First Phone Call
I got a call from Dustin this week. He was so hoarse he could hardly speak. I did not even know it was him at first. In addition we only had 30 seconds to talk. I was really worried after talking with him but on Saturday I got a letter he wrote after we had spoke and I feel much better. It sounds like he is doing well. I do not think he really knew what he was getting into but with out a doubt, he does now. He has told me it is the hardest thing he has ever done. I told him something Dad used to tell me about football when it was so hard I did not think I could go on. Dad would say "Just remember one thing, No matter how hard or bad it gets They can not eat you." Well Dustin has told me, he has had to remind himself of that and it is comforting to know that at least they can not eat him.
