Michael's boss, who is on vacation for two weeks, stopped by the office yesterday to get an update on Michael's situation. He gave him the name and number of the Inspector General, a few tips on how to handle it and told Michael to keep him updated. Michael called the Major he has been dealing with in Springfield and the latest episode is that they have tried seven times to get Michael into the pay system without success.(My first comment was then how come you've not received seven phone calls saying that this is not working instead of you having to make all the contact and try to find out why you aren't getting paid?)
As of yesterday afternoon, the story is that more emergency pay for Michael has been authorized and will be in his account this Thursday. The rest of what is due him will be paid on 4 August. Apparently the MyPay system is not working for Michael so they are rerouting him through a different system. Michael told the Major that with all due respect, he is not holding his breath that he will actually be paid in this timeframe and the Major apologized again and said that Michael had the respect of Springfield with the way he has handled this situation. So we are still praying that this will happen and ask that you do as well. I feel so hopeless and helpless at this time for my son and somehow feel I've failed him somehow.
Also Kathy goes to the lawyer today at 11 to see what the bio father is wanting as far as Cade and Carter. She is going alone(which was an answer to a prayer as her husband tends to be very volatile and she didn't need the opposing lawyer seeing that) She is scared but knows that God is directing the way.
Roger's foot pain has now extended up to his hip which was replaced 3 years ago and into his back. My husband is not one to take pain relief but I have seen him do so more and more the last week. I'm trying to lighten his load all I can but not to take away his freedom and spirit. He lives to take care of me and feels he is not doing a good job of that. He is spending most of his time in his recliner reading and watching TV and he is used to being up and about.
This is really sounding like a Debbie Downer post this morning and for that I apologize. But life is what it is here and I have to keep it real for both me and my friends.
I heard the neatest thing last night that made me smile and know that life goes on. A young man was having the time of his life sailing down his driveway in an old office chair with wheels that was being put out to pasture. His father was out taking pics of him doing this. Talk about celebrating the moments! Taking the time to watch your son do something that is so fun and documenting it on film is what life is about. These parents are the real deal! Go find your office chair and sail down your driveway or find another way to bring a moment of joy into your life today. Do it for me.
