Ahoy, all you semi-colons!
I just wanted to share some good news with you; I have received orders to be the Executive Officer (that's "second in command" for you non-military types out there)in a ship.
To me this really means several things;
1. I am doing well health-wise (but I will not become complacent nor will I take life for granted)
2. Despite the cancer, my military career is still on track and my Rich Uncle Sam continues to have full faith and confidence in my abilities to perform my duties.
3. Cancer is not an end. It is a detour. Some detours are longer and bumppier than others, but we must keep moving down our road.
4. If I can help someone down their road, then it's my responsibility as a person to do that.
I'm probably heading out in March and I have some schools to attend that will take me off the discussions for a couple of weeks at a shot, but rest assured that, until then, I'll keep up my lively banter - I don't want Stacy getting bored or emily to start considering eating a twinkie, or Vincent to get a craving for a glass of milk, or...
