He's gone. I thought my husband was coming home from work today. He went to work on Wednesday directly after our call with CCRM and should have returned home this morning. Instead, I got a call at midnight last night that he is being "mandatoried" to a strike team and they are heading down to Ventura.
The headlines are all over the news.
"Monster California Fire Reaches the Ocean and Pushes Towards Malibu"
"Thousands Flee California Wildfires, Naval Base Threatened"
"California Firefighters Battle to Save Homes, 30,000 Acre Wildfire"
A will be arriving at this blazing fire in a few hours. After two days on the ambulance without any sleep and an 8-hour drive to Southern California in an uncomfortable fire rig, he will battle the high winds and fight to save other people's homes and help put out this crazy fire.
Depending on whether the winds die down or pick up, he could be gone for a few days or a few weeks. Hopefully they are able to get this fire contained sooner rather than later.
This kinda puts things into perspective.
Our IVF discussion is on hold for now.
Instead, I'll be praying for my husband's save return home.
