Dad's job, mom's cancer
« on: January 30, 2011, 10:40:25 PM »
The company my dad works for is considering 4 different offers to buy it. If the company is sold, which it probably will be, then my dad is a prime candidate for a layoff. In one more year of employment, the company will have to offer dad and spouse insurance upon retirement. They like to lay people off and re-hire at lower rates. My family will already has a tough time paying for certain things.

My mom might have cancer again. One doctor wanted her to come in to be checked out, and there was a look exchanged between the nurse and doctor, and there are fibroid growths around the area. My mom took medication to prevent one form than can lead to higher chances of this particular form of cancer. Biopsies happen this week. Accuracy, and preferably no-cancer results, please.

Also, really want my brother to be able to get a class at another community college because this one class will keep him from transferring to a university in Fall. He is older than I am and has no BS and even less of a job than I do.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

First biopsy today. So far, not so good looking. Tech was too sympathetic and was talking about the initial reason for biopsy probably being cancer. Other form of biopsy on Thursday.

Some abnormalities: Benign or Malignant is the question I guess? She goes back the first week of March for final results.

Domine miserere- O Lord, have mercy
There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

Quick praise report. They opened a late start class. He just registered. Mom and he are ordering the book now.

Great is the Lord and worthy of praise, for He has shown mercy on His child, my brother, and opened this door for him.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
