Default Been out for a while

I have turned my business over to my wife and oldest son. I had a stroke following an auto accident where I had a compound fracture of my left leg and a clot caused the stroke. I have lost control of my left side but PT is helping.

The guy who ran a red light and hit me had a blood alcohol level of 2.0! My wife had a concussion and was in the hospital for 3 days also.

Typing is difficult but improving. Lots of typos. Hope to be back on more often.

Steve

Prayers for a full recovery. Good to see you back.

This my friends is exactly why you NEED to grow your business so that you do not have to work in the business. How would you survive if this happened to you? Your company needs to be able to support you without you being there as we are not invincible.

Steve I hope you have a tremendous year and take it easy.

Wow. Sorry to hear that.

I'll say a prayer that you both recover fully (and quickly).

Default Get cast off Monday.

I get my cast off next Monday. Cant wait. So far insurance has covered all bills.

Negotiating loss of income and pain and suffering with insurance company and my lawyer. He says it will probably take another month.

Getting use of my left side back more and more every day. Typing is getting easier (fewer corrections). Getting to the computer is the problem (the cast goes from my ankle to my waist).

Main problem, gained 20 pounds. My activity level has been greatly diminished.

Steve

Oh wow! Once you get the cast off, will there be some kind of rehabilitation to get your leg to flex better again after being casted for the time it has?
