Day 3-5

The waiting game began on Thursday.

Biopsy

Now we wait 3-5 business days for the pathology report. Hoping for the very best. I ve been trying to stay as positive as my thoughts can keep me positive. I am what I attract. I am a firm believer you get what you put out into the universe. I know my mom will be cured and will be back to her stubborn self in no time!

Day 2

I am a walking zombie…

my head hurts, I didn’t sleep all night and I feel like I got kicked in the stomach.

My babies started school today! My almost 5 year old started TK and my baby started preschool. They were the best dressed kids in class. I was reminded to not send them so stylish and not to put honest juices in their lunch boxes…. ooops

Today consisted of me sitting at the coffee shop staring at the Virgen de Guadalupe and praying to her for a miracle. My coffee trip was followed by a phone call to my aunts. I lost it. I sobbed like a baby. But I felt this overwhelming comfort. We may not have all the answers or let alone don’t know where we are going to start, but I knew our family is built on very strong stubborn genes and I knew in that moment that we are going to be ok.

Then I sobbed some more on the way home…

I came home to find my mom extremely anxious… so I threw my nephew under the bus and told her to take a hit of his vape pen. She said she would offer me some but I should not because of my job. And I didn’t. Even though it is legal… we talked. I was scared to be alone. I didn’t know what to say, I just wanted to run home. But I didn’t. She went on to tell me that I need to take care of my dad. I told her let’s slow it down. We don’t even know what these aliens inside your body are yet. One obstacle at a time. For now we will remain positive and start eating a plant based diet!

I tried to nap, but then got a call from the GYN ONC she scheduled an appointment for tomorrow.

Off I went to do my big girl grad school biz. Felt good to be around my classmates who are still completely strangers, but I found comfort in the our discussion about nursing research and evidence based practice.

Pray for us tomorrow…

Dear Mr. Dwayne Whitaker and Mark Warner

Hello World! I thought I would take the time to write about my experience with phone calls pretending to be lawyers wanting to take your money. It’s so important to inform so many people as possible so that we can all spread the word and help put an end to these scammers.

At the end of December, I get a text message from my sister stating she had been getting these phone calls on her house phone from a Mark Warner. He informed her he was calling for me and used my maiden name. He called her several times stating he needed to get a very important message to me. At the time she was telling me this I got a phone call from an unknown number and it was Mr. Warner. Stating on my voicemail that I need to contact him by today or else there would be certified court papers left at my home or place of employment.

I called him and asked where he was calling from and what the reason was for. He asked me to verify my Social Security and Date of Birth, WHICH I DID NOT and hung up. I did nothing about it because this same situation had happened to me last year around the same time.

The following week, I get a text message from my sister-in-law and brother, they also said they had been getting phone calls. By this time I knew it was a scam because my parents were also getting phone calls. I decided to call this Dwayne Whitaker back. I called 1-855-203-4246, a man answers the phone with Litigation Office. I told him I was calling in regards to a message. He asked me to verify and I did not. He then proceeded to get very frustrated and angry. He began to tell me that if I did not comply or pay the amount that I needed to he would prosecute me to the fullest criminal intent. I said ok be my guest. He then escalated to another level and began to cuss at me and said he was on his way to serve me papers to my Fresno, Ca address… I don’t live in Fresno.

I called my local police department, and the kind officer informed me that this has been happening a lot in the community and unfortunately some people fall for this kind of scam. The police officer said it is a huge issue with older people who get scared by these rude callers and give in and give them all their information.

Long story short, be careful to who you give personal information to.

Moral of the Story:

  1. DONT EVERT VERIFY OR GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION. These people are phishing. Phishing is when someone calls you and is attempting to get personal information about you. a11
  2. Ask for a written letter to be sent to you, if they are claiming that they have your address.
  3. They are not going to show up to your home address or place of employment.
  4. If someone plans to sue or serve you any type of court documentation they will certainly not call you and ask you for money prior.
  5. Spread the word, as a community we must stop these unmoralized humans trying to rob us of our hard owned money!

Happy Sunday!

Mission : Slim POSSIBLE

I’ m done. The towel is thrown and I am officially done being over weight.

I will be also make it a goal to drink my body weight in water and walk over 10k steps.
