Last night Rick brought in a package that the UPS guy left on my front doorstep. I open it up and found an assortment of M&Ms and gifts from my sister Elaine, and my daughter Jesse. Apparently when Jesse visited her Aunt Elaine last week they gathered up a bunch of things that would make me happy and mailed it here to Arizona. I was very happy to find really big bags of different kinds of M&Ms and especially my favorite…the dark chocolate. I’m eating them now with my pumpkin spice flavored coffee. Little things like this makes me so happy. Last night Rick had his MRI to see how much worse the disc in his neck is so that he can go ahead with his surgery on Nov 29th. He’s so ready to have this done. We found out yesterday that I’m having another surgery tomorrow morning to have the power port put in my chest so that’s going to get my treatments going too. The first thing I really need to have done is that pet scan though. Until that’s done I still won’t know if these tumors have migrated to any other body parts and that’s bugging me a lot. Every time I have an ache or a pain anywhere I wonder if it’s another tumor. I’ll admit that I’m a little bit paranoid about this but who in their right mind wouldn’t be?
Rick’s third lawyer came by the house last night too and brought the fee schedule for the wrongful termination suit against his employer so that is one more thing to check off the list. We told her that this time the law suit has nothing to do with any money that will come out of it, it’s more because they fired him for being hurt and they made this whole thing very personal when it never was. Rick had nothing to do with his injury and handled everything exactly the way his employer wanted him too. His supervisor didn’t even have anything negative to say during the worker’s comp hearing about his job performance. He actually said that Rick was a great employee and he wanted twenty more just like him. We still don’t know why they fired him, but we’re not about to just let them get away with it. I can’t wait until Rick is able to go back to working and I know he’s ready to get going again soon, he’s had so much to deal with this past year.
So this morning I’ll drink my coffee and eat my dark chocolate M&Ms and relax a little. I finished all my housework last night so today I can relax a little bit and maybe(see Jason, I spelled it right this time) I’ll watch a movie or two.
