Just waiting for the time to go by...

From mom Beaglebrat - sorry Iwe haven]t been around but it is hard and time consuming to type this altho I do have plenty of time just sitting here at home.  I have beeen working with the B-bratz on their tricks and trying to work up a bit of a dance routine  - something to keep them active and me exercising altho the exercise is good for them too.  My cornea translant is still scheduled for June 15 providing no new problems develope.

I do have a bit of a favor to ask, besides your kindly given prayers.  If there are any Federal government employees out there -  I work at a Veterans Administration Medical Center and al federal agencies, which we are, take part in a leave donation program.  I have been approved to receive donated leave from other federal employees.  If you or if you know of anyone who mite be willing to donate leave all they need to do is contact their personnel or Human Resource office - I work at the Eastern Kansas Health Care Service in Topeka, Kansas.  You can get more info about me and my job in my profile.  Since I am out of leave at this time I am now on a leave without pay status.  I have gotten my tax return which helps  but I have at least another full two months before I go bak to work and even then there will be the added expense of medical expenses.  I know this sounds like begging and whining and I reaally don't like  having to do this but since it is only me and the B-bratz I don;t have much of a choice.  Even IF I could get SS disability, I woul likely be back at work long before any benefits came thru - been there done that years ago.  Have also been denied benefits - almost seeems like one has to be on their death bed before any benefits are granted.

Anyway, I truly appreciate your thoughts and orayers.  Maybe the B-bratz can stop by soon - rite now they are both so totally bombed out on the couch - between all the time they spend outdoors since mom is here to keep the revolving door functioning and the exercise they get grom their tricks and dancing I guess they think they need their rest.  I will talk to you all later.............

Sorry I can't help you with the leave donation program. It must be so difficult to have to wait so long for the transplant. Hope all goes well and tell the bratz that Tank says "woof."

We are so sorry that your mom is going through this difficult time. Hope things will get better soon and that she'll find someone who will donate their leave to her.

Glad that your mom has her surgery scheduled. I hope a bunch of people step up with the donated leave time.
My mom used to do that for people she worked with... once she had the Max. number of days she could get paid for when she retired. It made her feel good to help others and was a way to show how thankful she was to have had good health so that she could stockpile her days.

Best of luck.
