Amira - I know exactly how you feel about being more mentally then physically. In the weeks following surgery I did some very light housework, but I completely re-organized and revamp my class that I teach, plus planned a whole extra nursing program. When I look at everything I got done, I am amazed with it to tell you the truth!
I am also really wishing to go to the south. I would love to go and I have the appropriate qualifications ( just like you, although I would be providing medical care) but I just cant do it. Physically maybe I could do it, but I have at least 16 students counting on me right now, not to mention the whole college. Plus my classes, but it really does kill me because I would love to help and I am good under pressure/stress!
Went to the doctor this morning because I have had this rash for a long time..some before surgery, but it appears to be alot worse since surgery. Saw the derm guy and he was just a jerk (I dont remember how much of this I told you guys about) so I tried his treatment for 1 1/2 weeks and it didnt help... so I saw my regular doctor again! My hgb is 13.3 woo hoo... that is one of the highest I have ever had... which means I dont have to start taking iron again! So, I am going to try a different treatment for the rash... grr :(
Still waiting for my friend to wake up! LOL most of my friends still work night shift, so I am used to waiting for them!
