Hey all! :H
Sorry I've been off, not a snob, just been busy since the 2 deaths in the fam, for those who are familiar.
Any way, I have been going for more EPI's due to bone leakage, but doing better.
I have been cleared to return back to work as a teachers assistant for 1st and 2nd graders. This is also for only 15 hours a week! That's what I got for the hours even before I had the surgery!
Well, I got the dr's ok, restrictions of no lifting more than 15 lbs, no bending or twisting. So, doesn't that sound ok???? Well I sure thought so, but my principal didn't!
He said that the backpacks could weigh 15 lbs!! DER! First of all, what f1st or 2nd grader should be carrying a 15 lb backpack in the first place???? Second of all they are old enough to carry their own things, I'm not their mother and they need to learn for themselves! :W :W :W
As for the twisting and bending....well I know my limits on that perfectly! He used the example that what if I was to be sitting with one student and then another calls out to me, well I would twist my head around and part of my back too, which I did in front of him with no problems, and he said I shouldn't! I don't have hardware like some, but do have caps and just the cages and screws, I know my limits! ~X( ~X( I also told him that I am the type to rotate my who body toward the child, because 9 out 10 times, you will have to get up any way and see what they are talking about!
Also the teachers I work with, they all know my situatuion and have accomadated me since all of last year with help so I don't have to lift things that are too heavy, or bend!
L) L) L)
Well, I got another letter from the dr to state "no restrictions" so we will see what happens!
Also to make situation worse, my FMLA is up today! My start day is on Monday the 1st! why did they wait sooo long??? I had the letter on time! this is bogus!
Not happy X( X( X( X(
Thanks for listening!
