Advice on how to go about getting my old job back.

OK, guys, I really want some help.

If you've been reading, you know that I was recently let go from my job at my primary care clinic (where I have been a patient for 26 years) after 3 months, because my doc decided that he "could not afford to keep me".

Thing is, I LEFT a great job because this man called and begged e to come and work or him. He used a 26-year relationship as bias, and he used my trust to lure me in and screw me over. Now I have no job, and my oldition has been dissolved.

Here's the deal: I worked at a cardiology clinic that was affiliated with a certain hospital, and at the time I left, the clinic was in the process of merging with another clinic, and also with another hospital. There is currently no opening for an NP there, at least by the hospital's webpage (I have yet to reach a warm body). My old clinic has said that they are more than happy to have me back, so that's a plus.

Now, by rights, my jack-wagon ex-doc SHOULD call the hospital and use whatever influence he has to make this happen, get my old job back, since he's the reason I left, and the reason I'm in this mess now. Thing is, I don't think Criss Angel could pull that off on his best day (although I would like to watch him try!).

So, barring a miracle, how best to approach this? Call and explain the situation, (Hey, this was what I did, what I can do, and what I'm willing to do, sign a contract or what-have-you), write a letter and send it in with my resume', or another approach?

I know it's a long shot, especially since there's no job posted. But I genuinely LOVED this job, I was stupid to leave it, and I'd give almost anything to go back.

Anybody have any ideas, or am I just SOL?
