It's been 7 weeks since stage 1 surgery and I went back today.  I had to resign from my job due to me having my second surgery so close to the first.  So, I applied to be a substitute teacher.  I thought it would take a while before I got all the paperwork done, but it took an hour (because I had worked for the school district for 4 years) and on my first eligible day, I got a call.  It was a class I used to work in, so it was nice.  I really don't feel too tired.  I am working tomorrow in the same class and have a job for next week, too. 
I am so relieved that everything went well and I can start making money again.  Getting all these hospital bills and not working is very stressful!

Glad it's working for you. Keep resting lots and taking care of body1
Those things we keep trying to do get easier not because the feat gets easier but our ability to "do" gets better.
