I'm beginning to think (well actually after your 1st post mentioning him) your Boss is a real A H! I can speak from experience having had a triple cervical fusion, EVERY situation is different....you are his employee, he knows what is going to happen to his business while you are gone! He is already pushing your buttons by saying all of these NON empathetic things to you...IGNORE him and focus on YOU and what YOU need! Let his AMAZING SUPER dooper quick healing girlfriend come and fill in for you while your out recuping....bet her piece of cake fast healing fusion starts to give her spasms from sitting at your desk working for her slave driver I mean boyfriend for just a few hours....lol picture it, enjoy the humor of it!
No, seriously we WILL all come to Florida and hold you prisoner if you even try to go back to work before your body says its ready!!!
