i was in the hospital a little over 3 weeks ago. i was in for six weeks. anyways, when i got out i got the dr's release to start back to work the following week. unfortunately, the company i work for sat totally idle. their human resource department just had to call my store and say put her back on the schedule, but they wouldn't do this. i was waiting and waiting and waiting for something, anything to be said, but they kept their mouths shut. i even went so far as to apply for other jobs even though this is the one i wanted. i called my lawyers office early yesterday afternoon, and they updated me on my case. i thought just for the heck of it i would let them know what was happening. i told the associate i was speaking with and she told me she would definately let my lawyer know. i thought cool, but i didn't know what was going to happen from there. anyways, early this afternoon i received a phone call from my district manager telling me i was welcome to start back to work again next week. i thanked him greatly, and told every soul that knew about this situation i finally got my job back. the good news besides getting my job back is that i get to work where i love (been here for 3yrs). i am very excited. sorry just had to share my great news. i didn't work for almost 10weeks and i have 2 children to take care of now i can it's awesome.
