Interesting times we are in. I went to work on Monday and did some odd jobs here and there around the school. We went through and made sure there was no rotting food in the lockers. I found a lot of food but also a lot of coffee mugs that had milk or creamer in them so I washed them out and put them back into the students lockers. I tried to make sure to give staff who had been traveling lots of space between us just to be on the safe side for myself. We planned on letting students come back to school starting Wednesday to get their belongings from their lockers but the district canceled that and sent everyone home on Wednesday morning. I was at treatment that morning and saw the email that everyone was asked to leave immediately. We have been asked to stay home until the 30th.
Treatment went well Wednesday and it was much faster than any of the treatments I have had the last 5 months. I was told not to leave the house if possible and if I have to leave I have to wear a face mask. They said not to have contact with students if I have to go back to work. So, I can’t let them touch my pens or papers or anything like that. I had already been doing that for the most part but I’ll just do it with a mask and gloves on if we return to work. I am recovering well from this treatment. The side effects are easier to manage. It does cause me to have some wicked dizzy spells but they pass quickly. Knowing it’s just a side effect makes it less alarming when it comes on. I am grateful to everyone who has reached out to make sure we have what we need and kept us in their thoughts while we, as a community go through these crazy times. We currently have what we need.
I hope everyone is doing well and keeping their sanity while we are Practicing our social distancing.
