Pat wanted me to tell everyone thanks for the well wishes. We are having a time getting an appointment with a doctor. He has to have a work release ( of course he cant work yet) So far the earliest he can get in to see one is March 17th. We cannot afford for him to be off work that long. I think that is how they get out of paying any claims. Another thing is we may have todrive over 50 miles one way to even see an doctor. This is crazy. IF it is just a muscle strain he will be healed by then and no trouble for the worse if he goes back to work before then. If it is something else, like a slipped disc then he will have trouble and will void his claim by then. Go to work and risk more injury, maybe far more serious or stay at home and not pay bills....... I am worried. I cannot say anything to him about it. He really is hurting and he will try to work if he knows that I am worried. I am scared. I am not ashamed to admit it. I keep thinking, should I contact a lawyer now? I feel like they are trying to screw him.
