Bobby (my husband) has been out of work since last Monday with a hurt knee.  He went to an ortho doc last Wed. and they sent him for an MRI on Sat.  today he went back to the ortho doc for them to read his MRI results and talk about options.  Hes having surgery tomorrow!!!  He has a torn midiscuss(sp) and they're going to sew it up tomorrow.  WTH?!? No warning, no nothing.  What am I supposed to do with the kids to go with him? Or am I supposed to stay home and let him get himself there and home?  He won't be able to drive so again-WTH am I supposed to do???  He'll be out of work for at least 4 weeks, and his job is our only income.  Looks like I'll be finding a job working for minuman wage to try and keep the bills paid and food on the table.  I feel like crying.  We have a wedding to go to on the 14th in SC (we're in NC) its his mothers wedding, I'm supposed to be making her wedding cake.  O-god its like everything hits you all at once!!


So he went to the surgery and made it through just fine, I called my MIL to come up here to watch the kids, only down side was we had to give her gas money to come, so that sucked.  Hes going to be out of work for 4 to 6 weeks so tomorrow I really have to find a job.  I had to apply for some state aid to help us for now until I can find something.  Wish me luck on finding a job.  I may have the phone and internet turned off to save a little bit of money.  If I do, I'll be back when things get better.  I'll miss coming on here and talking to everyone.  This has become a good outlet for me.
