……Hallelujah. UPDATE UPDATE  UPDATE  I am not going to say too much because I don’t want to jinx anything. Apparently the new asshole that Dr. Marshall (WC DR) chewed for Kathy Winchester (evil WC adjuster) must work better than her brain. Patrick just got a call from Dr. Marshall’s nurse. The good Dr talked to(screamed and yelled for about a half of an hour the nurse told Patrick) both Kathy AND her supervisor. Patrick now has a VERBAL COMMITMENT TO GO AHEAD WITH THE SURGERY. We will not know more until Monday to see when the Dr. on Oahu can fit him in. I could tell that Patrick was close to tears as he related this news to me, the relief in his voice was palpable. Keep your fingers crossed. I will update again on Monday as soon as we hear.
