Won't be here for a while...

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
We got a call at about 12 this afternoon from my grandparents back in CA. My Uncle (the youngest son) has died. They aren't sure why yet, although we are suspecting a drug overdose or fight. We could be wrong but this is what he has done all my life. So now my mom, other Uncle, and I are flying back on Tuesday. I really don't know what to think right now. This couldn't have happened at a worse time. Mom was just about to start a temp job, because we are desperately in need of money. My other Uncle (they had 3 sons and one daughter) is paying for the 3 of us to fly out thankfully, because we couldn't even afford 1/4 of a ticket with the prices they are charging. (The cheapest was over $700 for one ticket!) Hopefully they will still let my mom work once we get back, she is going to work tomorrow, but since we will be gone the rest of the week she can't work. I just got my laptop to work again, well, Prada did. This weekend the screen has just been black, even when turned out the screen is black, no color or anything. I left it on today to see if I could get it to bring the color back, well Prada slept on the keyboard and now the color is back. Anyways, thats it for now I guess, I won't be on much. We don't even know where we will be staying or anything. Gotta love not having money right now.

When it rains it pours. I'm sorry about your cousin. Did you find a job yourself, Meagan? I remember you were looking.

Thanks everyone. It was my Uncle and I still have yet to find a job. I might get a call back this week but who knows now.

They think he had a heart attack from having so many narcotic pain patches on him at one time. They won't get bloodwork back for another 2-3 months...

Well plans changed, now we are leaving tomorrow afternoon. I went on Priceline, where you name your own price, and then the airlines accept or decline your offer. I was able to get us 3 tickets for $500 each plus tax.

Thanks again everyone. Yes, I am still her in Virginia. From about 2 am it has been snowing like crazy and our flight was cancelled. I checked the snow about an hour ago and we had over 9 inches. Our flight has been rescheduled for 5 pm tonight, but the snow is still coming down so I am not sure if the flight will stay on time. I'll let everyone know. I would have written earlier but it turns out my laptop was attacked by viruses and I had to work on that. It is fine now and I can finally use it again.

Sorry to hear about your uncle, I am going through the same thing right now with my dad who passed away on Wednesday. If your flight is cancelled, you should try US Airlines. They have a program called TLC which helps with the plans and gives you discounts for a situation like this.

Sorry again to hear about your loss.
