Hiya all. I want to tell you that todays events have brightened our day. Many of you know the worrying situation about Jen's job being in jeapardy. I guess that I have mentioned it often and considering that many here have much greater hardships to bare I feel very selfish to have told our story. Nonetheless we were both very unhappy and stressed to the limit as Jen's job was our only source of income.
I am so relieved now and thrilled to say that Jen got confirmation today of acceptance into another full time secure job. Our day today was full of happiness and tears....the pressure is released. The past 2 years since my dx has not been a happy one and the job situation was something extra that we really didn't need. I am particularly happy for Jen because as you all know she is my "angel" and has had to work extremely hard to cope with all this.
Although this was not a fight against cancer it was a fight for our livelyhood and to all those here who new of it we say thank you for your support!
Friday night I will take Jen out to dinner to celebrate! A great weight is off our minds.
Our love to you all, Ross n Jen

    HOORAY! I am so happy for you both. And, thanks for sharing this wonderful news here. We are more than our colons and our (history of) cancer and it is good to have this upbeat reminder of that.

    That is such good news! It reminds us all that there are other aspects to our lives apart from the actual cancer that cause us stress. Enjoy your celebration!

    CONGRATULATIONS! It is so nice to open this area and find good news. I am so very happy for your family. Financial stress has caused a lot of problems for many people which shows that you and yours are strong and can make it thru anything together.
    My hat goes off to you. God bless you and keep those happy posts coming!

    Thank you all once again. Yes, her job was a major stress for us. All I ever wanted was the knowledge that Jen would always be financially secure if my health failed me. She has worked so hard and had to endure so much. I am so happy to see her with that load off her mind.
    Love, Ross n Jen
