Fall Fun and a Pumpkin Run

Well it's been a bit, so time for an update. Nothing really new with school except externship things. I sent in 3 externship applications--2 in the Seattle, WA area and 1 in the Portland, OR. I have a phone interview for one of them at 9am on Thursday, so needless to say I am a tad bit nervous. Other than that clinic, class, and thesis are keeping me hopping.

For Gib, he went to see an orthopedic surgeon about 2 weeks ago; the news was not good. They said there is nothing they can do for him and are sending his medical file for review. If all goes according to how we think it will go (which honestly could mean nothing when it comes to the Army) he will be medically retired or discharged. It could take up to a year for us to know what they have in store for him. If they do decide to keep him, he will be given a new MOS. He was also placed on the most restrictive physical profile, meaning that he is not allowed to do many many many things, and the only cardio he can do is walk or swim. He is also non-deployable. So, I guess for now, we are playing the waiting game.

October has been a busy month for both of us. For me, I attended a wedding for one of my classmates.

And did a 5K through a Pumpkin Patch/Corn Maze, and then got to go pick a pumpkin :)

Gib and I have also been busy making our respective apartments ready for Halloween.

That's all for now!
