Dan's Going Back to Work

Well, it has been a great three months. 

When Dan first had his surgery, I was unsure of how things would be with him home all the time.

And, sure, we have had some rough times.

But, we have also had some good times.

Some really good times.

It has been awesome to have him home to help with dinner.

It has been amazing to watch him become so close with our daughter.

Just knowing I would see him when I pulled in the driveway was so comforting.

After a lot of thought, and many, many discussions, we have decided that Dan will go back to work at his original job.  

This is a job that was very labor intensive and involved 60 to 70 hours per week.  Dan is still on lifting restrictions, so he won't be able to do the exact same work, and today is the day he finds out what he can do there.  

I am hoping and praying that his company can find a spot for him where he can be useful but not wear his body to the ground.  I hope that he can find a spot where he can use his skills and talents, but also learn a few things.  Most of all I pray that he can do something that makes him happy and feel purposeful.  

I know that I am hoping for a lot, but I expect a lot.  If you have a spare prayer or good thought, we would appreciate it.

Speaking of prayers - my grandma who fell and broke her hip last weekend is doing amazing.  Ina and I brought her Chinese food yesterday because she had been craving it.

She was kind of hard on herself, but I was amazed to see that she was walking around with her walker after just one week.  Praise God!

I hope you all have a good week!

  1. My Dad has shoulder surgery July 29, 2011. He was on workers comp. February 28, 2012 he had another one because it still wasn't better. He finally went back to work December 2012. Not at the same job because his old one replaced him.
