Ugh! Does anybody hear me?

So...I am having a blah week. 
Ivee has been home from school all week, so far, with fever and congestion. The congestion seems to never go away. She's been more productive with it this morning. 
My computer is crashing since I installed MagicJack on it. The PC upstairs slowly declined after a year of having the program on it, it's a newer PC. Didn't think It had anything to do with the program, until now. My notebook is older, but was working fine until Friday last week. I uninstalled the program, but it is running Extremely slow and freezes and the virus protection won't turn on! 
I'm in a rut it seems. I'm not necessarily coming unglued or in need of a Calgon bath, but I would feel more useful if I could fix any of these problems....mainly Ivee. 

It was heavy day yesterday in out little town. Carlin Davis, a 12 year old who lives here, was a St. Jude patient diagnosed with DIPG in August of 2012. She suddenly passed away yesterday morning, leaving behind a grieving mom, dad, brother, and sister. I hate cancer! It steals or destroys so many things. I don't understand why childhood cancer can't get the same funding as breast cancer or other adult cancers. These kids only 10% of what breast cancer gets from the government or fundraising processes. It gets 1% of a dollar from The American Cancer Society and Realy for Life.

I don't understand how I can't get people to help me reach my goal for the St. Jude Give Thanks Walk. 

I had a fellow Ependy mom, who lost her little boy to Ependymoma post this on FB yesterday. 


 
I think I just needed to pour that out! Thanks for checking in and listening to my rants.

I love you, Foley family. I'm sorry that you are among the ranks of parents who have to worry with this nasty disease. I realize that you already know this, but I support you, and I tell everyone who will listen that kids get cancer, and there isn't any funding, and that too many people turn a blind eye. I won't stop doing that until things change. I plan on supporting your St. Jude walk -just need to get through September/football and school expenses first. You can always count on me. Rant away - I'm more than happy to listen. xo
