A Leave of Absence

I mentioned I got sick over the weekend.
Because of some health issues I have (which I talk about some here, but not much, because that is not the purpose of this blog), it's hard for me to weather any additional bugs I may catch.

After going to my doctor the other day, she advised that I need to take a leave of absence from work to recover.
Just a week.
But a week intended to keep me from missing any more work in the future.

It was incredibly difficult for me to make those calls to work, but both my employers were so, so sweet to me.
I feel the discomfort these days, not of just my body's pain, but the discomfort of being a step closer to something I've feared, which is losing my jobs because of my health problems. 

But it's really just another step in this journey called life's adventure.
Hubs took my hand today and said, "No matter what happens, we'll never lose each other."

It's really tough to navigate life and work with this situation.
I really don't like it at all.
But with his hand in mine, I always get a little extra courage.
