Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Back To Work I Go

...sort of.

Tomorrow was supposed to be my first day back at work since my operation. There were a lot of ups and a few downs between November 4th and January 3rd, but the currently "hot" down is the fact that I haven't been cleared by my medical team to return to work full time.

Which is frustrating, because as you can see from my previous post, I'm feeling pretty great.

But I may not be in less than a week. Details will follow, but the short version is this: the chemo I ultimately chose is both experimental and highly toxic - so my ability to work over the next six months is very much up in the air. I may react well enough to be of some use to Shaw Media, but I may not.

I think my coworkers know that I miss seeing them every day, but I also quite miss the creative atmosphere, the challenge of constant improvement, and even the frustrations that come with pitting those things against more mundane financial targets.

Basically, I'm not interested in becoming a full time iPad jockey. Although I am pretty damn good at Catan now.

But the rules dictate that I can't return to work until I have paperwork allowing me to do so. I also won't get paid full time until said paperwork is done.

So my triumphant return is looking more like a one day office tour.

But hey, feeling better than they say I am is not the worst problem in the world!
