Continued Stress

I'm really glad to be home but I'm continued to be stressed over the business. My tech that I thought was going to work out decides today that she can't do the job. So, I'm searching for a replacement and for me to do the training in two days is not realistic. It's looking like I'm going to loose a lot of money by not servicing my accounts. Something just isn't right when you train six potential techs and none of them work out!

Again, I tell myself that I have to concentrate on ME. This is what I'm doing but income (my only source) is my business and I guess I'm just scared.

Kids are doing great and we went out to eat again tonight! They want to go see a movie tomorrow night if we can get tickets to see The Astronaut Farmer (I think that's what it's called). My car is still not running as of this afternoon which I hope does not put Keith in a bind tomorrow getting my car and driving it home. This dealership in Akron has just been driving us crazy over repairing this problem.

I'm heading to my local clinic in the AM for a potassium level check. I've been feeling fine flushing the catheter and changing the dressing daily. I'm not looking forward to returning to Cleveland but reality is at hand. I have to kick this cancer out of my system. I WILL DO THIS!!!!!

Oh, one more thing. My friend Bob who owns several quick oil change facilities with his brother Lou told me that Lou passed away and it floored me! He died unexpectedly at the age of 52. It really brought me down and I know Bob is devastated not for just the loss of his brother but losing his best friend as well. Sorry Bobby!

Alan,
Just give your worries and concerns to God, He is holding you tight! It will all work together...it always has.

The plan is for me to pick Christi up from school, drive to the VW dealer, pick up your car and drive it home (Christi will drive mine). I am sure your car will be ready by the afternoon. Keith and Christi won't get to head out until after 6:00, so they won't get to Louisville/New Albany until the wee hours.

Stay focused on kicking cancer's butt...that is the main objective in your life right now! Enjoy the kids, they will give you just what you need to keep up the fight in Cleveland.

Sorry about your friend!
Cathy

I am not sure if I have signed your guestbook before or not. Recently, someone left a prayer request on our site. Please know that you are in my prayers and we are asking others to do the same. If there is ever anything we can do, please don't hesitate to ask.
