Metapost: Back To Work Update

Content Note: Surgery Related Stuff

I will be going to the doctor this week to receive my final "return to work" authorization, after which I will be returning to work.

Our current health/work goal is to move me to "part-time" (i.e., less than 40 hours a week) work, so that I can spend the deficit time on indefinite bed rest. This unfortunately won't free up more time for posting and commenting and emailing -- I've found that posting/commenting/emailing from bed is more difficult that I originally thought it would be, and I'm supposed to be spending that time sleeping, anyway.

My hope, as always, is that posting will continue uninterrupted in the vein that it has. The reality is that we may have some open threads or off days in September and October as I adjust to the new routine. The other downside, for those of you who aren't lurkers, is that I'm probably going to be commenting significantly less and in some threads not at all, as a function of available time. This means that if I don't respond to a direct question in the comments, it's totally not because I'm ignoring you -- I'll be reading all comments, but simply unable to answer them all. (The same will be true for emails, though I'll try to send back at least one- or two-word responses as time and ability allows.)

Because I am also the only site moderator at this time, I will point out that one way to make my life easier is to vigilantly watch your posts and try not to flame up, or use ableist language, or otherwise breach the commenting policy. The only way I can moderate from bed is to flat out delete posts, which I prefer not to do. I also heartily encourage self-moderation as applicable in the form of "please can you find another way to say that" and other gentle requests for intersectionality understanding. We all make mistakes, we all learn, we all can become better people.

Thank you, so much.

Aw, I'll miss your commenting. And I'm sorry the health stuff isn't going better. I hope going back to work goes well and that it's a positive thing over all.

I, too, shall miss your commenting. I hope that work goes well, and healing does too.

Ana Mardoll said...

Thank you. I still hope to be able to comment, just ... not 43 times a thread, which I think is my current going rate. ;)

I hope all goes well with the medical and work issues. And of course we'll understand if you need to be a little quieter here. (I never could get any kind of work or writing done in bed either.)

* hugs *
Rest well!

Poster above me - with the short link - spammer. Please send forth to /dev/null.

On topic: We hope that you can fund a balance that works for you, Ana. And we'll all try to hold the fort down appropriately. Here's hoping that the physical pain subsides and your health returns to one hundred percent.

I really like your conversation in the threads but of course your recovery is first interest, Ana. Just take your time. :)
