Last day of work

Today is my last day of work. I am taking 4 weeks off. I sure hope that will be long enough. I have so much to do in the next couple days. Hope I can get it all done!! Have to do a bowel prep (uugg) on Monday so won't be doing anything except visiting the bathroom a hundred times

Not much longer now. Surgery is on tuesday. I am so ready to get it over and done with and get on to healing.

Wish me luck!!!!

I wish you the best Poisonivyjc. Today is my last day too. I'm pretty well wrapped up now and need to wait out the last few hours of the day.

Re: Last day of work

All the best to you both! My last day felt so weird: I found myself looking at all my colleagues in the break room, thinking of each, "No fair: YOU'RE not having uterine surgery." While my saner self was saying, "Dude, Turanga-that's a guy."

They'll hold the fort without you, as you probably have for them in the past. When you return, things will go back to a better kind of normal sooner than you'd think!

Re: Last day of work

Thanks everyone. It was nice today. My boss got me a nice box of things. I have to do a bowel prep so she got me some nice soft toliet paper, apple juice, a candle (scented) and some other nice things for recovery. I thought it was really nice. Everyone was so supportive!! I work with the best people ever.

Good luck to all my hystersisters on there big day!

Re: Last day of work

Poisonivyjc that was really nice of your boss to do that for you. The peeps that I work with are freaking out about how long I will be gone and when will I be back and is there any way that I might be back before the 6 weeks?... On the other hand, I have three weeks left before I go and I really hope that they see exactly what I do while I am gone. Maybe have more appreciation upon my return... (crossing fingers)..

(Call me jealous of your thoughtful gifts hee hee)

I hope your surgery does go well, and I look forward to hearing how your progress is going.

Hi Ronirae. They will miss you that is why they are freaking out!! I know that you do a good job and they don't want you to go. My office is just a really close knit family. It was really nice of her and who knows, maybe yours will do the same.

Hey, if they don't really appreciate you now, they sure will while your at home taking care of yourself.

Re: Last day of work

Sending luck to you poisonivyjc!

My last day is monday and I am the one freaking out- no substitute for me yet because it has to be a certified media coordinator and the teachers are asking me so many questions- like I am leaving for the year... not just four weeks...

Cant wait till monday is over so I can get tuesday bowel prep done and then surgery wednesday...

Re: Last day of work

Good Luck poisonivyjc! I am sure everything will be fine.
Dawn2sea.. geez! the teachers you work with almost sound like my co-workers. (but not nearly as bad) They even had to the nerve to ask me did I consider postponing my surgery because someone had a prepaid vacation she coudn't cancel. You don't wanna know what I told them..LOL
Will be off for 4 weeks in October (surgery Oct 3rd) The waiting is the hardest part...
