Not broken after all...

I went to the orthopedic doc today. After he reviewd the X-rays, he informed me that the bones in my hand aren't broken, but the tendons and badly bruised. He replaced the splint I had to my elbow with a wrist style velcro brace. Said to start exercising my fingers to flex those tendons. I go back in two weeks. The possibility of physical therapy has not been eliminated.
He did, however, sign the form NOT allowing me to return to work. Oh well...2 more weeks of insanity.

Somehow, some day, I'm gonna make it all right, but not right now. I know you're wondering when. But you're the only one who knows that.

Yep...I broke my hand!!!

So I'm at a jobsite today, using a scissor lift, and I raised it up and SMACK...had my had on the top slammed into the attic truss hurt like no tomorrow!!!

It swole up, and throbbed the rest of the day. I could barely lift anything about an hour after smashing it, because it hurt so bad! I called the boss about an hour later and told him...and said I need to get it looked at. He suggested putting ice on it and wait til I get back to Bluffton...which I did.

The doc said there are 2 fractured bones in my hand. Gotta wear a hard splint for 4 weeks, then see an orthopedic doctor.

Yea, this is gonna be fun...I'm just sayin

The search continues....

Despite having an apparently favorable telephone interview last week with a large fire sprinkler company, I have not been offered a position. Therefore, I am still searching for a job. I have actually not stopped looking. I cannot continue working in the field. I am not physically capable of working in attic spaces where the temperature is 100+ and the heat index is at least 120!

If you, or anyone you know, knows of any job in any part of the country (or world) that's related to fire sprinkler design, please give them my name and email, or pass their info to me and I will contact them!

81 and humid today....just sayin
