Hello happy readers, how are you all today? Lets face it, the first week of January is over and we hardly feel like winter has even touched us…ok some of us.
Today I am going to explain about my current situation. If you follow me on Facebook then you know I will be undergoing neck surgery in the near future. This will undoubtedly cause a cease of posts on the blog at least (it’s the only platform that my iPhone doesn’t cooperate with).
I will be spending only one night away from home and with any luck will return to work in two weeks time. I may or may not need more time than that.
I have been arguing back and forth with my manager at work. What’s work? You know…the real world place I have to go from 8am to 4 pm Monday – Thursday. Yeah…that place.
Shut it…I love my job. I like it so much that I’ve been arguing with my manager about the fact that I plan to return to work two weeks after surgery. Well I got my doctor on board, but I think my husband has put his foot down on the matter…size 13, you don’t want to be under that thing!
I will be able to resume writing when I’m feeling up to it, but he would prefer I take the four weeks to heal. See, I have a problem with taking time of from work. Not only do things get done, not my way, but I also feel bad about leaving my manager and the doctor without the aid of the third person in the office.
The Doctor does the important healing and fixing of people, but I do the important stuff and the manager does way important stuff….were a team. When one isn’t there for a week it’s difficult, but we make it. This is four – six weeks. Ouch.
On top of that, I have anxiety…I’ll be a nervous wreck. Not to mention my OCD will be going out of control every morning I get out of bed and don’t reach for a pair of scrubs.
The problem with all of this is simple… in August of 2014 I had a surgical procedure. Non-life threatening, no big deal, but if I start talking about it on here no man will ever read my blog again…It’s just a TMI sort of thing.
I took a total of four days off, and went back to work…yeah, not pretty. 8 weeks later and my incision busts open. Oh, if you only knew where. Lets just say a 1-10 scale is nowhere near big enough. So back to emergency surgery, and a few days off… I was fine.
But this time it’s the neck and spinal cord is affected, so my big-foot husband has his foot down, and woah…
Yup, it’s time.
Is it just me, or should we let the guy win once in a while? Yes, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. I’m saing what every woman knows to be true. We let them think their right because we can.
But really I’m sitting here thinking about it, and one way or another I’ll go back to work, and straighten the office up and catch up, but I should know enough that after neck surgery I will need to rest, and I will need to heal, and I know damn well I’m not going to want to go to work, after just. If anything, I’ll just pretend I’m on vacation…albeit without the sand.
So he can put that foot down, and I’ll just let him think he won! Win win, as long as you don’t blab! :)
