Bless you, however turn it on its head what is the % if 50 kids off in 1000, really small. Not trying to play it down but 1/2 won't have an infection and those that do give you the sane odds as trundling the supermarket. Infants and junior is a totally different ballgame thougn. It us the lack of normality that us challenging. Speak to you onc xcx
Thanks everyone, I'm hoping to attend leavers assembly and prom, maybe the occasional short visit, trouble is a thousand kids equals lots of germs! There's about 50 off with scarlet fever now, so I'm a bit nervous. Thanks for understanding, just feels we are being robbed of all normality and it makes me want to stamp my feet like a two year old! Love Sarah xx
Awh Sarah, sorry you are feeling like this at the moment its a flippin c $#p way to feel. It won't make up for it but as someone has suggested could you visit on key occasions when your chemo allows? There are far less bugs in secondary schools than with infant/juniors?
Easy for me to say but Florida had probably come st a good time to recharge a bit.
Sorry you are feeling so sad Sarah. I don't have any words of wisdom to add but it's good that there are others here who understand your position. You sound like a great and very caring teacher who will have equiped her students to go out in the world and do good things.
One of my worst moments was when I knew I had to miss a friend's 50th birthday party which would have involved a reunion of a lot of old friends - that induced one of my biggest weeping sessions. Rubbish isn't it?
Do try and enjoy your holiday - you deserve it.
Hi Sarah, didn't want to read and run but just wanted to say although you wont be there in the way and capacity you'd like to be, don't write yourself off. I was well all through my chemo 4 years ago and continued to work and socialise as normal, i know many others who were the same, you may be surprised at how well you cope - i hope you are x
hi all I'm having a wobbly day, or an angry day or both I'm not sure. I finish work for Easter a week on Thursday, then chemo starts. So my form, who are year 11, who I've nurtured for 5 years will have to do their last 8 weeks without me and I will miss their last days at school. We've tried to plan round it, we are having a party next Thursday, I'm signing their shirts then, school will do photos but I'm going to miss all the last stuff and I can never get that back. I'm not even sure I will be well enough to go to prom. I've spent 2 hours tonight writing their cards and now I want to just sit and cry which won't help. I'm so damned angry. We go to Florida a week on Friday and even the shine is taken off that and I'm angry about that too, but I've no one to be angry at. Sorry to rant needed to speak to someone who understands. 😔 Love Sarah
