The Rise and Fall of Tim

Tim got his furlough, and I'm so everlastingly glad. He'll be around more. We'll see more of each other. It'll give us a chance to see if we can live on one income, while still providing a safety net (he'll be called back to work before the end of the year).

He's all excited because it gives him a chance to focus on these renovations he's got going on at three different addresses.

Today was the first day of his furlough.

He celebrated in a big way. He fell off a ladder.

Answer: not sure yet. He won't go to the hospital.

Late Edit: Thanks, Anna for scaring Tim straight to ER. Looks like a rotator cuff tear. Pain pills (which I know that he won't take) and a sling (which he doesn't think he needs).

Yowsers!!! Someone is TELLING TIM to take a rest. Good luck with it.

Uh oh! I'm glad he got the furlough, but what a way to start it off!

Tell him to be sensible about all this and to not over-do.

Oh my, I am so sorry to hear that! Maybe this will force him to get some rest. In any event I'm glad he's getting to have this time and I know you'll give him lots of TLC!

I had to head out bright and early for some training in Clarion today. I tried to call Tim several times and got no answer. He was hauling a load of scrap. Men are a mighty peculiar creature. No offense Bob.

In the words of Irish/Aussie comedian...

"Tim. GO STEADY BIG FELLA!"

Goodness. Glad he got his furlough, and glad he has plans. A moment to just breathe and enjoy might be nice for y'all too.

PS Seriously, hope he looks after that shoulder so he CAN be useful in a couple of weeks time!

None taken. I'm sure you're familiar with the saying, "can't keep a good man down." And although I don't know Tim, I am sure of his goodness!

Oh no! Just when he gets some time to himself, a difficult injury. Hoping for the best for him.

Be very careful with a rotator cuff tear, I ignore mine and now surgery is November 12. 6-8 week recuperation and 3-4 months till back to normal.

Glad he wasn't hurt worse. Hope he heels soon...

He actually hurt himself pretty badly on this one. He tore the muscle from the bone. He needs surgery, and there is a very real possibility that this won't be successful. The doctor thinks 60% chance of success.
