appointment next week with the VA hospital for disability and compensation evaluation. We got a packet yesterday with release forms for the local hospital, dr., and physical therapy. I am hoping this will all soon be over and my princess can pick up and move on with her life. Her ortho still hasn't released her for work or school. She has gone to local Tech Coll. to talk to them about re-enrolling in the accounting degree program she had started before deciding to go into the army. We could not claim her this year on our taxes, so she will be able to get financial aid and that should help. Cross your fingers that this goes well for her. Poor kid needs a break.
