so today was my first day back to work….i said earlier that i would let you know what i would be doing once i found out soooo drum roll please…..
i still don’t really know! haha! the person that will be training me was out sick today so i did a little bit of work (just a taste of what i will be doing – i think). i answered phones today (which i won’t be doing much of when the normal people are working). i scanned in chart information (which was surprisingly fun). i entered in patient information (data entry). i laughed and smiled a lot today which was a far cry from my previous employment when i wanted to literally cry as soon as i was in a 10 mile radius of the building.
my day today: i woke up and got ready for work (yipee). we took otis out and i prayed that he would understand that i was leaving him today. i stopped by the gas station and got a bottle of water and a mountain dew (i didn’t want to carry a cup in since i didn’t know what kind of work place i would be in…so a bottle seemed like the best idea). i got to the hospital early so i had to wait a few minutes but it was ok. in orientation it as another guy and me. we signed some forms and listened. after all the forms were done i got a name badge and then had a physical (i had to get a flu shot and a tb test….in 2 weeks i have to get another tb test…boo….my arm hurts). had a physical….then went to physical therapy. i had to do range of motion with my arms and that was it (the other guy had to lift a 40 pound box and push a sled around)! my new manager wanted me to start today so i had to be back to HR at 1. i was able to have lunch with andy! it was wonderful to get my mind off of it being the first day. i got back to the hospital early and had to wait again. but that was ok i read my employee handbook. they called my manager and i had to wait for 30 minutes for her to come get me. she introduced me to the people i will be working with. (minus a few that were sick and off today). they all seem really nice and i think that i will enjoy my temporary home!
we had dinner out tonight since andy had a meeting at the church and wouldn’t get home until late. i got home and otis was thrilled to see me. i took him out and he howled at me all the way to the mailbox and back. while i changed he sat on the bed and whimpered at me and when i sat down he was in my lap curled up! he is a mess!
happy monday everyone! thanks for the prayers and thoughts!
