@Hip4life, I was worried that you were still worrying about that black cloud. Honestly do you think if you "reminded" them that you were doing all of that lifting work before surgery, they'd maybe give you a little bit of a break? That is so frustrating and I'd probably be mad at my boss! Brain fog, YES. Very unfortunate side effect of the anesthesia (in my opinion, not a medical authority!) Mine seems to be a little better but I still have those moments.....although no particular incident comes to mind right now. See, that's what I'm talking about! It could also just be the stress of your job situation. If you think about it, let us know how it goes Thursday. I'll be saying little prayers for you sister!
