That's funny! Hey, there's lots of turkeys running around this base, too!

{{{{{{{{{{{{{gentle hugs}}}}}}}}}}}}}} are appreciated and returned.

Good morning L_W.

Zonny please keep us posted on the progress of Operation Cookie. Wolfe needs something to salivate about.

Hey don't be alarmed as I am putting in a baggie (inside the baggie) with apple slices to keep the cookies soft. They should be nice and brown by the time they get there.

Oops. I did. I accidentally closed it and then forgot to reply. I'll find a link to the thread I was talking about if I can if you want it. It got pretty funny. Can't do a search in their General Discussion for some reason.

I'll answer your first question later, unless I can get some sleep.

Are you SURE you want to part with your first race shirt? Don't get me wrong, I'd be honored to have it, but still.....

Don't worry about the size being large. I'm not a small built woman at all. From what I know now, that's a damn good thing....

And my comments on the randomness of life:
Life is a game of inches. Far more so than football, which has rules and structure to guide it. If you stop and think about it, how much of life can swing totally different ways based on fractions of a second in time and space... On one hand, it's a little frightening. On the other, it's... I dunno. Liberating, I suppose. When you recognize that there are all of these variables and uncertainty just ebbing and flowing around us.... There's no point in trying to control or out-think every moment of it, because you just can't... "Let go of your feelings, Luke..." :D

Like my financial analysis professor told me back in grad school... "If you ever get to choose between being smart and being lucky, take 'lucky' every time."
Fractions of a second, inches, luck..... they all played a part. No, I can't let go of the feelings, not even close.

But I think luck played a big part this time.

people can care. It won't hurt me to be inconvenienced for a little while.

SR told me you can't see our picture thread. I didn't realize the connection
you have is as slow as it is. I just want to tell you, that the striped tail
kitty is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen. I've never had a cat.
I may have to reconsider. We might have to go find and kick some
kitty stealing arse when you get home!

I hope you slept well.
Just noticed you avatar.
YES, YOU ARE!

I know I had started to write a post about things I’m thankful for and I still will, but today my mind went in a different direction. I don’t think I could have changed that even if I wanted to. And I didn’t really want to. Something happened earlier that just got me pissed and I started thinking about the Afghani’s who attacked my convoy. If they wanted to kill me they had their chance. Those little Afghani bastards didn’t finish me off when they could. It would have been easy since I was laying there in the middle of a firefight and it wouldn’t have taken much, but they didn’t do it then and they aren’t going to now. Sure, I’ll admit there are many times I wish they had, and that they still would, but they didn’t, so **** them!
The little bastards killed a friend and fellow soldier and I feel to blame for that, and right now I’d like to take it out of their hides. I can’t, but I also know I can’t let them kill me and make Greg’s sacrifice in vain. I hate that he made that sacrifice, and I wish I could undo it, it sucks.

I was sitting here writing this, ranting and angry, ready to rip some Afghani heads off and then I got a couple PM’s from someone here and we exchanged a couple posts in another thread and now I’m sitting here with tears rolling down my face. Kinda hard to stay PO’ed at the world when someone gets under your skin. Sometimes I still have trouble comprehending how people can care so much about someone very few here have ever met. But I’ve done it myself, so I shouldn’t be so surprised.

Sawgrass, those two thoughts almost seem like a contradiction, but they both have some truth to them. I hope your day went well doing for a friend. That sort of thing makes me feel good afterward.
I’ve been told there’s like 100 pics there and my connection sux, so it’s a good thing I’m not worried about them. I didn’t know there were kitty pics in there, but I know which critter you mean. Here’s more pics of her rottenness. And I would love to have some help finding and retrieving both my kitties.

My avatar? Don’t you mean my location? My avatar is a tribute to two friends who died in Afghanistan, one was the person who died trying to save me. The other was a friend I made while I was there and was killed in March.

And as for my location YES, I AM!

Lone_Wolfe,
The kitty pics are great. Wrench keeps telling
me they like guns, wrapping paper, ribbon, crawling
in the safe, and laying on the keyboard. From your pics
I'd say that's accurate.

I have a little dog. She likes to
lay on the computer too.

Yes, I know my thoughts contradict one another.
I was just thinking about all the things that can happen.
I was thinking about one of your posts in here and an accident
that happened where I work.

Then, I was thinking about the body, and will. I have a close
friend who recently went through a double transplant, and I was
thinking about your lungs and heart.

I guess to simplify things, I'm thankful we can have the will to live,
and the power to heal.

