Whee! I'm employed again!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well, technically I always was, but I went for a meeting about my back to work program. I left it with a day / evening rotation on gyne/antipartum It's not my favourite area to work, but when I was floating I went there lots so I know what the ward is like.

The meeting went very well. My only real restriction is the amount that I can lift, but the functional capacity test that I did a few weeks ago had me lifting from the floor up to shelves of varying heights, repeatedly. I don't do that kind of stuff in my job.

They are going to talk to the manager of the ward, but in the meantime the position is being held for me and no one anticipates any issues with my restrictions, so the position is 99.9% mine!

There will be another meeting once I've been formally awarded the position, probably within the next 2 or 3 weeks. That will be to discuss the actual work program itself and the hours.

I had more than an hour to kill so I went around the hospital visiting wards to see colleagues. I can't believe how many changes have taken place. People have either quit, retired or moved to different wards or hospitals.

I also talked to my case worker about Jaclyn. She had asked me how things were going and I mentioned Friday. I also mentioned that the chairs we are sitting in are not comfortable and aren't designed for sitting doing the type of work we're doing for any extended period of time. So hopefully they'll find us some better chairs.

I go back to the work trial tomorrow again, and the computer guy had asked me if I could help train 2 girls who are starting tomorrow.

And!!! I the insurance company thinks they owe me money. It seems that they had based my monthly income on 27 hours per week, when in fact I was working a 0.8 position which works out to 31 hours per week. So I may get some back pay for my disability! If so, that will be great!

I can't believe that after struggling to stay afloat that things are suddenly just falling into place. I'm afraid to stop and think about it for fear of jinxing it.

Boy - I can sure relate to that!

I really think you'll be okay, Linda. You've gone through quite enough trials & tribulations: I think your time has come to be in a good place again.

Congratulations!
