Patrick finally got the internet in his can. I talked to him Monday after he got off work for a little while. Since it's relatively unrestricted from his personal computer, he was able to get on GMail and we could GChat. We found out that the internet in Iraq isn't all that great, and several of our messages didn't make it through to the other side. He complained that his small pox vaccine was getting gross and was somewhat painful, but insisted that he was taking care of it properly. I updated him on the dogs on how much they miss him and how I show them his picture every night. I haven't heard back from him since, so hopefully this afternoon will bring a phone call or an email. Keep praying for him, it's going to be a long year!
