This is my second time posting. I was on the phone with my sis (Lala), getting all the updates when my computer stopped working. It took me over an hour and shutting it down many times to get it back... let's hope it works!
As you can guess by the forward on this post, my computer arrived but I don't have the internet hooked up yet. It won't be long though.
Today was J's second day of treatment. He said that he is starting to get some feeling back in his arms again. The treatment takes 2 1/2 hours and he'll be going back every day this week. Once he's done this week then the treatments will drop to one day a week then down to once a month. It is a good thing that we have "free" medical in Canada; this treatment is costing (the taxpayers) $1,000 a day!!! Yup people, that is 10 one hundred dollar bills a day! He has a shunt in his left wrist and the doctors inject the plasma and the proteins in his body intravenously.
He has been having a hard time with the strength in his arms and finds it too difficult to write. (Pray against depression on J; I see him trying to battle it.) I'm having to open his pop cans for him and that's hard for me too, emotionally. When he is able to write again then he'll be able to go back to work. He's a foreman and does more paperwork than labour. I am still looking for work. I've put out my resume at local property management companies and as a administrative assistant. Tomorrow I'll drop off some more. It's really strange for me to be doing this. I worked for my parents for 12 years! It feels like I'm having to "sell" myself and it's left me feeling very vulnerable. J and I have discussed it and even after he's gone back to work I will stay at my job. We have debt to pay off (4 weeks with no pay and climbing, the disability insurance hasn't kicked in either but it doesn't cover our mortgage anyways...) and we want to start a savings account. Everyone should have a savings account!!!
(My (Shash's) computer has shut off 3 times now and this is getting harder and harder to post!)
Thank you to those who have called and e-mailed and left wonderful comments on my blog. J has made me read them all to him, they are really lifting our spirits and I can see a change in him. A special thank you to my Dad who has called each and every day since this began. You are amazing and it means a lot to J (and to me)!! Thank you to those who have stood in the gap at your churches in prayer for us as well. Just knowing we have so many people beside us is helping.
Keep it coming... the battles not finished!
