I don't normally send out e-mails like this, but I have a friend in need. My friend _____ that I met in Georgia moved here not long after us when her husband got stationed at Ft. _____ as well. Her husband, ____, is a Ranger and was deployed over the last few months but was sent home early (2 1/2 weeks ago) due to an injury. He was on patrols and stepped on an IED. He is now at a very good hospital in _______ and is recovering from multiple surgeries and skin grafts. His right leg was hurt the worst, with broken bones and missing muscle tissue. This was the first chance my friend had to call me because she has been tending to her husband and concerned family members. I'm just asking that you guys would pray that his rehab is successful and that he would be able to walk without needing a cane or brace. They are both in pretty good spirits all things considered and they find out Monday if ____ will be able to start rehab. It could have been a lot worse so they are very thankful that ____ is home and safe.
Anyways, I'm sure you guys know the drill and thank you so much for taking the time to lift up my friends.
I love you all very much and feel free to call!
Like she said, you know the drill...
