Sorry to hear about the rotten letter. I know you were worried about the job situation. Lets hope that with someone filling in for you they realize how good you are at your work and keep the temp on until you can go back.
Today was my first day back teaching. I brought along ice packs and hoped for the best because I teach three 85 minute periods in a row. But I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have swelling and didn't even take time to ice during the day because I had no pain. Tomorrow I see my OS and officially get the release to go back to work, but he is accustomed to me going back when I feel like it. It was great to be back with the kids. We now have just a week before final exams, so there is a lot to catch up on. My sub was excellent, but she of course did things in her style, so I need to know where my students are before I can write the final. On top of that I am the advisor for NHS and we will be selecting new members next Thursday after the first two finals, so there is a lot of work with that right now too. I am going home asap for a loooong nap. It was great but I am tired. That getting up at 5 A.M again is a killer.
Hopefully we will hear back good news after your PT appt. I'll keep you in prayers.
