I forgot to mention that I went to my surgeon’s office this week to get the note I needed for the School Board. When I had it in my hot little hands I went into shock. “What!”, I screamed at the secretary. “You want me to go back to work on April 5th”. That’s a h*** of a lot sooner than I was expecting. Is that normal? I won’t be finished Chemo until March! I don’t even think I WILL HAVE HAIR by April 5th. She said I could review it in March when I go see the surgeon for my follow up appointment. “Damn right”, I thought.
When I delivered the note to my principal, and believe me I really did NOT want to give it to her, I told her that this note RUINED MY VACATION PLANS for MAY as I was intending to go to ITALY (with the money I’m going to win from the Lottery which I am playing with the school teachers – you’d better tell our lotto captain to hurry up and give me a call when we win so I can book my ticket).
Hey, wait a minute. I should buy some lottery tickets with my good luck charm, Cathy.
Then we’ll be e-mailing all of you from some luxury resort in Tuscany!
“Wish you were here”, I would write. <smirk>
P.S. Did I neglect to tell you that my allergic skin reaction also caused me to loose my voice? I also woke up to watery, puffy eyes, and enflamed tonsils too. How weird is that?
