My physical therapist cleared me today to go back to work. Only 2-3 hours a day at first, increasing as I can "tolerate" it… but still, it's a beginning! When I called my boss this afternoon to let him know he actually sounded HAPPY! I realize to most of you this would be a bad thing, but for me? It is a sign that improvement is really occurring. I'll take that. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that I can start making a little money again, too. It's been a long winter… in more ways than one.
