He is back home again after a very bad attempt at a job in KY. It was found out when they did a pre-employment physical that they think he has "mild" diabetes. I dont know what that means. They also simply wouldnt take a chance on him because of his back and neck issues. What ticks me off is they didnt have him do a physical here but instead he had to pay for a bus to get him all the way to KY and then they didnt work him and sent him home on the Friday of the same week. They told him they were going to pay him from Tuesday - Friday but they never have. That really hurts because of course he didnt have the money and I paid for it. He was going to pay me back with his first check but since they never paid him, no way to pay me back. However, on Monday we both had a dr's appointment with the same doctor and it appears the diabetes they claimed he had is not there. He is .3 lower than it takes to get that diagnosis. His A1C is 5.7 and they said they dont consider it a problem until it reaches 6 or higher. They also got him a referral to our ortho doctor and to the pain clinic. Well they are waiting for the fax back from the pain clinic but that shouldnt take long. They already got him an appointment with the ortho doctor. Thats really good news because the last time he saw this ortho they told him he would probably need surgery on his back within the year and I think he does. It looks like the surgery he had at age 4 has completely come undone. His scapula and collar bone just float under his skin. It will be hard if he has to have surgery but we will get through it. He doesnt want to believe that he cant do what he wants to do but actually climbing those towers is downright dangerous the way his arm and shoulder are right now. Meanwhile he is back here which means the Mouse is here constantly. I dont know why her mother doesnt keep her considering according to what she says, she is only working 2 days a week. She got this other job trying to get people to give her their phone numbers so an insurance company call them but I doubt that pays anything but commission if anyone buys something. One thing that is really bugging me about her - and I get yelled at when I bring it up - is that she needs to realize that she really needs to be the breadwinner and difficult child has got to be the stay at home dad since he is disabled. Instead she gets these no account jobs instead of a real full time job and has now decided to go back to our local university to be a Speech Pathologist. Trust me, I dont think that will work. She has her associates so she could get a decent job...or I would even say it was okay to go get her CNA which is a 6 week class, but to go back to school for more than 2 more years is just dumb. I mean she could go part time I suppose but she wont do that. Also I think she should check with someone to make sure she can even get work with her criminal record. Personally I think she would make a good waitress and probably bring home good tips because she is pretty and has a good little figure. Maybe I just have a differing view on how a couple should act when all things are known upfront. In my opinion this would be like hubby leaving me because I became disabled. He didnt and in fact he is working through severe pain himself because he has to be the breadwinner in our family. I also wouldnt have left him if he had become disabled and somehow we would have figured out how to survive. Mouses mother is still acting like difficult child should be the one who supports all of them when he really cant. She uses her money on fun things.
