I am so glad to read that your daughter is home and has such a positive, forward thinking/forward moving attitude.  Good for her. 

Please check-in with us occasionally-- remember you are still family to us!

Missy, tell Leslie that this Marine Dad is wishing her the best, fast healing, and that she can achieve anything she wants. She has already achieved much, just by standing tall and stepping onto those yellow footprints.

Thank you Mair!
We picked our daughter up a week ago Friday so she is home.  Can't tell the right leg is broken and the left shin splints are sore but the doctor asked us to get the MRI so he can read it.  He thinks it may have been misread.....  At any rate, she is home and doing well so far but the family and friends have not died down too much and we will see how she is then.  She still at this time plans to go back as soon as she can...

Thank you and all our MFN friends for all of your encouragement and prayers!  They help immensely!

PRM....being that my son only had a 3 week delay i can not imagine how hard this has been for you all. Your daughter will be proud to read all you have written here...and believe it or not....your strength and resolve has given others support!!!! Prayers for God's will and for you all to have strength thru all of this.

Hope you dont mind if i paraphrase from your post? You summed up the marine recruit parent experience so well "I'm just trying to be as supportive as I can be to her while at the same time, I'm getting dizzy from all the jerks and turns of the ride and sometimes ready to get off but I will keep my companion seat on till she gets off."

OOH RAH!!!!! We are all family!!!!
