Usually this efficiency would be great but Bryan doesn't get short term disability with his work until he has been there a year, which is the end of April. He doesn't know how long he would need to rehab after this surgery, it could be minor or it could be really involved we don't know until they get in there and see.
The surgery scheduler called me back. She stated that the doc was insisent on getting Bryan in early and that is why it was so soon. I explained that he would need to use his short term disability and work and that didn't start till April. I asked if the surgeon could do it at the end of April. She stated that no he only does surgery on the 1st Friday of every month. I guess we have no choice but to push it back to May. I told her I would check with my husband to see if he could keep his current appointment. She said that she would have to mark in the chart that the patient requested the change because if something got really bad with his knee it wouldn't come back on her. I told her that it was fine and that I would get back to her about the 1st of May.She asked when I would get back to her and I told her today. I left a message that it would be May and that I would appreciate if she called back with the details of times and locations. I didn't hear back.
I then started looking through some of Bryan's documents as I needed to scan in his DD214 for his AW2 case manager. I found a travel voucher that he was supposed to fill out for travel when he retired from DC to here. This is a big chunk of money and it has to be done within the 1 year mark of the retirement date which is a month away. God was looking out for me on this one as we could use a little bit of extra money.
