Well, I did it folks! I returned to work yesterday.
It was a struggle getting into my car, as the above video attests too, but I did it!
I've been off work since I fell on the ice February 18th of this year and ruptured my quadricep muscles in my left leg. I couldn't move my left leg below the knee.
After surgery and a long healing process and continuing physical therapy sessions three times a week, I returned to work at the hotel yesterday.
I wasn't sure how my endurance would hold up. I survived the eight hour shift (3 PM to 11 PM) but I was exhausted when I got home.
When I got to bed about 11:45 PM last night, I didn't get up ONCE. Usually I get up at least once or twice for a bathroom visit.
NOT ONCE FOLKS.
I was dead to the world until I woke up at my usual time of 7 PM this morning.
Ah but it was good to get back to work. I'm a very active fellow and the past three months of inactivity was turning me into a slug. I need activity. Not a marathon run but just activity.
I need that social interaction with other people.
I need to have something to work my week around, which is what my part-time job at the hotel affords me.
And I need the money. Yes folks, I need the money to keep up with the ever increasing costs of maintaining the lifestyle to which I've become accustomed. Those annual trips to Toronto and Hollywood don't come free. They cost.
I'm back folks!
