Annette : No More OS Appointments
Diary entry posted Thu 6:16am 13 January 2005

Well, I went to the Doc Tuesday, and he said, "I'm done with you." Wasn't that a nice way to put it? He did mention something about a 6 months appointment. I also got him to admit that he would NOT take my hardware out if it wasn't causing me problems. My PT basically told me that my Doc was just stringing me along on that issue by saying wait a year. I guess the OS's theory is that by then I'll be used to it and won't care to get it out. I did manage to twist 4 more weeks of PT out of him, though. Thank God, 'cause I need it!

My new return to work date is Feb. 14th! BUT A) There's no school that day and B) They won't let me come back with any restrictions (and I have one for use of a cane IF I need one-just in case it snows and I still can't balance like I should). Ever try to high step it through snow drifts around a parked school bus when you fall over if you lift the good leg too high off the ground while stepping on the bad? It's just too stupid. I bet they'd let me come back if I hadn't injured myself on the job. They actually HIRED an older gentleman that uses a cane EVERY DAY since I've been off. Hypocrites.
Oh well, no going out at 6:30 in bad weather for me this year. That's not so bad.
