The guy in charge of deployments at Chris's squadron approached him today. He said he heard we were buying a house and having a baby, and Chris told him we were. He told Chris that he didn't want to send him out in early March, like he has planned, because he wanted Chris home with me for a little longer. Chris told him it wasn't necessary but the guy insisted. Chris then volunteered to stay out later and the guy told him that it wasn't necessary. So now Chris gets to deploy 3 weeks later than he had planned to and come home on time! Instead of baby "slater" being only 4ish weeks when he left, he'll be 7 weeks. I'm so happy that Chris gets more time to bond before he leaves!

Also, my biggest fear is another EDS flare and it normally occurs around 6 weeks, so I'm glad Chris will be home with me up until that point.

He just recently switched to this squadron after being at the school house for the past 4 years (he was an instructor on special duty, so he wasn't eligible to deploy while at the school house) and I am beyond impressed. His commander has made a huge point to come and speak to me personally and make me feel like he actually cares about my family.
