We just received our first letter from DS. Everything sounded great, he seems to be adjusting well even though things are hard etc. Then in the middle of the letter he wrote, "I am drinking plenty of water but in my exam the doctor noticed that my ankles were swollen and placed me on inactive status." He said he doesn't march but has to read the Bearings book instead. He said he should go back to active status between Monday and Wednesday (today) depending on what the doctor says. I, of course, am a little panicked hoping he doesn't get sent home for something like swollen ankles. The heat and standing long hours does often cause his ankles to swell, has never hurt or hindered him physically, and goes away on its own after a bit. Mine did the same thing when we were at KP all day in the heat when we were dropping him off. Any thoughts or insight on this from anyone? I'd love to be able to sleep before the phone call on Sunday. It's so hard not being able to communicate and find out what's really going on or how seriously KP takes an issue like this. Thanks!
