I can't seem to believe that I am approved. It seems so surreal. When I called the surgeons office, the lady who answered the phone says "so you heard the good news?" WTF and you didn't call me? Are these people mental? Oh well, she said that I would have to wait until tomorrow to schedule a date. The lady that does that was off today. Said that she would call me first thing in the morning. We did go over the calendar a bit and she said that what I was looking at wasn't unattainable. I really would like the week of the 7th of June. I actually have NOTHING written on my calendar that week. No appointments coming in at work so I would sit for a week and do nothing. Nothing scheduled for Boy Scouts. A glorious week all together. Plus my b'day is Saturday the 4th. I wasn't going to have a b'day cake anyway, but pre-op diet gives me an excuse to not get upset about it!
I am trying to figure out however how much time I should take off work. I have very easy desk job. Sometimes I have to go out in the field, but since school will not be in session that will be avoidable. Also, the week that I am looking at is a no court week for me. I am however not tied to my desk. If I want to get up and walk around, I can. I set my own appointments and even if I have someone coming in, I don't have to see them if I don't feel good (people really don't complain even if they do show up if their probation officer doesn't need to talk to them today). I don't want to take too much time off because I want to save my time, but I don't want to push it too hard either. Any suggestions?
