My buddy next door has been home for over a month now due to knee surgery. Like he says, he'll find out how important he is at work when he's healed.
When I had sinus surgery I recovered at work. When I had hernia surgeries they told me to take some time off, so I did and started another career, lol. One of my old bosses actually stopped over a month ago and asked if I could come in on a part time basis... it's been 14 years... I don't think so, lol.

That's quite a compliment that your old boss wants you back after 14 years!!!

My surgery has me in and out of the hospital in a few hours, but the surgeon wants me on "light duty" for 4 - 6 weeks. little does he know I'm on it 24/7/365.

It struck me as very odd, Andy.
I imagine them going none-union he has a problem finding someone.

I had to have Shrek take me to work on the Monday after surgery so I could access my computer and e-mail. I had to find the Medicare calendar templates and resend them to the two in my office. They had deleted them thinking they were not important. I got a couple more calls like that, Shrek finally told them to get lost, I was on sick leave.

Since my "4 weeks" was for the Robotic surgery and I ended up having it AND the open surgery, I could need 2 more weeks...I'll see how I feel.

I'm trying to decide what I want for dinner while watching all the "Championship Sunday" hype.
This is the first year I remember them turning the conference championship games into games that were bigger than the Super Bowl itself. Championship Sunday? Championship Wednesday media day? Give me a break. Good going Goodell.

I haven't turned on the TV today.

Getting ready for my grandson this afternoon. He and I are watching the game this afternoon. If he tires of that, SO gets him. I have him today, all day tomorrow plus Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. He'll be sick of Grampy by the time he goes home on Wednesday.

I proved to myself yesterday that I need just a bit more rest and strengthening before I go back to work. Two hours cleaning the kitchen and I was wiped out. I'm still feeling a bit weak by the end of the day, but not sleeping well either, since I've been napping during the day. I need to get back on a regular schedule...I have less than two weeks.

Mentally, I am ready to be at work.

I know that as soon as you start feeling better you think you ARE better, but the doctor knows best how much time it generally takes before you are ready to put in a full day's work. They should not take away your option of a first choice vacation, IMO, which doesn't count for anything. LOL
