Bubbles/Work Again




Ok, for the promotion, they had me do the Wanderlick test and a few others during regular work hours. It took 2 hours to complete everything and I'm pretty confident that I did ok.... despite being told that I would be able to use a simple calculator only to find out that the policies had changed and no calculators were allowed during the testing phase.

Anyway, the next step is to wait for them to contact me about an interview. My supervisor said that the entire process can take up to 2 months. So, keep me in your thoughts! 


As for Bubbles, she was finally diagnosed with Cushing's Disease. While it's likely a benign tumor, she isn't out of the woods yet. The doctor thinks that we can control it with meds (Trilostain?) for about a year before having to move to surgery. I saved some money by finding an online pharmacy to fill it since the Oncologist said it would be $200 for a month's worth.  Diamondback Pharmacy will fill it for $96 each month (that includes shipping)  


Once she starts the meds, we will have to do blood work every month to check one of her enzyme levels. However, this option is cheaper and safer than the $4000 surgery that would need the $1700 CAT scan to go with it. 


If she were younger, we might have considered surgery, but due to her advanced age, I don't want to put her through the long recovery time again. Since the storm clouds are starting to clear up, I made a conservative $900 payment on the Capital One card. I'm still holding on to the other $900 just in case she doesn't respond to this medication and we need to do more testing. For now, I am nudging my snowball to get it moving again  


With this payment, the Capital One Card has a balance just under $600 and I'll be sooooo happy to scratch it off the list soon!!!!!! Sooooo EXCITING!!!
