Still no word on J being able to re-enlist. He did find out why his down range SFC said no to recommending his re-enlistment. One reason was me. Yes, really it was me. Why? Well he said that I had too many doctor appointments. Okay so yes I'm very sorry I'm infertile but I do need my husband there for the appointments where he had to provide his specimen. Excuse me for wanting to start a family. They can't legally use this against him in the context of my infertility but they can say that my health is an issue and he is a liability because of it. I don't request that J take me to my appointments except for the infertility ones and I've gone to quite a few of those alone too. He wasn't around for the SIS or many of my ultrasounds. So much for the Army being progressive. I have requested use of the family car for my appointments and his bosses get pissy that I need the car for appointments. Well sorry as far as I know there is nothing in his contract saying he has to have a car or a cell phone for that matter but the Army gets mighty pissy when the cell phone is shut off or out of range. He only has to have a contact number, mainly a home phone, for them to reach him.
Today I have the IUI. J had to explain to them it was a procedure that he had to be there for. Well he damn well better be there for his part. I'm sorry but I'm not letting just anyone be my baby's father!
