Back to Work


I’ve been out of work for nearly a month if you count the vacation time the school give us over the holiday. First I was out sick with an upper respiratory infection, which progressed to atypical (walking) pneumonia. I went back to work feeling some better, but only stayed half a day each on the two days before I flew home. I got the all clear to go home, hoping I’d continue to feel better. I only felt worse. So I called my doctor and saw him on Friday. He now says I have bronchitis and gave me steroids to reduce the selling, he said that with the steroid, I should see significant improvements by the end of the day Monday. If I did not see significant improvement then I’d have to go to the hospital for further tests and another chest x-ray. Since I do feel better, I’m not sure about significantly, I will be going to work today.

Ugh, bronchitis is not to be messed with. Take it easy on yourself

Don't feel guilty about not being at work. If you are sick, you are sick. Recovery is the first and only thing that matters. Roderick
