Good News!

I'm back in Italy with some good news. My friend's husband was discharged from the hospital and actually made the trip back to Italy with my friend and I.

Basically what happened is that a bridge collapsed under the truck he was driving and the truck rolled a few times. He ended up hurting his back, but they have sent him back here to do physical therapy and he'll be returning to Germany off and on for the next few months. It's a somewhat similiar situation that Sean has with his back, but Sean's is a bit more serious.

Anyway, I was just glad that he was ok. Seeing all the soldiers up in Landstuhl though really made me sad. I saw a lot of physical scars and problems and a lot of mental. I'm sure I didn't even scratch the surface of it though. It was almost overwhelming seeing all of them. Just another sad reminder of what happens during war.

I just wanted to update you guys and let you know I'm home.

Glad you made it back safely. How sad it must've been to see all of the wounded soldiers.

Glad you all made it back ok. And that does sound really sad about seeing all the injuries.

P.S. How is Sean's back doing? I hope he is ok, too.

That is so great! I'm glad he made the trip back with you. I will, as always, continue to pray for our troops that have been hurt.

成功多屬於那些很快做出決定,卻又不輕易變更的人。而失敗也經常屬於那些很難做出決定,卻又經常變更的人.................................................... ............
