The Worst News

January 12th, 2017 at 10:43 am

C did not have surgery yesterday, because they did a preliminary laparoscopic procedure and found more tumors. Her cancer has metastasized. She will have chemo, but they are not encouraging about her prospects.

Needless to say, my DIL is beside herself. We are all grieving hard. I have not been able to see C yet; she was groggy yesterday and did not want visitors.

I took care of the boys after school yesterday and spent $4 on snacks.

I'm going back to work today, but will leave early if I am needed. Sounds like I will have a slick commute, so I will be extra careful.

I'm getting started in collecting my tax documents. So far, I only have the W-2 from the College. Still need the SS statement and the one from TIAA. That might be on their website, come to think of it. Also the statement from the museum.

I reapplied for the Senior Freeze Exemption -- a freeze on property tax. I have to reapply every year. I almost forgot last year.

Life goes on, doesn't it? It seems so trivial now to think about taxes and such, but it all has to be done.
