Thanks for the update. You'll get used to them. Its a big investment I have to believe so from now on you'll likely flinch every time anything comes anywhere near your face.

So I have to go back in for more surgery in two days. They have to clean up more of the tear that they noticed in my updated scans. They are also worried about a possible blood clot that seems to be forming. I might be admitted early so the can monitor if a clot is forming.

My recovery time has been pushed back to up to 10 months. My friend went to my scan with me today and has been super supportive. He informed me that he has been fired as a trainer and encouraged me to sue the company to cover my losses. He's seeked a lawyer and the company can't go after him outright so we agreed that as long as I don't name him in the suit he will admit to fault and there will be no hard feelings.

I talked with the lead trainer (my other friend) and he is on board with it. He said that there was another woman 3 years ago that sued them and she didn't even need surgery. She just had months of physical therapy and she was partly at fault for the injury. She settled for 85 grand. Much of that had to go to her expenses but that's still a healthy profit for something that wasn't as serious or as clear cut a case as mine. I currently am choosing between 5 legal offices that want to handle my case. We're doing as much homework as I can on the lawyer groups.

This may turn out ok. I've been druming up business selling jobs for about 14 different contractors and they all are lined up for three months so I should still receive my profit percentage on a steady schedule for the next three months so I'll be able to pay my bills during the down time. Despite the fact that my business goals and the fact that I finally got to a point to where I was going to be in a muscle and fitness, MO show in July are put on pause this may turn out to be ok. I'm actually not stressed at all.

Great News.

Have you looked into disability? I know it has a bad stigma but you all pay for it and it is there for you. Your doctor I think should be able to give you a form to fill out or maybe there is an office that you can find like the DMV that can help. Its what social programs are there for and you certainly can use all the help you can get.

Just looking out for you. Lucky we have talented Law Dogs around here that are willing to give us some steerage when needed.

Keep us informed and keep pushing, it will all be behind you in time.

Your mouth will get shredded. I used to use wax to smooth it out.

Yeah the ortho gave me some wax. Can you buy that stuff at the store or do you have to get it at the ortho?

hey man, just wanted to relay my support. i've been reading up on your story, and it sounded pretty brutal, so i'm glad you're doing all right--especially emotionally/mentally. it's great that your trainer friends are being so supportive, and that's a lot of luck in and of itself right there.

i have no legal background or anything like that, but just from watching tv and hearing the occasional horror story, the only thing i'd say you should definitely do is make sure everything that's being agreed to is being done either in writing or in a legal proceeding of some sort. of course, you might already be doing that as it is, and in that case, i hope i'm not insulting you! haha.

best of luck on the long recovery. bed rest = more time on HF!

Thanks man. Much appreciate support and advise. I've got my fancy laptop all hooked up at the hospital so I can cruise the net and watch the Kings feed online. Now if only they'd stop coming in every 30 minutes and leave me to myself.

In fairness, none of those guys could pull a proper pint if their lives depended on it. There's not a bit of head to be found in any case, so you might as well fill 'em up from the bottom.

You'll also have plenty of free time to put together a decent fantasy baseball team this season. I will say you drafted last season as though you had 2 torn pecs though.

LOL, I profited 380 dollars last year in baseball altogether. Didn't I come in second in our league?

I don't remember who came in 2nd place, only 1st. I won both my fantasy football leagues, $650 total. Still waiting for 2nd check, it's almost February.
