It is the Monday before Thanksgiving, and I am sitting at my new desk. It feels different. I have a new role. I am the EMR administrator for the Cancer Center. It was a promotion of sorts. I was already support the system but I asked for a raise to become the full time administrator and they gave it to me. This is the first time I every pushed for something and got it. Of course, the director wanted me in this position so I didn’t have to push too hard.
I am thankful for my new position. It comes with a lot of responsibilities and new things to learn. I have training December. Three days in Las Vegas. Rick is going with me but I will be in class while he is out and about.
The Vice President just walked by and welcomed me to the family! She is nice on the surface but I know I need to watch my back. Look at me already thinking negative thoughts.
At least for the next 3 days I can get my feet wet while most people are dreaming of turkey and pumpkin pie.
I have an appointment tomorrow to meet the surgeon about my hernia. I will probably post pone the operation until after the first of the year. I am not looking forward to it. I am supposed to lose some weight before the operation. I have already lost 10 lbs. unfortunately it is the same 10 lbs. that I lose and gain over and over and over again.
