    Default I am going through a tough time right now...

    So my entire life the month of april has been a curse. Nothing but bad comes from this month in my life, and although I dreaded the first.... I did not expect this. My grandpa who has had a clean bill of health, got rushed to the hospital this week for cancer. He isnt going to make it through the week. I'm in NY and my entire family is in Arizona. I cannot think straigh and really need some words of encouragement right now. Please.

    I'm so so sorry you are going through this. Maybe if you call and talk to your grandpa it might make things a bit better. I bet a big part of this is that Jovi is away right now but she will be home soon and will definitely make things better. We're here for you April, try to get your mind off the bad stuff, do something that you really like to do.

    I am so sorry to hear this. My prayers are with you and your family. If you need to go to be with your family, Jovi is more than welcome to visit Long Island and hang out with Brutus and Frankie.

    Sorry you're going through this. It really is tough when you're so far from your family. Stay strong, you'll be OK

    hugs and many prayers to you and your family. See if there is a way you can call to talk to him or if someone in your family can get you connected ona phone with Skype and you can see each other.... it is worth a try

    April, I'm so very sorry to hear about this… and your boss seems to be making this worse. I agree w/everyone else maybe you could Skype him, although in his condition that may not be possible. If he could hear your voice, I'm sure he would appreciate it even if he doesn't respond to you. I've been thru this many times w/family members… it's a horrible situation for you and your family. Sending lots of hugs and prayers your way… you will get thru this, and we will be here for you to vent, cry, whatever you need

    No way. That isn't even human for them to deny you. Can you try to talk to them and see if you can go before anything bad happens?? I hope everything works out for you. By the way, how did Jovi do with her surgery?

    I'm so sorry April, for your grandpa and for you. Is your employer aware of the Family Medical Leave Act? it's a federal law that allows employees to take time off for serious medical issues in ones family. Your g-pa's healthy condition is CERTAINLY a serious one!! You have every right to take time off and if your manager doesn't allow than they are in violation of this law. I pray you will be able to take time off to see him.
