Lady Glock you are a good person.

Has she said anything more about you doing your relaxing at home? I am really happy to hear she seems to care about your wellbeing.

Yep, she did, but not what you're hoping to hear. She said they're trying to get the MRE done something this week, and if I have to get anything re-repaired I'll have to go elsewhere for the surgery. If that happens the doc is going to yank my clearance and send me out of here on a medevac. For that matter the doc said if I have to leave here for treatment for any reason I'm getting sent home.

But if I don't have to fly then my doc doesn't want me to. My PA said that staying here would be better than any more flying, because she thinks if I haven't done any damage then I will if I keep flying around. So if I don't have to carry anything heavier than a laptop computer I'm not supposed to.

Hiya, Wolfe!

Are you getting settled in enough that you aren't just terrified to be there now?

Hiya Bob!

The answer to your question is "Yes, and No". The reason for that is I'm still seeing an Afghani with an AK behind every building, rock, T-wall, etc, and I'm still freaked out as hell. The other side of it is that I've told this base I'm on doesn't get attacked very often at all, maybe a couple times a year. Quite a change from averaging twice a week. Plus the room I'm moving into shortly is in a fairly strong building. If we do get shelled while I'm in there I'll just shelter in place. I'm starting to feel a sense of relief when I think about that, but not about being around Afghanis.

Actually they have, if you think about it. Basically, unless something forces me to leave this base for treatment, I stay. But if I have to get sent off for anything, I'm gone to the States. My doc wants to keep all traveling to a minimum because that's so painful for me, and could easily aggravate my injury.

Engineer better start doing some hand exercises. I'm sure after about 36 hours his hands will start cramping.

Well, I'm betting after a while you'll just say "screw it" and you won't be freaked out about it as much. Have you seen a shrink yet?

When are they going to do an MRI on you?

Almost anything could have been heard over Auburn's defense.

You are right that this was not the answer I wanted but it does make sense to keep you off aircraft for a good while. If you can get comfortable enough to heal there then we may as well get used to the idea. I do hope they meant it about shipping you home if you have to leave that base.

This part worries me. How can you relax enough to rest and heal if you are so terrified everywhere you go? That is good news about your base being safer than that place you were at in Iraq. I kept waiting to hear that you had gotten injured again or killed there.

Wolfe, did you write this? It seems awfully fitting.

1 O God, have mercy on me,
for people are hounding me.
My foes attack me all day long.
2 I am constantly hounded by those who slander me,
and many are boldly attacking me.
3 But when I am afraid,
I will put my trust in you.
4 I praise God for what he has promised.
I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?
What can mere mortals do to me?

5 They are always twisting what I say;
they spend their days plotting to harm me.
6 They come together to spy on meó
watching my every step, eager to kill me.
7 Donít let them get away with their wickedness;
in your anger, O God, bring them down.

8 You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.
9 My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help.
This I know: God is on my side!

10 I praise God for what he has promised;
Yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised.
11 I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?
What can mere mortals do to me?

12 I will fulfill my vows to you, O God,
and will offer a sacrifice of thanks for your help.
13 For you have rescued me from death;
you have kept my feet from slipping.
So now I can walk in your presence, O God,
in your life-giving light. (Ps 56 NIV)

Oh, don't worry, I'll take turns rubbing his feet long enough for him to work the cramps back out of his hands.

But your suggestion is a good one. In a way I'm saying "screw it, go ahead and shoot me again, and I don't even have armor on!" But something tells me that's not the kind of 'screw it' you want me to say..... I've seen 2 different combat stress counselors so far, no word yet if one of them is going to be my 'regular'. I like the one I saw today better so far. She came to the hospital and talked to me there, because I hurt my knee last night and can't use crutches, so I stayed there for last night and today. The one I saw a couple days ago seemed pretty good too, he got to see me shortly after a bunch of explosions had me thinking we were taking IDF, but it was our guys practicing.



They have to bring in some equipment that they don't keep here, it should be shortly though.

I'm hoping I'll do like Bob said and finally start to relax, then maybe I can make up some of the ground I've lost the last couple months.

Hell, I kept waiting to BE injured or killed. Still do, just not by rockets and mortars.

I took it to mean he was asking God to protect him from his enemies. It's a bit late for me to ask that of God, at least from the enemies that shot me.

Wow, that's really sweet of you!

He's got some nice prizes this time around. Of course the way my luck goes, I'll win a gun.



Some good news, I finally get to move into my (semi) permanent room tomorrow. It's smaller than my CHU in Iraq, but it seems comfortable. Someone else approves of it. too.

