I am getting myself so stressed out over this whole kidney stone thing and the time off required, which really isn't much. The problem is the unknown. I won't know till after the procedure whether he put a stent in or not, so I won't know if I need a follow-up in a week and then another day off to have the damn thing out in another couple weeks. Our schedule is already done till the end of February, which is why this is such a problem. I also need to get my band unfilled per hospital policy. The only time my surgeon's office could accomodate me is today at 1, except I'm working way across town so would never be able to get there. Now my only hope is that one of the interventional radiologists will do it at the hospital Tuesday or Wednesday, so I can just buzz out of work for a half hour. UGH.

Now I'm growing a giant acne cyst on my chin... that's what happens when I am FREAKING OUT over stupid things.

Really what it comes down to is I feel like I've really pissed off my bo/ss with this. I know she understands, and is willing to be flexible. It's just those unknowns. I can't do anything about it ahead of time, and she prefers that you try to get your shifts covered yourself first. And this band thing... what am I supposed to do? I haven't even had a chance to tell her about the band thing yet -- I was just so focused on getting the day or two off for the procedure.

I could just scream.

You poor dear, I missed your last post. I hope everything works out. I know it's stressful to miss work, but seriously...this is not something you can avoid, just make sure you have a Dr.'s excuse for every little thing. Hang in there!

Im sorry sweetie! This doesnt sound like a fun situation but just take some time for yourself and get done the things you need to do for your well-being. Work can hold for what you need to do for you. It will all turn out ok! Keep your chin up!
