I'm taking the rest of this week, and all of next week off. My current boss, and my uber-boss both OK'd the time off.
I have sent emails to my internist and rheumatologist; my internist responded and said she's available all week; I'll try to get in to see her Friday.
Bob negotiated a deal with the water heater guys. They're putting in an extra heater, and eating the labor costs; down side is it will cost more, and I have to impress on my treasurer that it's up to him to find the extra money. The water heater guys are also not going to expect full payment upon completion, which is good. ETA at this point is Thursday.
With regard to that last, the truly important thing in my mind is that I handed off the informational emails to the treasurer. He's handling that tonight and tomorrow. Good. Let him deal with the anger. I've let him know I'm on medical leave, which is essentially what I'm on, even though it's currently set as unpaid leave. (I think I've explained the stupidity of us having to take unpaid leave for the first year of our being Tribune employees, with a bunch of money equal to that unpaid leave having been paid out to us by the Sun-Times. It's going to be touch and go for me, since I had to loan out some of that money to First Born to cover an emergency of his last month, but we'll handle it. Plus, yeah, going to get money back from the association, you damn betcha.)
Wow. Digress much, kaffyr ?
Anyhow, tl;dr - I'm off, I'll see my doctor before the end of the week, I'll help BB deal with his asshole doc tomorrow, we ... may ... have hot water Thursday (yeah, sure....) and I'm going to pay attention to my own health.
And now, I'm going to bed. The back may have eased up enough to let me sleep without quite as many painkillers.
Thanks, everyone, for your support. It has really meant a lot to me.
