Filing for unemployment was a big waste of time. They only pay if you are able and available for work. So I’m filing for Social Security disability instead. I also moved the money you guys have donated me from PayPal to my checking account. That amount totaled just over $500.00.

I’m in Pelham (alone) this weekend. I’ll head back to Florence on Monday. My little sister is working on two years of mileage logs in hope the State of Alabama will give me my 2013 and 2014 state income tax refunds which they are holding in the amount of $2,600.00. That money would sure help. 

I am still very weak. My chemotherapist wants to get a CT scan run to see if there are any traces of cancer still in my body. If there are he’ll continue with a third cycle of chemo. Otherwise, he may release me. Should know something by the end of this week. I’d stay here in Pelham a bit longer, but for not having enough HIV meds to last pass tomorrow. The meds came in my sisters mail after I left there for Pelham on Thursday. 

I’d still like to ask you for more donations, if you can offer them. I promise I would not ask if I were certain the money in my checking account will hold out. Thanks for anything you can do to help me. 

I love you all.

I was dismissed from ECM hospital on Friday. One whole week in the hospital. My sister took me to Pelham on Saturday morning. Despite being glad to be home the first thing I notice? Grass needs to be mowed.

I checked in to UAB Hospital for surgery at 5:00 A.M. this morning. All went well. Except the doctor had to remove the old stint and replace it with another. So in a month or two I’ll be back there again. 

I feel better. I’m back in Florence. Bored as hell.

Did get my mail. Unemployment rejected my claim. Going to see what I can do about reversing that. If I can’t I’ll probably lose my house and my car.
