I hope you're all well. The count seems to be getting closer to the next milestone. I had a decent interview last night. I can't quite claim it as being "successful" until the hiring process has completed. The interesting news is that they are looking to complete the process by next Monday. I really want this career position. It would be great to (finally) have some security. I'd appreciate some assistance from you all, too. Thanks!

More importantly, I need your support for something else, too. My grandmother is having quite the battle right now. She's 83, but her health has been deteriorating over the past five or six years. She used to be quite healthy until my grandfather past away. Anyway, she has been in the hospital since Saturday morning and they don't quite know what is wrong. They've run tests but the doctors are baffled. With that said, I would appreciate your help and assistance on this matter, too. My grandmother has always been there for me and it is tough for me not to be around her during this tough time. Thank you!

Enjoy your Thursday, everyone. After today, there is only one more work day until the weekend!
hope all works out the way you are hoping with the job!

My prayers are with you and your grandmother. I have seen many times when a couple has been together for many years that they literally cannot live with out each other. What is wrong with her could be something no medical test can detect. Keep letting her know how much you love her. ((((HUGS)))))

I agree with you Christmasstar...my sweet mom was never the same after my dad passed. No one can understand unless they've experienced the devastation of being with someone for so many years and suddenly being alone.
Prayers and good thoughts for Grandma and brent.

Just quit your job like I did and then it can be.


(Okay you probably shouldn't do that. In fact I probably shouldn't have done that. All of the money I was saving to pay cash for a house is slowly evaporating.)
