thank you all so much for all of your prayers, support, and sweet comments when i posted this. my heart is overflowing. i am so grateful to have such caring people in my life, in person and online.
i thought i should start this week off with updates, for those who have been waiting.
there are still no projects lined up for B at work, but, after they saw how good he is with reports and spreadsheets, they transferred him to another office to do analysis work in business development until a project comes along. this means he has a new boss, one that actually communicates, and his job is secure for the moment. he's not putting his eggs all in this basket, though, and has started applying for positions elsewhere. he has an interview coming up (no set date yet, as they're running his background check first) that we're really hopeful about.
now, to answer the question you're really wondering...how is B's dad? well, B's dad is doing well. his oncologist ran another cat scan and has verified that the cancer is advanced and will require chemo, but he is very hopeful and says that it looks very treatable. the treatment starts this week and we're relieved that they're starting so soon. B's dad is confident that all will be well, but doesn't really like to talk about it very much. he doesn't give us too many details (like what stage the cancer is in), because he doesn't want us to worry. he has also decided not to move him and my mother-in-law into B's sister's home. he doesn't want to be a burden to anyone, so he's going to be hiring an in-home nurse to care for both of them during all this. everyone has been trying to talk him into letting the family do more, but he is adamant. (now i know where B gets his stubbornness.) i'll try to update you all on his treatment and how they're faring.
with all that has been going on, i realized that i needed to do something for me, because stressed is not a good look for me. so...i decided to change my hair again. i know, i know, i do this every few months, but trust me when i say that it was time. my roots were awful and the color had faded to the point that i was looking washed out. wanna see how it looks now?
B loves it! he always thinks i look good, but this is his favorite color on me...and i agree. :)
