It has been a very rough week at work. We just found out that our Production/Purchasing Manager has a brain tumor. It is inoperable and very growing. He has worked for our company for at least 35 years, if not more. The worst part is that we can't call him, talk to him, send him cards or flowers, because his wife says that any mention of or reminder of work stresses him out and it seems that the stress causes the tumor to grow faster.
The good news part of this entry, makes me feel like a complete ghoul. Because due to this tragedy, I have been given the Purchasing job which means that starting this week I am now back to full time.
