The jimmyt update thread

well guys his condition is the same, still no movin his back he can feel and move all his extremities, but is sick and tired of layin there!

now on top of all that has happened our insurance is startin to fuck with us!!!

they are sayin that since the doctors cant operate that technically he is just getting bed rest and they say that he can do that at home! yeah right how are we supposed to move him around without all the right equipment he cant even set up yet! they wont pay for an ambulance to take him home or any home healthcare or even to put a hospital bed in his house.

so thats where were at now is just fighting the insurance!

thanks everyone for your continued support and prayers !!!

Fraking insurance asshats. Did you ask em how he is supposed to get home? Just walk out? Maybe they can send someone to carry him out? WTH?

Thanks for the update. Keep us informed.

I could show you, but then I would have to kill you.

The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done!

Was this from a Rhino injury?

Does he have any abnormal leg pain? I sure hope not. That would indicate a bulging or slipped disc. I've already had surgery once for this and been in PT for the last 2 months. Back injuries are the absolute worst!

Tell him to keep his chin up and try not to let it get him down.

Have you guys tried ice, or heat on the back? You'd be surprised how much it can help!

Tell the insurance company that you would be glad to take him home, right after you consult your lawyer about a lawsuit for damage and pain and suffering. Could equal big bucks. Maybe then they would reconsider the seriousness of a back injury.

I could show you, but then I would have to kill you.
