Been a little while since writing, been super busy with no wife here to help. Well she was doing awesome at pre-BOLC, she was having a blast. However getting out of the shower the other day(day before actual BOLC) she slipped. She fell and broke her coccyx(tail bone) and displaced it.
She described the pain as tremendous , and the worst pain she has ever had(3kids). I convinced her to go to the hospital, where Xrays revealed the break and displacement. Well as you would think this makes the PT test impossible. As we speak her options pretty much include, attend this BOLC and wait till the next class to attempt the PT test which is after her recovery period.
She could attempt to waive her recovery and take the PT test at the end of this class but if she has a nogo, they could push for a chapter. So that is off the board as an option LOL. So far her option is to push through this class while hitting the gym as much as possible, then crank out an awesome PT score with the next class. And then continue on with her career.
We are hoping for smooth healing, and a great recovery. So we can put all this behind us. I feel so terrible for her because she was doing so well and adjusting to the Army way better than I thought she would. So everyone knows, if you are injured at BOLC, and you aren't a dirtbag, and did not injure yourself while being a moron, they will work with you and get you set up for success. Have a good one people, and good luck to all of you there now and going soon. Thank you all for your service.
