Thursday I tried to tell my boss that I can not work all the hours that she needs me to for her surgery. She told me that everyone but me was working their 40 hours and that since she will be unable to cover my hours because of her surgery. I was told that I would have to do the 40 hours plus the extra work while she was gone and when she comes back she would let me have a 3 day weekend. The note the rhuemy sent said that I would need to lessen my hours and rest more often then normal employees. I should be limited to hours of work and then time to rest and maybe I could work a few more hours than. My boss said because it said should be and would need to be lessen hours more than normal employees. She had this read by HR and they said this did not state what my limits were nor how many less hours I would have to work. I just don't know what I will do now. I guess I am set to do the hours and if I do more damage, get sicker, or fall over they will have to prop me up at the desk and act like I am still ok. Last week she put me doing 37 hours and I thought I was going to die. Ok I guess it is enough ranting and whining about my problems and work, I will have to make it some way. I guess for the next 4-6 weeks I will be limited to work and sleep. I can't ask my daughter to help me now knowing that she too is having her problems with her health. I did talk to my gp and she said he has a speciality and she don't but that she can't believe that he is not taking in account the problems I have been having and wrote a no work sheet. She said she would of. Well if I manage to make it past all of the work I will see you guys as often as I can and will miss chatting with all of you. Take care and be healthy.

I did want to let some of my very concerned friends on here know: My rhuemy does have a setup for emailing and getting what you need. I went out of chat here last night and sent an email for the note to be redone and what had to be in it. I also sent him a copy of my schedule with all the changed that have been done all month long and what hours I have been doing. I got my reply today just minutes ago. He is not happy with the schedule I have been keeping and said he had no idea. He went on the net and did a search for my home office and sent an email and put a call into them that I am not to work more than the 24 hours a week no more 32 hour days until further notice and that I am to work 8 hours and have 24 off. If I am working a 8 hour shift time needs to be made for me to have a 30 minute lunch time to rest somewhere.
