Wishing you a complete recovery Dennis.

I am curious if you were provided with a circulating cold water wrap device to reduce swelling after surgery. I've had two rotator cuff surgeries and my surgeon highly recommended the rental but insurance would not pay but I paid for them anyways and it seemed to speed up my recovery a great deal. The biggest delay with my first surgery was getting the referral for physical therapy. Since I already knew what to do with the second one, the surgeon said I was good to go at my first week follow-up. I realize your situation is much worse but I'm just curious if a similar device is used for a procedure such as yours. (It's a neoprene wrap with tubbing connected to a small ice chest filled with ice and water and a circulating pump.)

"Texting Terms and Abbreviations For Dummies" is my guess.

Built from Broken ~ A Science Based Book.

This has been huge, in helping my repair/recovery of my rotator cuff injury. It's even gotten Brett's seal of approval. Highly recommended.

I already sent Ms. Laura (IDMtnGal for those not in the know) a HUGE .pdf with said information, but I'll leave it here for you also, Pack!!

Text Abbreviations

FWIW, I'd get the copy from Laura that I'd sent her, PackRat. It's the 'handheld' version~!! (For What It's Worth, haha!)

Peace, y'all ~

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Let me know when you're headed to the transfer station and I'll meet you there

Hay, Chief Brody . . . although it appears you two did not get to meet; hope all is well and that YOU, yourself are not having some sort of a setback either, good sir. You've been missed up in here.

Not to bother; just wondering!

I have not had a setback rather I have moved on to a new adventure in the Prime tanker division.

I know that I had posted at one time that if I got nothing but tarping metal day loads I would quit. Well after a string of tarping metal loads I decided I would move from flatbed to tanker.

I had just got done cleaning my truck out and it was a pain. I couldn't imagine doing it with one bad arm, which is why I offered my help.

Had Dennis taken me up on my offer I would have insisted that he call me Dr Kimball.

Congrats too you Chief. I guess we kinda swapped places I went from tanks to flatbed and you in reverse.

Ya’ll do the food grade stuff. I know very little about that, I always did chemicals.

And I’m not really a flatbedder. I pull only one product and it does NOT get tarped.

Stay safe

We have food grade and also an inedible division which in my research I've realized that you need a PhD in food science to understand what's food grade, non food grade, and inedible.

I'm on the inedible side which is digest and eggs.

The load I just delivered Saturday night I actually picked up at the tank wash in East St Louis where I first met you.

My interesting adventures in truck driving continues. In my first week I had a load of eggs that had been rejected by the receiver and needed to be delivered to a farm 25 miles away.

The eggs had been sitting in the tank for over 30 days. I didn't have to pump it off but the farmers that did pump it off had to hold their breath anytime their head passed over the dome lid.
