In April, 2007, my world came apart. I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in my right breast. The same week, my beloved husband was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. I have to give my thanks to my AMAZING coworkers! I worked full time through the surgery, chemo and radiation because I needed to save my paid time off and FMLA to care for my husband. My lovely coworkers were awesome. They cooked meals, said prayers, rubbed my bald head for good luck, held me when I cried.........................the list of their kind acts just goes on and on.
My husband is no longer able to do any of his own personal care. My stepsons have been my saviors. They have put their lives on hold to come help me and their Dad. One of them cares for him during the day so I can work. I would prefer to stay home to provide his care. I have to keep the bills paid and keep myself insured so I go to work. I do not know who to thank but we received an anonymous money order for $1000 during the Christmas season. I believe it came from my peers at work. They continue to support me in innumerable ways. Sometimes it is just a kind word, a hug, a smile.....................lots of small kindnesses that have helped more that I can say.
If you are looking for a rave, just look my way. MY COWORKERS ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
