First of all, I would like to thank all of Y'all who have supported me throughout this last episode of Pete tripping his way through life with CP and other aflictions & issues! I'm so sorry if I haven't posted to your problems lately or forgot to say Thank You to anyone over these past couple of weeks, I honestly never tried to ingor or leave out anyone as I'm sure I did!
So anyway, I had another blast of xrays today, don't want my radioactivity to get to low! Then went to see my Neurosurgeon who told me exactly what I knew he would. I'm healing great and there was no damage done from my little fall in the hole at work. He told me to wear my collar untill the pain stopped and to put lots of ice on it. Then told me if it's still hurting in two weeks to call him and we would talk about an MRI. He then wrote me a nice official note stating I was OK to return to work as long as I don't do any heavy lifting and sent me on my way. He said my healing was ahead of the curve and looked great> I didn't mention my smoking!
I took the note to my place of employement and gave a copy to out HR girl and waited for Mr. Wacko Boss to return. He passed my office, saw me in there and continued walking down the hall like he didn't have time to stop and talk to me. So I chased him down the hallway and caught him infront of his office. He turned and without any greeting he said, when can you come back? I said tomorrow, he said, did you get a Dr's letter of release? Yes, I gave it to Madeline. He said OK and close his door behind him as he went in his office! End of Story!
So, I'll be getting up at 4:00am and be into work at 6:00am tomorrow morning. I have a big feeling I haven't heard the last of this mess! To be continued tomorrow night!
Thanks again everyone!!!
