It might be hard to believe, but I miss working in the Emergency Department at the hospital. Technically I’m still employed there as a nurse, but I’ve been on medical leave for over five years. I hope that I can go back one day soon.
I’m not sure what brought on this latest desire to get back to work, perhaps the fact that I was cleaning out my closets the other day moving winter clothes to the back and bringing summer clothes to the front when I came across all of my nursing uniforms. I want to get back into them someday soon.
I’ve also been to the hospital a few times this past month for some tests – MRI’s on my knees and an ultrasound on my thyroid, plus I somehow managed to get some cedar mulch in my right eye that had to be picked out in the ER, so yes I’ve been to the hospital a few time and I’ve seen lots of people that I know. Of course all of my old coworkers ask me every time they see me when I’m coming back and so on.
My Crohn’s has been quite a bit better lately so maybe it is possible that I can get back to work before the end of the year. We’ll see what happens. I’ve thought that before and had set backs.
