    Keep up the PT. Will help. Saw his NP - she was cool, I liked her. She said the doc was slammed.... she answered all my questions and said "I was the exception and not the rule" when it came to this.... Just asked how much I could work out (to help lose some weight) and get my heart stronger. She scheduled me for another EKG in 2 weeks and see the doc 2 weeks after that :notsure: I already had a follow up from the last episode for Sep 13... new appt is the 20th. Told the girl "guess I should cancel my other appt" She checked both her systems (they are in the middle of changing over) and said "no, you don't". Oh, well....

    Have a fun night @ work. Night.

    The CFO and I had a talk about the trailer last night. We agreed to foot 1/2 the trailer cost, very reasonable, if he meets certain conditions.

    *He learns how to drive the Tacoma. This is non negotiable. We are not helping him buy a truck.
    *He starts to save better than he has been doing. He does well but should be doing better.
    *He starts keeping a real schedule of his side jobs. He has a schedule for his customers that he fertilizes and applies weed control for already. He needs to expand on this schedule.
    *He starts doing the work for his two customers on our street and our work when he gets home after work. This is non negotiable. He needs to realize that having his own company is not a 9 to 5 job. I am also paying him for a good portion of the work that needs to be done here. He also needs to understand that even though he live here he does need to treat the work as part of his job.

    Last night we told him to get weeding at the next door neighbors home. He did half of the yard and will finish up tonight after work. It is a small step start. We are trying to teach him that by doing the quick and easy jobs after work and during the week he will have more time on the weekend for other jobs.

    Honestly he has a strong work ethic but time management and money management is a struggle.

    BTY I did not know your knee was hurting. Keep up the PT and it will heal. I just had a boot on my left leg removed for a slight strain on a tendon in the foot.

    Sounds like a good plan. I'm sure he'll get it figured out. :thumbsup:

    Morning Folks:hattip:. Been having a tough go of things with the missus and her leg. In June she had a bad cut(6 stitches) on her anlle that cut down to the achilles tendon. The ankle doc put her in a boot to immobilize the ankle in case of a nick in the achilles. Fast forward, boot came off and now has knee pain. 2 ultra sounds, 1 xray and an MRI and mixed reports. 3 doctors later they dont know if it's a tear in the tendon, ruptured bakers cyst or a strained muscle:confused:. Almost 6 weeks of pain and no relief in site. Now I know why they say doctors are practicing medicine :eek:. Other than that, I'm doing good.
    Take care of the knee Rob and follow the therapists orders. Dont want ossues when put hunting and fishing:D.
    How are you making out Sue? Hope they take care of your issue. Wishing you the best.

    It didn't fit my life at the time. It also had a few niggling issues that I did not have the money to fix properly. It would have been a great second vehicle.

    Finally got to the root of the problem Tom. Ruptured Bakers cyst and a shot of cortisone for the tendonitis in the right arm. Cyst problem can take up to 3 months to work out according to the doc. Hopefully she'll be getting around better soon.
