(sarcasm is an art)
I'm in a bit of a pickle.
I recently had surgery to remove a piece of my intestine. Lucky me, I had a 1-in-3 million condition that helped open a hole in my guts and let some acid and whatnot leak into my guts.
Well, here I am 2 weeks later and I still feel like butt. I mean, I'm sore, the area around the staples is pretty infected and I'm battling a tough cold that has my nose bleeding and all that jazz. Basically, two infections and a surgery to recover from.
So I'm on short-term disability until the doctor deems me healthy enough to go back to work... Which I go to talk to him about tomorrow when I finally get the infected staples removed.
Meanwhile, I get a call from one of the other Art Directors at my workplace saying that she got laid off. Actually, she and two others got laid off, with a pretty good authority that there is to be a fourth within the week.
And today, while at home, checking my work email, I get a directive from my boss to giver her a call; "it is very important".
Guess I'm losing my job today fellas.
Considering the heavy student loan payments, pricey recent car issues, and having paid rent on a house... We don't have a lot of money.
Now I'll have some medical bills (that hopefully my insurance will be covering since it was while I was employed), and moving expenses, since we'll not be able to afford rent. And right before the holidays.
If things don't turn around pretty quick and a giant miracle happen in the near future, I'll have to part with my Polk gear just to make some temporary ends meet. If that is the case, which I'm certainly hoping isn't, I'll post that in the proper place.
Basically, I just needed a shoulder to lean on and a few ears to hear me out. Thanks guys. Seeing as how I am a firm believer in God, any of you willing to pray for my family and I will make my saints list. Any of you that don't believe... If you could just pretend and shout a quick word toward where we think Heaven might be in favor of my family and myself, well, I think that works too. After all just 'cause you might not believe in Him doesn't mean He can't hear you... and your loud speakers. Especially your loud speakers.
