hi so, oddly enough i'm officially out of work. wow! Didn't plan it, it just sort of spiraled this morning. I went to the er early this a.m. planning to get the clearance letter to return to work from the er doctor who saw me, and he refused to give it to me stating i had to see the cardiologist he recommended me to. So, I said i have to go to work can't you just write i'm ok to go back and to drive with-no restrictions? nope. so i called the cardiologist, the woman asks for my name and says oh the dr said you would be calling he has tests he wants done on you. So, long story short they want me to go for an ecco, a nuclear stress test and wear a halter thing for 24 hrs to monitor my heart rate. all unbeknownst to me. so i said ok, how soon can we schedule them? so long story short after multiple phone calls they can't get me in till may 1st. i tried calling my gp for a clearance he said no, than i tried the gynecologist he said no also, so i had to contact my boss. next thing i new HR was calling me stating i'm being placed on medical leave of absence my time would be eaten up whatever i have which isn't much to put towards my pay, and that i had to report back to work by may 14th or i would be considered terminated. also i had to schedule and appointment to return my work i.d. my cell and the other company things i had. wow. so i am trying to find another cardiologist to see me before than to speed it up. how bizarre right? so i'm home now. no one will give me the letter this company needs to return to work. i'm stuck.
