A quick update to my last post. First, I want to thank each one of you who commented on my last post. Your words, prayers, and well wishes mean so much more to me than I could ever express. Y'all are the greatest!
Since my last post, I have secured a job! Yay, me!!! I am now employed as a legal assistant for a small firm in my home town. It is only about a ten minute drive from my home and I am making more money on the hour than I did at my last job! So far, I am really liking it, although I am a bit overwhelmed as it is so much to learn and everything is very new to me since I've never worked in the legal field before! But I can and will learn it and I think I am going to like working there very much.
Scott and I went to Duke for his consultation with the surgeon regarding the CT scan he had done here that showed some suspicious spots on his brain. We drove four hours to sit in the doctor's office for five minutes! Ggggrrr!!! The surgeon was very nice, although he talked so fast and because he is from South Africa, he had quite an accent and it was very hard to understand some of what he was saying! He said the scan did show something although he said it was not definitive enough for a diagnosis. So he wants Scott to come back to Duke for some follow up testing. His office is supposed to be contacting us to set this up, but Monday will be two weeks since the initial appointment and we still haven't heard anything from them. On a good note, Scott has not had a single migraine since the Monday we went to Duke! Praise God for that!! I think it was mostly stress related, with me being unemployed and our finances dwindling, his truck being broken down, and just general life issues. Thank you all again for your prayers for him ~ obviously, they have been working!!!
The truck is still broken down but we are working on getting the stuff needed to get it fixed. Many moons ago, Scott worked as a mechanic for a local trucking company, so we are blessed that he can usually fix stuff on our vehicles when they break. Right now, I am having to get up at 4 a.m. to drive him an hour to work, then drive an hour back home and get ready so I can be at my job at 8 a.m. and then when I get off work at 5 p.m., I drive the hour back to his work to get him if he isn't lucky enough to be able to catch a ride with someone from work who is traveling thru our area. Whew! It's been rough, but we do what we have to do, right??!! The good news on this front, Scott got called for an interview with a company that is located close to home, about a five minute drive from our house, and word has it, they really liked him and he will probably get a call back for a second interview. We are really excited about this because it's also more money than he is making now. So God is really moving in our lives right now, and I am so thankful!!! We still have a ways to go to get outta the woods, but we are getting there!!
I just want to say thank you again to all my wonderful friends here in blogland. Who knew that people you may never get a chance to meet in "real life" could become such close and wonderful friends. I love you all and appreciate all your prayers. Please keep them coming!!
Until next time. . .
