They sent Bob home after packing the wound that came open. Pray there are no more complications, and that my sister can find people to help transport him to doctor's appointments, chemo, and radiation treatments. Marie works for a bank in Baltimore, but they are making her go to their Rockville branch, which can be an hour-an hour and a half commute each way. They deliberately keep under 30 employees (shared between the two branches) just keep from having to comply with certain Federal regulations, such as the Family Leave Act. They are giving her a hard time about taking time off for Bob's illness. This company has a reputation for firing people pretty easily, and she can't afford to be out of work. She's the sole support and needs her insurance benefits. She would need enough money to cover a COBRA account until the benefits for a new job would kick in. Not to mention just having money to live.
