rlp on thursday + more letters!

You read right...I got THREE letters from that boy today!

But before I get into that, I wanted to let you all know that RLP (room, locker, personnel) inspection is on Thursday. This is a BIG deal and often results in a lot of roll-outs. This is what the DI put Andrew in charge of preparing his class for, which is a good sign, but nothing is guaranteed. PLEASE keep him in your prayers this week! And me too...I've been so anxious about it. If he doesn't pass on Thursday (which it's rare to do so) he'll get another chance on Saturday. If he fails on Saturday, he will roll into holding, which pushes back his graduation date. We don't want that to happen. Once he passes, he'll transition into a more academic-focused routine.

Regardless of the outcome, I'LL GET A CALL THIS WEEKEND! I can't tell you how excited I am about that. He mentioned in his letter that once Indoc is over, he may get to call a few times a week, but definitely on Sundays. Yay!

Now onto the letters. He went to the doctor on Monday of last week and used the time in the waiting room to write me a three page letter (!!!). I loved it. He had the opportunity to write two others throughout the week/weekend and they just now made it to my mailbox. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there's more where that came from :) A few highlights:
  • What he thought was a sinus infection was actually bronchitis - it wasn't bad enough hold him back at the time and that was a week ago. The fact that I haven't heard from him means all is well, but keep him in your prayers nonetheless.
  • He got 20 minutes of hygiene time (shower, shave, brush teeth, etc) and was SO excited. Apparently, that sort of thing is a luxury.
  • He got his BCGs (birth control glasses). They're military glasses that are so ugly that they're called birth control. Sure can't wait to see those.
  • He's starting to get to know many of the guys in his class and seems to have a lot of respect for them.
  • He still has no regrets. Praise the Lord.
That's that for now. PRAY PRAY PRAY. I mean it, folks.

  1. When Nick classed up, elections for the "body" had already taken place, so the DI assigned him RLP Assist. That means our guys are working together to prepare the class! They will pass with flying colors! Two heads are better than one right?