Thanks for the kitty pics, I really like the stripes.

Wolfe am I finally seeing a glimpse of that fire that you have always been so full of until this past year? If this is the first spark then let's fan that flame.

I still want to see what you came up with to be thankful for. That should be interesting. Rejoice in your location.

Wrench is right about kitties, and mine love attention. Thatís why I could never take a pic of anything without her getting in the action. I sure miss those critters. Tomorrow Iíll post a couple pics of my other kitty. Sheís 12 and has cancer. Doggies are nice too. Now you and wrench need to show pics of your pets.

Contradicting thoughts are not always wrong. Odd as it may seem both can be true, Iíve seen for myself. I can think of a few examples. Iím sorry to hear about that accident at your work. Was it a friend? I hope your friend with the transplant is doing well. Will to liveÖ I guess I have more than I would have thought I did.

Hey I think about my heart and lungs too, especially when they hurt. Just today I was having chest pains that my doc thinks is just cartilage and internal tissue damage, but now heís not so sure. He said heís going to have an MRI and possible a PET scan done on me to be sure my heart doesnít have anything that didnít show up on the treadmills tests. He said heís most worried about possible scar tissue from when my broken sternum was compressed repeatedly against my heart. Not what I wanted to hear, I was hoping maybe I had just pulled something and he would give me something that would make me relax.

I've been saying since September 11 that I wouldn't let those Afghani bastards win. I made a promise to everyone here that I wouldn't give up. I thought maybe some of it was there then. Maybe?



I started to write this Thursday night, but didnít get to finish, so Iíll leave what I wrote and pick up where I left offÖ

Well folks, Thanksgiving Day is at an end for me. Last year on this day I was in Bagram thinking it would be a rather boring year. Little did I know that in just 2 weeks my world would be rocked and life as I knew it then would be over. I would spend Christmas, New Years, and even Valentineís Day in a hospital far away. I would end up in Baghdad. My memories of Christmas and New Years are almost nonexistent because I was so heavily sedated. But Iím thinking that for all that I have lost I know I still have a lot to be thankful for..

First and foremost has to be that fact that Iím still alive. That in itself is something of a miracle. I have a chance to get better, to beat these demons that own my head right now. I have the chance to give something back to some of you here in some kind of way. Sometimes the physical pain is still so bad I want to curl up and cry and wish I was dead. But I have to be thankful for the fact that I am capable of having pain, because thereís only one way I wouldnít have it right now.

Iím thankful that I finally have a doctor whoís giving me a real chance to recover. I know I pretty much lost about 6 months of recovery time and I'm just now back to where I was around April, but now I think I'm finally free of the bad reaction to the drugs and can start progressing. It will just take longer than it should have, but we all know, better late than never. Iím also thankful that he kept me here instead of sending me home. This way Iím avoiding VA issues for as long as possible and just may be able to be recovered to work at least in some capacity when I get back.

Iím thankful that my family is all still around, even though we arenít really close. I know I donít talk much about my family in here, they prefer not to know stuff like whatís happening in my life right now. They would rather have the illusion that all is well and it was just a scratch, and itís much easier on me to allow them that. Especially my Mother, whoís in poor health herself and doesnít need the added worry.

Iím also thankful for the progress Iíve made so far is dealing with the demons in my head.. Apparently accepting that I almost died was important to me on a subconscious level, because although I thought I didnít care it owned my nightmares for months. Iím also thankful that my shrink told me the other day that my doctor was right about it being a reaction to the meds I was on that caused my psychosis. Among other things it means she wonít try again to put me back on that crap. It also means weíre on the same page in other areas finally. I still donít like or trust her, but I work with what I have.

Iím thankful for people like Zonny whoís torments me with the cookies she wants to send me, along with Mandy and the robe I already have. And others who have sent me a couple things and the many of you who have offered and been declined. Even if I decline your generosity is still appreciated because you donít owe me a thing yet you reach out to me with kindness.

Iím extremely thankful for all of you here and the time and thoughtfulness youíve shown me in taking the time to write me and advise me, encourage me, help me sort things out, and point out when Iím thinking wrong. I know Iím doing lots of that. You all have heard me say this before, but itís important to me. What you people are doing in here is helping me more than the shrinks who get paid to help me. I really owe you all something.

Iíve thought of a couple other things but didnít get them written down before they slipped my mind, and Iím out of time for tonight so theyíll have to wait.

Iím also thankful that itís knock-out night and that my doc does that for me since Iím still not sleeping on my off nights. Good Night!
