Pam, I have no idea what could have happened for him to go in the hospital to begin with. He hates doctors (he gets that from me). When he broke his hand and thumb, I had to force him to go to the hospital. The 14- year old was riding his skateboard down the hill with his eyes closed!

Your recruiter is so correct...NONEWSISGOODNEWS!!  

Good news!!

Comment by ShawnIGGYmama on Monday
Pam, I called his recruiter and was told that they hadn't been called to say that my son would be moved to MRP. I haven't received a call from personal either. The recruiter told me that "no news was good news". He's a tough, driven young man. I guess he's not even going to let pneumonia slow him down.

Let me know.  I want to watch his...and your...progress.  Hugs!!

Call his recruiter.  He can find out with one phone call.

India Company, 3rd Battlion, not sure what platoon, can't believe I forgot to ask him... I was just so happy to hear from him.

Mama Del,

It sounds like your roller coaster ride will be pulling into the station soon.  Which Company/Platoon will you be in?

I'm very happy for you.

Received a call from my son this morning, he has passed his IST and is being transferred today to a new platoon to continue.  Thank you everyone for your kind words and your wisdom.  You will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

I would bet a chocolate cake that he receives your letters.  I also have the Chaplain's info if you need it.

Thanks MommaJan for helping here.  I've been flying all blasted day.  Gack.
