Crappy Update

Well I spoke to my mom today. She has surgery tomorrow for her cancer situation and it should be an in and out procedure. She has good people going with her, so I feel good that she'll have good people with her while she is there.

Now the bad news... She has to have spinal fusion surgery on 3 herniated disks in her upper back on January 3rd. She will be out of work for 6 weeks in a huge brace and then a few more out with a different kind of brace. The biggest problem is the fact that she doesn't have enough sick time to take all those weeks off. She only has 20 some days... I don't know what she'll do. I wish i could help... I don't have the means to help her... I don't know what I can do. She can't be without a paycheck for 5 weeks... I don't think she can go without one for one week. I can't be without work for a few days and I'm already in trouble. We are not a rich family. We work hard for our money and our careers. Always have. Just once I wish we could catch a break. Especially mom. She has worked so hard and sacrificed so much for all of us, she deserves better then that. She deserves some happiness and some relaxation and not this crap. Don't you think cancer is enough to deal with?!?! Dammit... come on. give her a break, she finally deserves a break... come on.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom.........You are probably saying What next. I know I would be....Have your mom check into temporary disability....I think she can get it because it is more than a month of time off.....She needs to check as soon as possible, because it may take some time to get it.....I believe it is through Social security..
My prayers are with her, your brothers and you..........

It's such a bad break for your Mom. I feel awful about the situation and wish I could help. :( All I can do is offer a prayer and lots of hope.
