My assistant just told me that she will be out an additional month and a week! She's had the surgery to her shoulder on July 26th and has been doing physical therapy since 3x/week! She had some arthritis removed and a repair to her shoulder cuff thing. We've had two other people in the office who have had the same surgery and one was out for less than a week and the other for almost two weeks. WTH is her problem? Could this be REAL? That's a total time of 12 weeks recovery? Her history is that she has an extremely low tolerance for pain and every little thing bugs her. She's getting diability from the one we carry and a supplemental plan she carries through the company so I know she is getting within a few dollars of her normal salary. When we talk on the phone - to check in - she's always chipper and sounds great (I would be too if I had almost 3 months off, even with surgery, in the summertime!). I'm so annoyed but of course, I can't say anything. Argh!!!!!!
