Got a message from Urologist's office yesterday... spoke today. The Dr. wanted to move my 4/30 surgery to 5/7. I explained I am trying to get rehired by J.B. Hunt and it has to happen within 6 months of my graduation from CDL school (12/19 so 6/19).

Dr. called and said he can do 4/24! That is even better (for me) as I will have a "no lifting over 10 lbs. for 6 weeks" restriction. Dunno if that will be an issue or not but with the need to get my diabetes form, Fed Med., line up a trainer, etc., I have a 2-week window after the 6-week thing. Probably best to get a Fed. Med. with no restriction - might have needed it anyway. Dunno!

I feel better (sort of) getting it done sooner and having more time to get everything lined up. May really be silly to get a new Fed. Med. ASAP (probably this Saturday or Monday) but I will anyway. Maybe I can drive a limo in between! (I see my Endocrinologist Friday so I can probably get one after that).

Starting my Fed. Med. Card Collection!

My Bro and Sis are helping me day-of and post-surgery (thank G-d for them) so they need to adjust their schedules but will. Lucky to have you all in my life!

Even my new recruiter says they are praying for me!

Marc, it sounds like you are effectively dealing with your non-linear waterfowl issues (aka Getting Your Ducks in a Row). I hope all goes well for you. Wow you have had a lot to deal with but you still stay upbeat, great quality driver!

Thanks Bruce!

I assume you meant that as "great quality - driver"!

Clearly me being a "great, quality driver" is still TBD!
