Thread: Trimmin tree accident

  1. #1

    Trimmin tree accident

    Hi gang ,
    Been absent once again as I had a pretty severe accident . Last Tuesday I was home cutting back / trimming my tree out front &
    I fell off my FN ladder. I broke my Pelvis , broke 4 ribs, punctured my lung , shattered my Right wrist
    ( which is my watch wrist )
    they had to put it back together with plates and screws and pins.
    My employer doesn't have insurance right now as she said she was looking for ''better rates'' but if I have to be honest truth is my boss is a cheapo.
    They wanted a rehab center but w/ no insurance I would have waited for a charity bed to open which could have been weeks & who can afford that . I'm a very physical guy so I started walking around my room w/ the assistance of a high cardiac walker. Just so they'd let me go home instead.
    After 5 days in the hospital I'm home now but will be awhile b4 I can get back to wrk.
    As many of you know me here I have no patience but this 1 I have to or should I say I'm learning to , really no choice. I'm a little mobile & upright but VERY SLOW.
    Can't believe 1 can ****er himself off so bad from trimming a tree back.
    Just wanted to reach out to another part of my family & let you all know I'm still around

    I hope you’re getting some kind of follow-up care and assessment.

    All the best to you, William.

    Ouch. So sorry to hear this. Especially without insurance, it can be really expensive. We're all routing for you, and we'll try to provide a little light entertainment if you get bored.
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    C'mon William, cut to the chase, which watch were you wearing and did it survive?

    Nah, sorry to hear about your accident and the insurance problems -- as everyone here I wish you a speedy recovery, buddy.
    I'm sorted and so not buying any more watches.
