My day in court and an update about John





So today was the day I had to go to court for that bitch who stole my credit card numbers and wiped out (temporarily) my checking account.  I had to take the day off from work.  I had to be there at 9 am.  I got there around 8:45 (I beat the detective there).  I had been told a few days before that usually the defendants who are already in jail go last, so it might be along day.  It was ok, I had 2 books with me to read.  Around 9:30, the detective tells me they brought the wrong person to court!!!  How stupid is that????  Did the wrong person think, "Oh cool!  I get to go for a ride and get some fresh air!"  Did the bitch think, "Oh cool!  They forgot about me!  Maybe I won't have to go to court after all!"  The wrong one was all the way to court before they realized they had the wrong person there.   So they cart her ass back to jail and pick up the right person.  So I sat around for another hour, eavesdropping on other defendants who are talking to their attorneys  (amazing how many DUI cases there are!)    Finally, a little after 10:30, the detective comes out and tells me she's there and she had no attorney and wants to waive her rights (she's wanted in 3 counties in PA for passing bad checks and the credit card fraud with me).  They move to link all 3 cases together and now they will ship her ass off to Michigan and let them deal with her.  (She's also wanted in Michigan on various charges).  So I never had to testify and I lost another days pay for nothing.  The good news is she's in jail and we don't have to pay her room and board any more.  she will now become the guest of the state of Michigan and they can pay for the roof over her head and 3 squares a day for who knows how long.  Just so long as she doesn't come back to PA.


I'm still waiting to hear from John about his doctor visit.  He was scheduled for 11:30.  He was getting blood work done at 10:30 when I sent him a message when I got out of court.  It's now 12:20 and I haven't heard anything.  And I'm getting scared.  As soon as I hear something, I'll pass on the info.  


OK, I finally heard from John and HIS SCAN IS CLEAN!!!!
Thank God!!  This is the first time he's gone through the chemo and had a clean scan a few months later.  Maybe, just maybe, the stem cell transplant and all the chemo worked and the cancer is gone for good!  I guess we'll only know when his scans come up clean every 3 months.

Glad to hear about John! Great way to end 2009!

At least they realized they had the wrong person in the morning and not at 3 in the afternoon! What a crock!

That's all great news. Sorry that you lost a days pay out of the deal, but worth it for all the positives of the day.

Daria said...

Excellent news!

Amy said...

Ugh, how frustrating about losing a day's pay, but PTL about John!

Alix said...

What do you mean maybe. OF COURSE the cancer is gone! And it will remain gone if it knows what's good for it because I am not opposed to coming up there and kicking cancer's ass. Although it looks like John has already done a splendid job of that.

Congratulations to him and you and the great state of Pennsylvania. Now let's all bow our heads and say a prayer for poor Michigan.

I am SO glad to hear that John's scans were clean. what a wonderful Christmas gift and a fabulous way to go into 2010.

I'm glad she's gone and that you didn't end up having to testify, but that's too bad you gave up a whole day of work for nothing.

And that's great news about John! Here's to continued health!

The wheels of justice grind slowly.

Glad to hear good news.

The justice system leaves much to be desired!

Knock on wood for John that this is the first of many, many (all his life) clean scans to come.

Oh, and we don't want that bee-atch in Michigan either...we have enough riff raff and unemployment and prisoners here. ha Maybe we need to ship her to Siberia or something??? ha
