This morning after I wake up and am checked over and allowed to walk around I went into the girl’s room and she’s sound asleep with Mandy hugged tightly in her good arm. I didn’t have the heart to wake her so I picked up a book and sat there reading for a while.

I swear Mandy had a little smile on her face when I left the clinic with her……
See there, that's one life you affected already. So glad to have you around yet.

Thank you for sharing that story. I'm glad Mandy is a 'goodwill' ambassador.

Until you said she was leaving tomorrow I was just about to buy another one

If that girl had squeezed any harder I might have needed another one anyway.

And you're welcome. It was worth it to go without her for the night.

LW, sweetie, you are having positive affects on other peoples lives, and making progress with you own life. It is great to hear that you are making progress. All of us on here know that you can and will whip this problem.

You just keep fighting the good fight, and we will try to give you all the support, that you need. You can win this.



I am sure, that we can find another stuffed kitty, if you need or want one.

Sister, I think the key to understanding your friends ultimate sacrifice may be found here... The Soldiers Creed-

The Soldiers Creed
I am an American soldier.
I am a warrior and a member of a team. I serve the people of the United States and live the Army values.

I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough,trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment, and myself.
I am an expert and I am a professional.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
I am an American soldier.

And those people you see standing near you just before you fall out...Angels.

Nice kitty story. Get well soon.

and now...

Company, FALL IN!
PRESENT ARMS

The Soldiers Creed is definitely a huge part of why he did what he did. The other part of the reason is because that’s the kind of person he was. I like to think I’d have done the same thing if our situations had been reversed. I know and understand that, but I still wish he’d stayed down for just a bit longer. I also know that anyone with any humanity in them would wish the same thing. The part of that’s human is what feels the regret and even guilt about it. I’m dealing with it a better now that I have been, it’s just taking time. And I am taking what you folks are saying to heart.

I like the thought of the people standing around me being GT’ers that are with me in spirit. But I’ll take Angels. When we sleep we are at our most vulnerable. That’s even more the case when I’m in an anesthesia induced sleep that no nightmare or external event can wake me from. I’ll tell you that’s it’s a bit scary, and those visions are very comforting. I had another 2 nights ago the same night Mandy was on loan. As the drugs started to take effect I felt myself trying to fight them off and then a hand pressed on my shoulder and someone there said “Relax, I’ll keep your back”. I hope things like that keep happening.

I’m working on the getting well part.

I can tell I’m making progress in recent days. I’ve been off all the drugs for a couple weeks that I was reacting so badly to and getting sleep every other night. It may be forced sleep, but that doesn’t seem to matter. I don’t get so exhausted that I feel defeated nearly as much. I’m really tired now because I couldn’t sleep at all last night, but I know in a little while that will change. Having the narcotics and anti-depressants out of my system is letting me start to see things clearer too. For the past several months I knew the pills were wreaking havoc with me, but didn’t realize just how badly. Now I think I should belt the docs who just kept making me take them even though I had a few really bad reactions even before the one that landed me in the hospital this last time. I think I’m finally going to turn the corner on these demons and start to win the battle. I don’t expect it to be easy or happen overnight, and the nightmares haven't let up yet, but I’m not giving up. The prayers and moral support I get here is really making a difference.

I don’t need another kitty, at least not yet. Mandy’s my baby and even though I’ve already matted her poor fur with saltwater she’s special to me. I didn’t mind loaning her on a night I was going to be out like a light anyway, the smile on that girl’s face was worth it.

Glad that you're doing much better! I just wanted to check in and let you know that I am also still pulling for ya!

B.


P.S. I wonder if the one "holding your hand" is your fallen friend?

I have known her for years and I'll admit I cried when I saw for myself the effect this has had on her.

It makes me want to cry in a different way when I see what you people are doing here. You people are incredible.










Slobberchops that is a nice looking Shepherd.

Silent_Runner, my eyes spring a leak also, everytime I see some encouraging signs in the posts by Lone_Wolfe. Speaking for myself only, I know that I am not incredible. In LW, I see a lady, that needs moral support, prayers and encouragement. She is doing the tough part, we are only lending a hand to her. With what Lone_Wolfe, has done in protecting out country and my family, I would be a real scuz bucket, if I weren't willing to help her in any way I could. LW, is an inspiration for many, and she will win this battle. It is just a hand up, not a hand out, and many of us need that at times.

LW, these are for you.

Keep fighting the good battle. You are making progress and I know that is a very encouraging sign. You keep fighting the good battle, and I will keep up the prayers, good thoughts and moral support. I know that the others on here will also.

Slobberchops, very nice looking dog.

Wish I'd slept last night. I had one of "those" nights. All nightmare, no sleep.


Hope you sleep good! Have a good dream for me.

I wouldn't mind having her or maybe some of you GT'er here watching over me right now. Last night was a sleepless one, the nightmares made sure of that. Today's being a difficult one, but I'm taking you people's advice. One second, one minute, one hour at a time I'm fighting off the ugly thoughts.

I'm not going to give up today, I swear it! Too many of you folks praying for and pulling for me to let that happen.
