Thanks TheoMerry Christmas, and it sounds like you are headed for a happy new year. Good luck.
Thanks MarcoHope the toe heals and everything works out in your favor. Sounds like you'll be in the air more than on the ground... that's a lot of ground to cover.
Thanks Steve, yes things are looking up but I wish this toe would heal faster !Merry Christmas Dan. A little late chiming in but it sounds like a bumpy road for a while but the road looks smoother. Hope the new job works out and you get back on your feet quickly. This past year has been a challenge for so many and the vaccines are a promise of a improving future sooner we all hope. My MIL was diabetic and I have had many interactions with diabetic patients through the rescue squad so I know the alarm you have. Following the Doc's instructions and medication is important, priority one, for a good outcome but being more sensitive to the situation is good as it will keep you focused on what you need to do. Good luck with the toe and the job. Things are looking up.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery with the toe and with the new job ! Hopefully 2021 will be a turn around for all of us.Merry Christmas folks,
I haven't had the time to participate much lately for several reasons. First my pay was reduced to 3 days per week which made things impossible to manage the budget, so I advertised on the local Facebook for installation and handyman jobs. Well that was a success ! I had to refuse work because the demand was so high. Many people know me as a woodworking teacher so they were all interested. I worked 2 to 3 days a week for a couple of months while still working 3 days a week at my job and giving 2 woodworking courses every Saturday.
Well I got a break !!!! I applied for a job as a sales rep and within 15 minutes of sending my resume, the phone rang !!! WOW that was fast especially considering I am near Montreal and the firm is in Burnaby B.C. Well a couple of inter web interviews later we finalized a deal. So I resigned from my current job to give notice and I start the new position as technical sales rep for Williams and Wilson saw blade sharpening equipment. After Covid I will rarely be home ! My territory is huge !!! from Manitoba to Newfoundland in Canada, and in the U.S.A. from North Dakota to Pennsylvania then east to Maine. So I just finished the latest woodworking course last Saturday and decided that from now on I will only do one course at a time on Saturday mornings. The second was from 1PM until 4PM and that left no time to do anything except Sundays. In August I was visiting a sawmill in Northern Ontario and made the mistake of wearing new safety boots, well 3 blisters later when I removed my boots after work, I was shocked to see the 3 blisters bleeding. I am Diabetic so healing has been a long slow process. Last week as I was undressing and again shocked when I removed my sock, my toe was almost black. Next day I saw my Dr. and he was less worried than me, Antibiotics and cream should fix the Diabetic ulcer he said. It's been a week and it has regained it colour but the wound is still open. I need this to heal for my new job starting on the 4th of January. So if I don't lose my toe the new year should be good new job better pay and the vaccines are starting to be given so just a matter of time before it's my turn. I am optimistic, how could it be worse ?
Blessings to all on this Christmas day.
Thanks Tom,Really nice to hear from you again. I think some things will change, but I believe people are hungry for getting together with others. My wife and I just got the first vaccine shot, which made her a little sick, but didn't affect me at all, not even a sore arm. At any rate, it's nice to hear from you again and that your toe has gotten better. My wife has to buy special shoes. Keep checking in now and again.
Thanks Ross,Great to hear that things are improving.
