hoping to find some help

my husband started his MEB process in late october after being told by his neurologist for 17 months that he needed one. he suffers with severe, chronic migraines and botox has been somewhat of a saving grace to him. he gets it every 90 days, but it wears off halfway through and then he has relpax to take when that happens. either way, my husband received his findings this morning and he was found fit for duty. to say we are devastated is an understatement. he goes to work every day and does his job and achieves so much - but because he hasn't slacked off, this has effected the DOD's decision to keep him as fit. i'm guessing you have to start slacking off in order to be found unfit?

there is a part of the command's statement where they asked his chief HOW his migraines have negatively effected his job, and instead of stating how much work he has missed or that he almost lost his vision because of the numerous medications for this condition, etc - he put down that he is an outstanding sailor and can still do his job. when the DOD was asked why they found him fit for duty, they copied and pasted his chief's statement. my husband is speaking to his chief now, but something tells us he read what they were asking for incorrectly.

so here is our situation:

number one? we are contesting this. no questions asked, we are fighting this.

but we want to know if anyone else has contested their decision to be found fit and had a positive outcome.

we were told this morning by the PEBLO that we have ten days to contest this. we have a lawyer lined up, but she isn't in the same state as we are - and the only form of communication we have with her is e-mail. does that sound weird to anyone else? something of this importance, and no way to contact them other than via email?

what can we expect?
