So i decided to give a call to my son's sen DI as he said if at any time mom you would like to check on my progress you can always contact him..yesterday was that day..as a mom you know when you get a feeling about your child, well i did, it turns out he has an upper resp. infection.
also the ssgt mentioned my son had an outburst a week earlier because his head was pounding so bad, of course they believed it to be stressed related, unfortunately they do not know each child when they arrive at boot camp and if they knew my son at all, they would have thought better of it.
im not complaining as they did send him to the dr. the dr obviously didnt see what was coming, my call today was from the capt. your son is fine mam, he has pneumonia and is being sent to evaluation holding, being given very strong meds and resting well..he will stay there until he recovers completely, he even let me speak with him..he sounded so distant and drained, although he says, i was really sick mom, but feeling better today..
his former di called me as well to inform me, they are very good with that i must say..i appreciated the concern and the care for both my son and i as his mom, unfortunatley he is being dropped to another platoon upon his recovery and mikey says thats fine Mom, not worried..my sadness thickend when i came to find a letter from my son this evening in the mail...mom, i havent been doing so well, the pressure sometimes is so overbearing my head has been pounding from all the yelling and feeling exausted ( im assuming this is the sickness taking its from)
i feel like no matter how hard im trying or how much i want this, maybe this just want meant to be.....wow, i havent stopped crying since, fell asleep and now its 1:30 am and i find myself here looking for some reassurance, i feel so helpless, my baby is so sick and i cannot do anything, i know he is being cared for , but there is nothing *I* can do...so sad for him...
