Semper Gumby!

  Although I am really grateful for my husbands career in the Corps, it can sometimes throw a wrench into plans. I thought by now I would know not to make plans when it comes to future planning, but apparently I needed to be reminded how life as a military wife really works. Josh got orders to Hawaii, in April. My referral is for the high risk breast oncology unit at UNC Chapel Hill. Talk about opposite ends of the country. At this point, I am praying to the Marine Corps Gods that his orders could maybe, possibly, hopefully be changed or maybe delayed so that I can continue being a patient at UNC. I am submitting a EFMP (Exceptional Family Member Program) package tomorrow in hopes that maybe they can help us out. Honestly, I am not holding my breath, but I am praying. I really feel goofy putting in for EFMP, because, other than my family history, I am healthy. There are people that legitimately need the Marine Corps assistance for their family members medical I one of those people? I am not sure this package will get approved...I still am not sure I feel right about doing this in the first place. I usually don't like to ask anyone for help..but right now, I am giving in and asking. I have done research and UNC seems like the right fit for me, I really don't feel comfortable putting it off and finding a new place. My feelings in this situation don't really matter much though, so I am just going to let it work out the way it needs to work out. If we go to Hawaii, I'll find another surgeon at one point. Semper Gumby!


  1. Everything will work out in the end no matter where your life leads you and your family. I will keep you in my prayers. You're doing the right things...

    1. I know it will! I am excited for whatever path is provided for us! We'll just have to see! Hurry up an wait! :)
