Thatís a relief but even more of a relief that heís back at work full time as of this week but not on the full work schedule yet.
Well, at least nothing is coming out of your pocket.

If you think that he's not getting better, just remember what it was like when he was first hurt. That should bring into better prospective.

Hello John:

I apologize for being unable to answer you or anyone else. I've been in so much pain and anger lately due to RA, that I feel exhausted and can barely move. I will reply to you and the other Great Members when I am feeling somewhat better. I HATE severe RA!!!! Thank You!

He definitely is Better. I just thought he'd be totally fixed by now except for the 3% the Dr. mentioned.

Thank you for taking me back. I remember him in the ER, looking totally in pain with the bone almost breaking the skin and pretty broken up with the ribs and shoulder. Ya, you're right. Even after he signed himself out of the Hospital(he wanted to be home) he couldn't do anything barely. He's put so much effort into his recovery. He's doing darn Good. He's back at work full time now but not a full schedule.

I hope that you and your Ping are getting along Good.

It all takes time, luckily there hasn't been a setback (like two broken toes, and a broken leg).

I'm glad that he's put a lot of time into his recovery, it will pay off in the long run.

HA! You're not kidding. Like anyone we know? I still can't believe that you did that. He'd be sleeping in the garage then. j/k

Are you healing okay? Your toes must still be pretty sore, I guess. I still don't know how a broken bone doesn't hurt. All the tissue around it would hurt so it's not exactly painless.

Since you put it that way, he certainly is. Yes, he's Good at knowing when to start the physical therapy and what exercises that work for his situation. When he's in therapy he's Very dedicated to having the Best outcome that he can.

Yes, I'm healing fine. I'll wait for the final x-rays to be sure.

No, the toes only hurt when I press on them, same with the leg.

No, it's not painless, that's why there are Lortabs (hydrocodone).

Yes, the pump is working fine.

My last A1c was 6.4, my endo is very happy with that, considering that I started out with a 9.6. And that was under the care of my GP, that's why my GP sent me to an endo, who put me on several shots a day, and 2 kinds of insulin plus metformin, then the pump, with 1 kind if insulin, and no more Metformin.

Ahhh! So, you need pain killers because of your broken bones eh? Why? Because broken bones hurt. I rest my case. I hope that you are not on them too long.

Good Man! 6.4mmol/L Great to hear. Naaa! You don't need all those drugs. That is amazing. How did you get to 9.6 in the first place? Did/do you have IR? 9.6 isn't that Bad really. Okay, it's Bad but we both have seen 14.5mmol/L to 17.2mmol/L. Now that's Really Bad. I don't know how those People are still alive. Sure hope someone can help them. Anyways, you keep your Good work going. Hey, you're talking decimals. Brilliant!
