I have to share this here, because this is pretty cool


I had my decompression surgery on June 19 and then had a CSF leak repair on July 23. I was out of work completely until September 22. I then went to work part time. I started off as 3 half days a week and eventually moved up to 2 full days and 3 half days. I will get to return full time starting January 5.

Yesterday I walked into work and one of the teachers said he had something for me. I stopped, he went into his room and came out with a folded over wad of cash and tried to hand it to me. I initially argued but eventually did take it.

The teachers at my school, knowing I’ve been part time this semester and so have had smaller checks, they took a collection of money and he handed me a little over $400. I was left speechless and actually cried (I do not cry at anything or for anything).

I decided I work for the most amazing people on the planet.


That’s awesome!!


Wow!!! It's so wonderful that you work with people who care so much about you and are willing to help you out in such a way!


Cole how wonderful! That is a great story and you deserve that pick-up. I’m also glad you are making progress, you had a long road.

That is so wonderful! What amazing coworkers! :)


They really are amazing coworkers and I am so glad I work where I do.


That’s great,Cole! Merry Christmas!


I truly am blessed. I was absolutely shocked. It really allowed me to be able to pay my car payment as well as buy a few Christmas gifts. One of the ladies that contributed, I bought presents for her 2 boys....she got upset with me and said I was supposed to spend it on me not others...I told her it was my money to do with as I wish :)


How wonderful! So glad to hear yo are getting back to normal.
