I made it to the Navy Exchange on Tuesday in time to secure a copy of the Miracle DVD (the exchange closes at 1900; I didn't get off duty until just before 1800 that day). I've already watched it twice - and both times, I broke down and cried at the most emotional moments. I haven't even delved into the second disc, which has lots of extra goodies.
I also saw "Shrek" for the first time on Monday night...I'm definitely looking forward to the sequel.
The sunburn is getting better; it doesn't hurt anymore to put a shirt on. I was actually able to PT with it each of the last two days.
No further word on the clearance. I continue to wait and wonder...
