What is…second day back at work?
So today was my second day back at work after a little more than a month off for deep brain stimulation surgery.
At first I was scared the surgery would never happen.
Next, I was scared the surgery would happen. (After all – it’s my brain.)
I have hemi dystonia. After working in communication for over 30 years, my brain decides – at times – it won’t “communicate” with the left side of my body. I’m blessed to work in a hospital system with some incredibly talented neurologists and neurosurgeons.
The device was turned “on” five days ago. It’s working so well. I’m walking better. My left hand is more fluid – quick to react.
This was my second day back at work. I’ve been on the couch since I arrive home shortly after 5:30pm. I forgot how much I enjoyed my Mercy coworkers. I forgot how much I love my job and the quick repartee with the individuals up and down my hallway. Thank you one-touch television recording…I knew I would miss my daily Jeopardy fix.
