Well--today has been the day to tie up all of the weeks loose ends in the most unappealing way possible.
Our phone lines were out most of the day--from about 7:30 this morning until a bit before 3 this afternoon...so I used my time to exercise a lot. So I get to therapy and...hooray, my extension started at -10 and after minor work, no tears, got to -4. But I could barely stand or walk and after over an houtr of bending and sleds and bikes and all of that--and then my pt manually manipulating me into major tears--I got to a whopping 88 degrees flexion. (It has been naturally at around 95 all week and my os got it to 135 in the OR) And that work out made me physically ill--and I can't get past the pain. (yet)
Then my boss finally called me. They will not give him his teachers--so he is disappointed. I know that I will be teaching in the room next to my past room on the first floor. I told my boss to let the other teachers make the call on this--but I will either be getting a third grade class that will have to move down there from upstairs--or I'll get the second grade class that is already there and their teacher will go to the third grade class. This will upset some 50 kids and 3 teachers. I just want to work--I didn't want to cause a lot of turmoil. They knew I'd be coming back, I'm thinking this could have been easier for all of us. They are going to have to get me a full-time aide because I cannot take the kids down stairs to lunch, upstairs to the library, upstairs to music, or up two flights of stairs to pe. And I have no idea when I get to be evaluated by the work fitness people. I sure hope that they determine I'm "fit" to work--whatever in the #ell that means.
I'm sore, tired and frustrated right now...not a great combination. I'm trying to tip the scale to enjoy this three day weekend with my family. My second oldest son is coming home for the weekend and we're going to have a belated birthday celebration for him.
Ya can't beat love when all else fails...Sylvia
