Back At Work Full-Time!

I've finally returned to work full-time! Hurray! I got all the "t's crossed and the i's dotted" from the insurance company (bet they're glad not to have me around anymore!).

The results of my MRI were fantastic! I'm cancer-free! That one "anomalous finding" was nowhere to be seen. Praise His Holy Name!

The results of my language evaluation were decidedly more mixed. The good news is that I've retained all my thought process; the bad news is that I've a rather marked defiency when I trying to think under pressure, quickly, or multi-task. I've been advised to make the most of my cognitive therapy, focussing on these areas, while keeping these areas minimized as best I can in the rest of my day. The positive news is that - potentially - it can improve, albeit slowly.

I've explained the situation to my boss, and he's willing to let me procede at my current pace, for which I'm very grateful!

Bob, I can't tell you how good it is to have you back with us at work. Your presence there is a sure sign of God's goodness!

Hi Robert,

I am very glad to hear how well you are doing! I tried to call you a couple of times while you were still in the hospital shortly after the surgery, but there was no answer (understandably). Then it occurred to me that a call from Kaz in your then weakened state might delay your recovery:-o

I wouldn't worry too much about working under pressure and multi-tasking right now. With your determination and naturally active mind I'm sure that you'll make great progress. Besides, I sometimes have trouble with those things now, and I haven't had brain surgery!

Best wishes,
~Kaz

Well, I'm not part of the religious ring, but I do remember you as one of the funniest, sweetest people I've ever known. Good thoughts to you and your family.
