Had my pins taken out today. It was considered minor surgery, it didn't feel minor to me. Pretty much got a script for some more "vitamin P" and some antibiotics. And guess what, I am back to work.
I couldn't drive my truck today, had to borrow an automatic one(from that special friend I talked about earlier). My boss is happy I am back to work, it relieves some personnel pressure for him. It makes me happy to help out my Corporal more than helping my boss.
Looks like I will be doing lots of Occupational Therapy for the next several months to get back in tip top form.
