Another quick turn around. My doctor's nurse came in to the radiation room to tell me to come to their clinic when I was done. I thought it was because they changed their mind about the pain meds. It was actually because a culture they did to clear me after the MRSA eye infection came back positive for a respiratory infection, and I am not allowed to go to work for at least a month. Which, for a teacher, and the way my disability works, means not this school year. So I need to go in tomorrow (hope the building is open), clean off my desk, create sub plans, and leave some kind of message for my students so they know I'm not dying. Since I don't feel bad, well, other than radiation burns, I am completely stunned. My department head is irritated, and I left a message for my principal. I am completely stunned, especially since they just cleared me to work a month ago. I did, however, get the pain meds.
