S-E-T-H, Gooooooo, Seth!

The Dilberian Cheerleader

This video really needs no further commentary--except to say, if someone knows how I can re-orient it, please let me know. (It was filmed on my Olympus digital camera, so pretty low-tech).

Bryan and Seth were surprised today by a visit from their fellow platoon member Garrick Zornes. Garrick was in Seth's squad, so he was on patrol with Seth when the IED went off. He told the guys some details they didn't know, and it was pretty rough for them to hear. Garrick is on leave and came up from North Carolina specifically to see Bryan and Seth. Thanks, Garrick.

The only other thing of note is that Seth received two units of blood today because his hematocrit and hemoglobin levels were so low. We hope this will give him a bit more energy. When you see how much drainage is going into the wound VACs and consider Seth has had eight surgeries since we've been here, it's not surprising he needed blood.
