Going for follow-up Xrays this morning. It has been 2 weeks since the bike accident and although I am only taking long-acting ibuprofen-type meds, I continue to have constant aches in both arms. Most motions to do things involve pain in either a wrist, a forearm or the elbow. Not severe pain or long-lasting pain, but constantly nagging. What a bummer!
Anyway, I am going to work after the Xrays to see if I can perform the necessary manual tasks I must do without any compromise of safety for my patients. I will go into one of my partners' cases and try to do things with him present. If things work out OK, I might even do a case or two this afternoon, if they need the help (Fridays are usually light days).
I've talked to our scheduler for me to start back Monday at the big hospital (lots of help around, if I need it) with a light load.
I need to get back to work cause we are on a non-salaried, eat-what-you-kill system and I have been off half this month already.
Gotta make what I can before Obama cuts my income and taxes me into the po house!
