Johnny had a job interview a couple weeks ago and they just offered him the position!!!!  OMG.  I am so excited.  It's an internship and only pays $12 an hour but they provide housing!  I am so excited for him I can hardly contain myself.  And he graduates on Friday!   He starts his job on June 25.  Yay!  I will still send him $$ because the lease on his current apartment isn't up until August 31, but that's just 2 months rent I'll send him.  Now I'll finally have a little bit of spare money .... OMG I am so excited!!!!!

Thank you, Louann!  He sent me a text, "I have big news" and I texted back, "I'm sitting down...."  then he called me. lol.  I told him I was so excited for him and how incredibly proud I am of him.  I told him I'd be just as proud even if he didn't have that stupid brain tumor.  I told him I wish I was there to give him a big hug and he said, "I guess you have to wait until Thursday." lol.  And I said, "You BETTER let me hug you!!!"  lol

I know, right?!  It's a company in Santa Clara, CA.  He took Amtrack to get to the interview - four hours each way ($60 round trip).  So now he gets to start looking at moving companies.  He doesn't have a whole lot of stuff but also doesn't have a car let alone a truck.  I know a friend of the family has already given him $100 for graduation (Gma still has it) and I know my mom and dad are giving him $500 for a combo graduation/birthday presnent so hopefully that will be enough to get him moved and settled.

Thanks, Lisa!  Johnny had another seizure on May 5 which rattled him.  I guess more so because he isn't having them as frequently as he had been so when one does happen it catches him "off guard".  His neuro-oncologist wrote a letter to his school asking for special consideration (additional time) for taking his finals.  He also dropped one class that he didn't really need - and once he dropped that class - about a month ago - that has helped his "stress" level.  Stress contributes to the seizures and the stress of taking a full-course load for the past 3 quarters, in an effort to catch up from havng missed a quarter last year because of the surgery and the side effects, plus the stress of wanting to graduate on time so he could get a job so I could quit working so many hours - well, by allowing him extra time on finals helped a lot, plus dropping that one class.  And now he has the job, too!
