      Mary,
      After all you have been through, it is great to hear you are well enough to return to work, and hopefully a somewhat normal life. Best of luck with your new job, and hope your hurdles are all behind you now.
      Take care

                    Wow, it really was nice getting all that support . Today went well lots of computer learning and the such I think I will enjoy it. Boy I was exhausted after the eight hours. I went to class but started feeling a bit yucky my professor noticed asked me what was up and told her. She sent me home and said I could attend the class one hour on one day and another hour on another day to make it a little easier on me while I am doing the day time training. What a relief because I didn't think I could handle all of that at once.

                    Well, we will see how tomorrow goes!

                          It is good you have a boss that is caring enough to help you out that way, just remember to take it easy and stay hydrated

                            I'm glad you had a productive day yesterday. Hopefully you will stay healthy and able for future days to be the same.
                            Try to not overdue it. Rest when you can. It will make a world of difference.
                            Please remember we are not robots. We are people living with a large heart that needs to have more rest than the normal person.
                            Let us know how today went for you.
                            Take care[/i]

                              Wow! I am tired. I got off an hour early today. Got lucky my trainer's had a small emergency at her place so I got to go home. I went and took an hour nap before class. I think I can handle it though
