knot in my stomach

Jeremy came home from a Navy gig last night a little upset but was tired and just went to bed. This morning he came and got me up early to talk about the knot in his stomach. Apparently they were talking about the 5 month tour they have coming up next spring and Jeremy was told by the LPO that he is on it. So now what. I told Jeremy that he needs to go in and talk to his bosses and let them know the situation with Lorenzo. Last time Jeremy was gone for 3 1/2 weeks Lorenzo game undone, I do not even want to think about what 5 months would be like. Any kind of change is very hard on him. We have trouble with the transition from the weekend to school days, regular full school days to his short day on Wed. Not to mention the days Jeremy is gone all day. I am trying not to get to worked up about it. After all, Jeremy still needs to go and talk to his MC, but I am a little concerned. Maybe we will be getting out and going back to life on the outside.

Did he get a chance to ask anyone about it today?

The most I did without David was 2 1/2 months, not 5! No amount of time is wonderful, but it's so much worse for the kids. They just don't understand why Daddy is gone. My heart goes out to you right now. The waiting to find out is the worst, but tell Jeremy to keep on them and get his way. I really hope you guys can get someone with some understanding who decides to keep Jeremy home. Please keep us up to date!

Are you guys in the exceptional family member program? Not sure if it would help, but it is worth a shot.
Also, when I was reading the news today I saw this:

Life outside the Navy is tempting, but with medical problems, whether mental or physical - sometimes the service is better - Health Insurance is costing us a FORTUNE and that is just for our portion of the premium after my work pays most of it.

Keep us posted!
