Two for Wednesday

04 Nov

So I have to do another post today for missing yesterday. And I need to update everyone on situations that I have previously written about.
I went in and had my interview with Wal-Mart and it went good, I was offered a job and will be a part-time temporary employee for up to 120 days. Which will be nice and help us while I’m working on getting done with my Medical Transcription. Which I am happy to say that I’ve gotten an assignment done, Monday! And waiting for them to get it back to me to re-do because I have to get 80% or better and there were many words that didn’t make sense and I couldn’t find on any data-base. And if it were in real life I’d be able to go up to the doctor and say “What the heck were you saying?!” So I’m not too worried. I have made my mind up to just not worry about it and get it done and get it in. What is really making me mad though is all the “practice assignments” other then the one that I have to turn in are all under 3 minutes long. BUT the assingment that I have to turn in is 6 minutes long! Thanks! Because it takes longer then 6 minutes to type out because well I’m fast, but not that fast!
So anyway! Sorry for the tangent. I went in yesterday and took my drug test, which I would hope I pass since I haven’t done any drugs in years! So I’m pretty much just waiting for the phone call now after they run my stellar background. They’re paying me $9.55 an hour which is more then what I made the last time I worked which is nice! And will help, at even 20 hours a week. It will definatly help out our money situation. As long as Jesse continues working.

So there’s that.

My dad update. My mom had posted a status update on facebook saying this:

Okay so Mike starts a new thing for the multiple myeloma, it is a thylidomide derivitive called revlimid. The clinic in Bend called, well their financial planner called, not a good sign and not especially if you are a real positive personality like my Mikie. So I have been told to drive the piss out of the new car ’cause it is going back. So who wants to see me? Sign up now!!

So this worried me, so I called to ask what the heck was going on. They found out that dad’s meds would cost him. $5,000 a pill. A PILL. And he has to take them once a day! For at least 3 weeks!! Oh and my dad has been on partial disability now for a year because his work has gone down since his first round with his cancer. So he’s on Medicare, and Medicare being AWESOME won’t, that’s right WON’T cover the medication because it is a chemotherapy. Sooo now they’re waiting on what my mom’s insurance will cover and whatever that won’t cover they are trying to get on different programs to help with the payment. My dad needs this so his bones will stop dissolving. This is his life. So I don’t want to hear anymore from people saying we don’t need health care reform. My mom and dad have health care. My mom pays half her pay check a month to her health insurance. So why doesn’t it help them?!?! It makes me sick.

So there you have it. Questions, comments? Good!