Okie Memorial Area


This base doesn't have a physical therapist here, but my 'doc' arranged for someone with a background in physical therapy and personal training to work with me. He did my baseline today, and said my range of motion isn't good, but isn't terrible. The he told me to push against him, but stop when it hurt. I laughed and told him there's no time when it doesn't hurt. So he clarified by telling me to stop when it hurt more from the pressure I was applying. He did that with me starting my arms out to the side, overhead, down to my side, etc, and my goal was to push my arms out to the front. To say I didn't do well would be an understatement. He also tested my strength pulling away and said that's pretty good. Probably because it doesn't hurt much to pull, as long as I don't get crazy.

He's not happy with my breathing, and said he'd have to talk with my doc about some ideas he had. He did ask if I had a heating pad, which I do, thanks to a good friend here. He told me to bring that to the next session.

Yes, that is right. But you keep saying you see Afghanis behind every rock, truck, etc, so I think you still need God's protection.

David wrote this Psalm when he was running away from Saul, who was trying to kill him. He fled to Gath, which was Goliath's hometown. They captured him and he pretended to be crazy. He let saliva run down his beard and acted insane so they wouldn't kill him. He didn't talk to them, but talked to God in this Psalm and did indeed ask for his protection. And God gave it to him. I know God is protecting you also.



Wow, that's really sweet of you!

So far, it sounds like you are pretty well set with people who seem to know what they are doing and are concerned about you...Yay!! You have been on my mind so often and I've just had an overwhelming desire to beg you to hop a plane and come back Stateside. The things you wrote today are putting my mind at ease. I pray (and I know everyone else does, too) that you continue to make progress and find people who can help you the most.

God, please give all of those who are there to help Wolfe your wisdom in how to help her most...In Jesus' name, amen.

Hi Sweetheart! I read this today and immediately thought of you. Imagine that! The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you. Take care Sweetheart.

Yep. The guy who's going to be my physical terrorist admitted he didn't want to mess with me, and he thinks he's in over his head, but he said he'd do his best. Today he had me sit with my heating pad across my chest for a while before I started stretching. He said it made a small difference. I'll take any difference at all.

Trust me, I've begged myself to say the hell with what I said I'd do and get on a plane home! At times I don't know why I haven't.

Thank you for that prayer, hope God's listening.

Errrrrrrr, think he might have forgot about the protection part for at least a bit a few years ago............

But if you take your thought a little farther, we all need that protection. It could be from rockets and mortars, AK-47's, or muggers and drunk drivers. Any of them could injure you or kill you just as dead as an AK could.


David wrote this Psalm when he was running away from Saul, who was trying to kill him. He fled to Gath, which was Goliath's hometown. They captured him and he pretended to be crazy. He let saliva run down his beard and acted insane so they wouldn't kill him. He didn't talk to them, but talked to God in this Psalm and did indeed ask for his protection. And God gave it to him. I know God is protecting you also.
The difference is I'm not pretending to be crazy, I just am.

Do you think he'll keep on protecting me after I've done whatever he kept me here to do?


I'll be happy to take it off your hands.
I'm sure you would.

I hope his ideas work.
I hope so too. He doesn't seem to think he'll make much difference, but he's willing to try. Or is it, he was ordered to try......

I can't help you there. People die and get hurt in war. If God protected all of them the army would be invincible, wouldn't it? My uncle went down on a sinking ship in WWII, and I'm sure people were praying for his protection. I don't know how God chooses to protect or not protect, but I know it's not because he doesn't love you. After all, he allowed his Son to die in agony on the cross for the sins of mankind.

Yes, that is right. But you keep saying you see Afghanis behind every rock, truck, etc, so I think you still need God's protection.
Even if I really don't, it doesn't feel that way. I walk around here just sure I'm about to get shot by the next Afghani I see, even though they don't actually have anything to shoot me with. So should we pray for your protection or for you to find peace? Do you feel that way when you are stateside in public places?

But if you take your thought a little farther, we all need that protection. It could be from rockets and mortars, AK-47's, or muggers and drunk drivers. Any of them could injure you or kill you just as dead as an AK could.

That's right. Which is why we should ALL pray for protection. I wonder how many times God has protected us and we didn't even know it?

David wrote this Psalm when he was running away from Saul, who was trying to kill him. He fled to Gath, which was Goliath's hometown. They captured him and he pretended to be crazy. He let saliva run down his beard and acted insane so they wouldn't kill him. He didn't talk to them, but talked to God in this Psalm and did indeed ask for his protection. And God gave it to him. I know God is protecting you also.
The difference is I'm not pretending to be crazy, I just am.

I could see that coming a mile away.
Do you think he'll keep on protecting me after I've done whatever he kept me here to do? Til the end of time. Even if you die you'll be with Him.

Just don't take that dying thing into your own hands.

I hope his ideas work.

I hope so too. He doesn't seem to think he'll make much difference, but he's willing to try. Or is it, he was ordered to try......
The heating pad thing makes sense. The heat increases the blood flow and makes you more limber. It might not hurt for you to put the heating pad on there at night some too, if you haven't been already. I'm sure the cat wouldn't mind it either.
