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.

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 :)
