Well it seems that I will start back to work next week. I have been cleared by the Doctor to return to work with restrictions that I don’t lift anything over 20 pounds. I also have some vacation time I need to use before February or I lose it. So, I might take that before I actually go back so I don’t have to stop and start again. I have to go back and talk to them tomorrow. They are trying to find a place for me within the lifting restrictions, since I cannot lift over 20 pounds and I cannot sit or stand for long periods of time. They also have to find something that will be flexible around my availability and my physical therapy.
I know I have to go back so I can get a full paycheck, but I am not looking forward to all the drama at work. Hopefully I will get my morning schedule back. I loved working the 5am-2pm shift, it was the perfect shift in which I still had the afternoon to get what I needed done. I can just hope. I have to get ready for bed so I can get up for physical therapy tomorrow at 8:30 am. Goodnight.
