Thank you everyone......I did talk to the owner of the company, who is actually who I report to. Good news is, he had my position a few years ago before he became an owner. He will be handling most of my duties while I am out. I do think an acknowledgement of our conversation is a good idea. I do not think anything formal is necessary like straydog said,and it might just make him angry. I think I will send him an informal e mail, thanking him for his understanding about my situation, and that I appreciate it. I will just briefly note what we had talked about. That way he will have it,(he can put in my file if he thinks it is necessary), and I will also have a copy of it in my files. This forum is great, and I thank everyone for their opinions on my situation, it sure helps to talk to people that have gone through the same things. I can talk till I am bluee in the face to my husband, and it is just not the same thing. He just always says "everything will work out just fine" But i guess he has never had to deal with any of this. The man is as healthy as a horse, and has never missed a day of work because he was sick, only to take care of me. LOL
My focus now is getting this over with and moving on to recovery, my goal is to recover from surgery and then get back to the physical shape that I used to be in. I know it will take time but I will get there. I really want to start being active again, and start enjoying time with my family, not just as a spectator like I have been for the last several years.
Thanks again, this forum has given me great info, allot that I would not have thought about on my own.
I hope everyone has a great pain free day.
