    Jana called at 7:16 pm. She got to use her cell. :D We got to talk for 4min. 39 secs. She said she is fine. She broke for a moment, but regained her composure and sounded good.

    She said she didn't shower for 3 days. She can't shave her legs or underarms.

    She has blisters because her boots were too big. She had to go to medical because they became infected. She got new boots. (She wears a child's size 3 or 4).

    She said one girl went to hospital yesterday after a three mile run and will probably be discharged. She said another cries everyday and says she is depressed and wants to go home.

    She said everyone is pretty cool and ds's are really tough.

    She is in her fourth day of basic. She left on Sunday, went to reception on Monday, so I guess she started basic on 8/7/08.

    She says a letter is coming with a list of things she needs.

    It was great to hear her voice. :D

    No address or platoon yet, she didn't want to waste the talk time when we will be getting a letter soon.

    I'm sure that helped to put your mind at ease. She must be a tiny little thing with feet that size.

    Thanks all.
    Loth---she is tiny. Except for her thighs and butt!!!LOL. She is under 5' although she swears she is 5' even. Her hands are the size of an 8 year old. I swear her pinky toe is less than 1/4 of an inch long. The nail on it is smaller than a pencil eraser.
