I got praised and admonished in the span of an hour.
Dr. Godinez lectured me for skipping meals and not drinking water. I don’t know how they expect me to do either of these things. I have pains in three different areas of my stomach, so the last thing I want to be doing is putting MORE things in that space. And when I am getting intravenous fluids for 10-13 hours a day (19 hours yesterday), who has room for water??
But then, out of the blue, I got this really sweet note on my public Facebook profile from an old co-worker:
I won’t front; I cried a little. Teaching is such an interesting profession, the way it has ripple effects down the road that most teachers never even find out about. I am grateful to have gotten a glimpse of one of those ripple effects today.
