Back to work today, it went well. I am very grateful for the people I work with, no one expected me to jump in with both feet immediately, and welcomed me back warmly.
I sent an email to our team expressing my thanks for the flowers, kind words and prayers. I told them it would take me a couple of days to get acclimated but I hoped by Monday I would be able to make a meaningful contribution to the team again. An email from a co-worker said:
"Why start contributing in a meaningful way now? I think what you've been doing for the last 2 years has been working for you!"
Ah .. home again. It's nice to fit in.
