    Time for DH to go back to work! He's been on workmans comp. for nearly four months now.
    He's feeling fine, although a bit light-headed from the blood thinners and change in BP meds.
    The orthopedist has released him, saying his leg is fine.
    The internist (both the one that cared for him in the hospital & our own) won't release him to go back to work because the blood clots are only 50% improved. They say it could take a full year for them to resolve completely.
    DH is miserable. He is sitting in front of the TV day after day. He looks for excuses to go back the police dept. and talk with his buddies.
    It. is. time. for. him. to. go. back. to. work. [​IMG]



    End of rant. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Been there-done that.
    DH was off for EIGHT, count 'em eight months last year after having rotator cuff surgery.
    After about 2 weeks all I could think of was, "How on God's green marble are both of us gonna come out of this alive?". Happily we are both still alive and believe it or not, I cried the first day he went back to work after 8 months. Who knew?

    Thats how my MIL feels! She looked forward to the day my FIL quit farming so they could go do all the things she has wanted to, but they could never go anywhere. Now instead of taking her anywhere he stands over her shoulder and picks apart the way she has been doing things for 40 years [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm afraid that's how it is going to be around here; but with a twist. HIS dog has grown used to his master being home and follows him everywhere. The dog freaks if DH goes outside without him, won't eat unless DH sits there and encourages him. How in the world am I going to manage this dog when DH is gone???? I'm told DH that when he goes back to work it will be with a K9 in the backseat, whether the chief likes it or not.

    Oh boy do I know how you feel. My DH retired in Jan. I just started keeping him a long honey do list hanging near his computer. Not that he jumps to the list or anything but he does go and work outside so he doesn't have to. Either way I can get a little me time. I really have enjoyed him being home. Maybe not stuck like glue though.

    So basically what you're saying is that now, your DH will be the new K9 officer on the force? [​IMG] Just go outside with a Sharpie and write K9 Unit on his patrol car. Noone will notice, will they?

    Grits in jail for defacing an official vehicle. This ought to be good! [​IMG]

    I am sooooo glad our garage/workshop is a separate building, with TV, fridge and 1/2 bath.
