JackrabbitMom,

Read the response I gave to Danielle.   I am also sending you a friend request.

Who were your travel plans with?  The hotel will def be understanding and will change your reservations without any fees.  I have a couple of options to help you.

The best thing you can do is write write and write.  Tell him you are NOT disappointed in him a zillion times.  Have everyone he knows write to him with ONLY encouraging words and uplifting stories.

Hello - newbie here.  Just got a call from my recruit and he has a stress fracture and is being moved to MRP. Feeling kind of helpless and also very disappointed as we had all our travel plans made for graduation in January. He will probably be at MRP for 5 weeks. I'm looking for any advice, information, support, etc. I can get. Thanks.

Danielle,

You will find it almost impossible to find a better group of people.  We have all been through our roughest times on these pages, only to find out later that those rough times weren't that rough, after all.

While I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend, in the end, everything will be fine.  My best advice to you is to go back to the Injury and Illness Main page and go through previous discussions.  Make sure you hit the "View All" button toward the bottom right side.  You will find information and answers to questions that you don't even know you have, yet.

Also, go to the top of this page, hover your mouse over "Connect and Share" and click on both blogs and poems.  Search different things having to do with being hurt, Crucible, what to send, and such.  Is he at SD or PI?  

I am sending you a friend request.  Please look for it in your "inbox."  

Prayers and hugs to you and your heart.

All will be well.  I'd bet a chocolate cake on it.

Ah Danielle,
It is very difficult to be happy for or with others when your heart is breaking. You came to the right place, though, this group understands all too well. In your letters, just continue to be strong, upbeat, remind him how proud you are of him. I have no doubt you both will make it just fine.

Hi all, my boyfriend got injured with only 17 hours of the crucible left.....he was taken out and will have to stay another 4 to 6 weeks while his hairline fracture in his tibia heals...I feel so terrible for him...I know he must feel absolutely terrible...he was SO CLOSE...I will get his new address on Monday. Do any of you have any tips on what to send in my letters? I know I need to stay motivational...but I'm feeling so down, I have no idea what to say. I had to join these pages...because the pages I'm a part of are full of all of the proud parents of their new marines...and I feel so terrible...

I accepted your friend request. My son is in San Diego. He arrived on Monday December 1st.

Hi Wendy,

It IS hard.  You've gone from being a live support to your son to not knowing anything.  They've whacked those apron strings with a weed cutter without you even knowing that the plugged the stupid contraption into an outlet.  

If I could tell you anything, it would be to not worry.  Go ahead, I can see you laughing at me; but I mean it.  He's in good hands and one of the safest places possible.  I do know that if a situation is dire, they invite the parents.  I guess it's a good thing that you weren't invited??  

I'm sending you a friend request and a brief message.  Look for it in your "Inbox".  

Warm hugs to you.

We understand and we all care.
