I am so grateful for my job. Not only do I love it, but it has helped look after me. I have been able to stay home on disability and get well without worrying about work. Also, anything major I have needed to deal with this whole cancer rollercoaster that wasn't covered by our provincial health care has been covered by my work health benefits to a reasonable amount as well. A few wigs were covered and, while checking with them today, I just learned that they will pay the cost of my foob (fake boob...oh, sorry, "mammary prosthesis") and a few mastectomy bras I will need until I can have my reconstruction late next year. They will even cover the compression sleeve I will now need to wear on my right arm sometimes. When I return to work I have help towards finding a personal trainer/ physical therapist to rebuild my strength too.
So grateful right now. Feeling so blessed. :)
