Back to Work getting closer

Postby Jeff Silvey » Sat Jun 21, 2014 8:13 am

Most people know that I have been having trouble with the old knee from firefighting. I had surgery in January. This is all on a workman comp claim. Most of you know I work for Indianapolis FD. I have been dealing with the problem sense last April. My folder is getting bigger. I have been on light duty for most of the time. I did all the therapy that was required. I got released by the ortho doc last week via doing their testing.. I have several hoops I have to jump through (that's going to hurt) :) . First one is my physical I took it this week I passed. Next is my WPE, (work performance evaluation). That's where I messed the old knee up. I hope I get through the course. I have 15 months to go till I retire but who's counting. :wink:

You! :lol:
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Glad to know you are doing better. Recovering from a major joint surgery is challenging, as I learned a few years ago.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Jeff, I thought being the engineer was "light duty". :D
