Today may or may not be the first day of a four-day work week. I’ve been planning to leave for my mom’s on Friday, but that may change, as I learned yesterday that my brother wants to meet with an attorney to set up a trust for my mom (at her request), and he wants me to be there. If he can’t get an appointment during the time when I was planning to be in Arizona, I’ll be postponing my visit by a couple of weeks.
When talking with my brother I finally learned some specifics about my mom’s condition. Her latest cancer is considered stage 1, and there was no indication that it had spread outside the uterus. Samples of some surrounding tissue did not show any spread to the lymphatic system, so she is undergoing six months of a very light monthly chemo treatment as a precaution. The main effect of the chemo that the doctor anticipates is a feeling of tiredness about two-three days after each treatment. I consider this all very good news and am feeling relieved.
Friday’s disciplinary action went okay. The errant employee was very tearful and not inclined to accept any responsibility for her actions. I met my goal of presenting the information in a firm yet kind way. I don’t expect that this will be the end of it and think that this will be taking up my time for the next couple of months. Still, I be able to accomplish at least one or two feats today.
