      but not quite as bad, thank the Lord.
      i was delivering w/ a different work truck than i was
      accustomed to
      using in high point today & stepped back expecting to
      find the step
      bumper about 1/2 way down, but it wasn't there.
      so i continued to pivot backwards & landed on my
      back... on a curb.
      i decided after about 45 minutes that i needed to go &
      be checked out
      even though i thought there would be nothing broken,
      just hurt back
      muscles. after x-rays & a CT scan they said i had a
      compression
      fracture in the t8 vertebrae.
      no brace needed, just time to allow healing (5-6
      weeks).
      just thought i'd let yall know.
      and BTW, someone pointed out that this is fri 13th,
      but NO, i'm still
      not superstitious. just need to be more careful<g>.
      thanks in advance for your prayers. ...tim

        Ouch, Tim! I'm so sorry to hear about your injury.

        BTW, I had an hour-long interview with a Workman's Comp specialist this
        past week at work. He said that the most common construction site
        injuries are from falls. At the same time, one of our crews went to a
        big job at a Navy base in Pensacola. The general contractor required
        that they all attend a 45-minute safety presentation before they
        started work. The main subject--avoiding falls.

        Can you get comfortable at all in your hammock?

        Get well Tim. Let us know if time in a hammock is as good as the ground. I d guess that the ground will feel pretty good for a short spell. Rick

            i wasn't very comfortable on the couch w/ a foam wedge & lots of pillows last night.
            i got up once & made my way into the bed room w/ the BA air mat w/ the intention of trying the hammock.
            i'm pretty sure that i will be more comfortable in the hammock, but the only thing that kept me from going ahead & getting in it last night was that i was afraid i would have an even harder time reaching for anything like water, etc. also getting up may be a little more of a challenge yet than the couch. those are the most painful things... reaching, sitting up, & standing.
            but today i added a mild mucle relaxer w/ the pain med. that seems to have improved things a little, so i'm going to give the hammock a try today.

            i will need to learn how things are supposed to work w/ the Workman's Comp. i feel sure they will take care of the medical bills & i'm hoping they will pay some toward the time out of work. i'm just not familiar w/ that. my last injury wasn't at work.

            i have no intention of taking advantage in any sort of an unfair way, but i do want to be sure that my employers & workman's comp do their part.

            i know a lady who's a lawyer. maybe she would be willing to give me advice.
            i have no insurance.
            any suggestions that you (or others) have concerning those things would be greatly appreciated. thanks. ...tim

                  Speaking as someone who deals with these issues for an employer...

                  Be sure you keep whoever handles HR issues completely informed. They
                  are responsible for reporting injuries to the state. Anything you
                  don't tell them, they can't know, and therefore can't help you with.
                  For example, our W/C carrier requires that injured employees take a
                  drug test after any sort of incident, even something like exposure to
                  an allergen. Check and see what the rules at your company are. If
                  you work with them (assuming they are not trying to cheat you and the
                  system) it will go much more smoothly.

                  Make sure you turn in all relevent paperwork and medical bills.

                  Also, they may offer you some sort of light-duty work during your
                  recovery. If your doctor clears it and they offer that option, it
                  will be much better for both parties than if you claim it through the
                  insurance carrier, which often involves long delays.

                        i just talked to one of the owners of the small company i work for. he said they don't have workers comp. he said if they had three employees they would be required to have it, but because they only have two (full time) they aren't required to.
                        he also was hoping i could come in monday & drive a truck (strait drive) & he had someone who could deliver the produce. i told him there's no way. i'm not even supposed to be driving period, much less a strait drive. and it's a painful experience to get up from the couch to go to the bathroom.
                        i'll be trying to get in touch w/ the lady i know who's a lawyer to see what she has to say about it. ...tim

                        Speaking as someone who deals with these issues for an employer...

                        Be sure you keep whoever handles HR issues completely informed. They
                        are responsible for reporting injuries to the state. Anything you
                        don't tell them, they can't know, and therefore can't help you with.
                        For example, our W/C carrier requires that injured employees take a
                        drug test after any sort of incident, even something like exposure to
                        an allergen. Check and see what the rules at your company are. If
                        you work with them (assuming they are not trying to cheat you and the
                        system) it will go much more smoothly.

                        Make sure you turn in all relevent paperwork and medical bills.

                        Also, they may offer you some sort of light-duty work during your
                        recovery. If your doctor clears it and they offer that option, it
                        will be much better for both parties than if you claim it through the
                        insurance carrier, which often involves long delays.

                            my 1st night i slept on the couch w/ a big foam wedge & lots of pillows.
                            was fairly comfortable but slept off & on through the night.
                            last night (2nd night after the injury) i slept in the hammock w/ the BA air matt.
                            i slept like a baby all night long<g>. just as suspected, getting up was a little bit more painful though<g>.
