Just got this email from DD2 (there is a small computer set up for the girls in the sober home to use for correspondence and applying for jobs on line)....
Hooray!! (she is a bit abbreviated and hasty in her email style, but she was obviously excited and also not feeling well when she wrote it)...
hey, i got a job. i start tomorrow at 9 am for training. my regular
hours will be from 2-7 monday thru friday 8 $ an hour paid every
friday and every two weeks i get commission checks of anywhere from 100-300$ (maybe?) so hopefully things are working out. i think elise is taking me to the ER today because i still don't feel good. its really bad in the morning and it goes away at 10 or 11 all of a sudden until the next morning. it is really weird. so im gonna go make sure its not a cyst or anything. i might change my mind and not go but for now thats the plan. anyways i love you xoxoxo.
I'm hoping that if/when she is in the ER for the suspected bladder infection, she can start the volumes of paperwork that are required to get onto MSI? or some sort of public health benefits program for those with no money, no benefits, etc. We had gone a few weeks ago to the office that "jail" directed us to for that purpose, but at that office, they said she had to go to a hospital in her area (and at that time, she wasn't yet in a sober home) and from that hospital, the process could begin. It's quite a process, but it would just be nice for her to have access to simple antibiotics from time to time, etc.
The dogs are looking at me like I'm nuts because I keep doing a happy dance around my chair. Back to work for me!
Thanks everyone for your prayers and good thoughts! I am so grateful and relieved. We can help with bus passes and fresh veggies and love and encouragement. She can manage the great majority of the rent. This is a huge improvement in her situation and I'm smiling. :)
