Another Update on Louie and I
« on: October 14, 2008, 11:27:21 PM »
Hello everyone,

WOW, didn't realize I've been away for so long.  Louie's still hanging in there.  Still in renal failure but starting to feel a bit better at times.  He's had some mild infections and such but nothing serious.

We had to have the port in his arm replaced today and they put in another pic line in the other arm.  He's on so much strong pain meds that they said they had a hard time putting him under.  One of the difficulties of being on the types of pain meds he's on when needing to be put under for surgeries of anytype.

Like my previous post said earlier.  I'm not doing hair any longer.  My previous boss wanted me to work every other Saturday and I said I didn't want to if she wasn't going to pay me anything.  So this one Saturday that she insisted I work, I called in sick and told her I had a doctor's note.  She fired me.  The Universe was pointing me in the direction of doing Psychic and Tarot readings to suppliment our income.  So since July I've been working on doing that.  PLUS I did manage to collect unemployment but of course she appealed and tried to get it stopped.  Was told that my previous absences were beyond my control so I was intitled to unemployment.  Now the appeal is on Thursday.  It's an automatic appeal that takes place for either side if they lose the decision.

I told the first guy that my boss knew I have AIDS and knew that since before hiring me and that she assured me not to worry if I needed time off for any reason.  But the ADA doesn't fit in because she has less than 15 employees.  BUT an excused note from the doctor covered my butt so to speak.

Anyway, it has given me time to write the book, get it published and start writing others.  Going to have my heart checked since occassionally I get a feeling of light pressure in the center of my chest and heart disease runs in my family on both sides.  So at 45 I asked my doc to refer me for a heart exam.  Going to be calling to set that up tomorrow and hopefully they can get me in soon.

Guess the stress of taking care of Louie and everything else is catching up with me.  So I've been doing meditations and trying to relax and just let things go their course if I have no control of them.  Things have actually gone a lot smoother since then.

My private clientele for readings is growing quickly.  Have regular clients from all over the world.  Today I had a private party to do of 9 people so made some decent money for 2 1/2 hrs of work.  Have a request for another 9 people or more for next Tuesday. 

I'm just hoping that the sales of the book pick up and the book sells quite a bit.  Would be nice to be a famous Author.  What an accomplishment for me after 20 years of being POZ. 

So now instead of Michael Carbone, hairstylist. . . I am  Rev Michael Carbone, Internationally Known Psychic Medium, Tarot Reader, Reiki Master/Teacher and AUTHOR!!  YEAH!

Maybe my book will be on Oprah's book of the month club  LOL

Hope everyone is doing well, miss my old friends on here and hope to make more new friends as well.
