    Default Work down the drain

    Work just really started to crank for me, and then bam! I blew out my knee, and my main helper is out of town for another week. My calls are now going down the drain, turned two away today. I'm going to find out whats going on at the doc's tomorrow. Sucks when your the only one bringing home the $$. Just venting knowing your all hard workers, family men, and can relate. Just felt like cryin a little. lolů

    Sorry to hear that I blew out my ACL in my knee just before I opened went on my first call still in a brace. Don't know how I did it or how the business survived.

    Default Thanks boys

    Went to the orthopedic found out today it might be a acl or meniscus tear, won't know for sure intil the ins approves the mri. As far as me knowing it blew out, I moved, felt a pop in my knee, and now can't take the pain when I put weight on it. Prior to this happening has been stiff for a few months now thought it was just catching up with me due to plumbing and drain work etc. Thanks again boys for the support

    Pray its your meniscus that's nothing compared to ACL surgery and recovery. Had meniscus work on my right knee it was nothing a few weeks and back in action.

    You might look into a temp helper for the time being. Even if you don't make money you will keep the customer happy and not have to turn them away. Good luck!
