it's been a while since I've posted. lots of stuff goin on here, most of which suck. first, and foremost, I am in danger of losing my job. the hospital that I work for, and it's sister facilty, is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.
for some more info read this article
what sucks even worse is it's not just me. my father also works at the hospital. he's been workin for 23 years and is 54 years old. he has a debilitating disease and it would be even more difficult for him to find a job than it would be for me.
to top it off, we just recently got our house in our name. it belonged to my grandfather, who passed away almost two years ago. he didn't leave a will, so we had to struggle to get the place that we've called home for 35 years. if both my father and I loose our jobs, there would only be one income, my brother's, in the house. if he can't keep up the mortgage payments by himself before I can find another job, we could lose the house.
as stated in a previous post entitled "Medical Suckness", I have avascular necrosis of my hips. it's gotten worse and later this week I will be consulting a surgeon to schedule surgery. I'm hoping that the surgical option can help me. it could be up to a year before I get back to work since I have to get both sides done. I can't get them done at the same time since I can't bear any weight on the affected hip for 4-6 weeks.
so that rounds up the latest bullshit in my life.
