The Post-Interview Lunch

Suit image from MS ClipArtI decided it was time to look for a new job. So, I sent my resume to a friend who forwarded it on to the right people at her company. They liked what they saw and asked for an interview. The interview went very well and I was informed that they would be extending an offer.

After the interview, the interviewer asked if I'd like to join him and other members of the team for lunch. The team members and the interviewer were dressed in business casual attire while I was in a black suit. The potential new company and my current employer are both located in the same city and I knew it was possible that I would see some of my co-workers out at lunch. But since the interview went so well, I figured it was a risk I was willing to take.

Elbow09 Update 7: The Final Update (hopefully)

Elbow 09We went to see the doctor this morning. At 7 weeks after surgery, the doctor was VERY impressed with Holly's progress. She can extend her arm to about 4 degrees and flex her arm to about 130 (137 in therapy yesterday). In fact, Dr. E. said that while he can't directly compare her injury with identical patients, she is far ahead in recovery than most elbow patients (with injuries fairly similar to hers). He said that she should be cautious though and not let her progress blind her to possible problems.

At this point, she still can't bear weight but she can reasonably do anything else. She's been driving for about a week now and has been going to work too. She's still a couple weeks away from riding and she's going to start out slow. And she promises to be careful!

We go back to see the doctor in six weeks and if things continue the way they have, he'll discharge her.

Now to remind her how to do laundry! :)
