Chart & PA> You make my heart soar like an Eagle! Y'all know I'm the sensitive type don't ya? I'll toast some diet green tea to two of my fav's here on Healing Well who never seem to forget anyone! Yuze Gize are da best! Thank You, really! Just got back from the Doc's, borth my surgeon & pain. I am released for work on Monday! Light duty of course which dosn't mean skwat in construction but I'll whine like a baby if they try to make me do anything that is unreasonable! I called my boss to tell him the good news and all he said is that he will no longer let me buy anything from my best friend's company! It doesn't matter that they have the best service in the industry either. He is cutting them off because they cut him off for nonpayment! He dosen't pay his bills on time so then he gets mad at them for not selling to him???? Go figure, that's my boss, he's quite a guy! Back to the Doc, he told me that I shouldn't be having pain in my neck, I do which worries me a little even though all the shoulder, chest and arm pain is gone. I just can't imagine my neck not hurting after what it's been through??? Hmmmmm? I think the pain will gradually go away. He also said I should be able to swallow food soon too. Eating now is kind of like a controled choke. I push the food thats stuck in my throat through w/ more food untill it gets too be completely stuck, then I try to wash it down w/ something to drink. It took a lot of hunger, practice and choking to learn how to do it but desperate times call for desperate messures, right? Espessially when your a food addict like me! I'll get "er done or down" one way or another! My pain doc was glad to hear what my surgeon told me too. He gave me another script for percocet because he said there are no oxycodone #15's anywhere locally and I beleived him, dagnabitt! All for now, I have to cook myself something healthy> escarole, chicken and beans, just like Angie my Itallian Gram used to make me when I was a little Pete or Piero> Itallian penicilin!
Love you people and thanks again for such a nice post!!!
