iraq. You are so right about folks not knowing what these men and women do not get and the things they and the families do without........God bless them all. Hugs to you. Pam
