Can't really say; sorry. Although I STILL don't have a definite start date; there's been some complications and I'm really starting to get worried about it all. I haven't been looking for other jobs because I thought I had this job in the bag, so to not hear anything is rather concerning for me. I'm still undergoing the background checks as far as I know, so I don't think they've halted the hiring process, but it's rather nerve-wracking not to know for certain when I'll be starting. Or if.

So actually.... I didn't start on Monday. Although not because they don't want to hire me; they do. More because... I fell down the stairs and fractured three bones in my ankle, I'm on crutches and in a boot that I probably won't be out of for at least a couple of months (although I should be able to get off the crutches gradually), and I was pretty hopped up on pain pills that Monday. I ended up calling my hiring manager while I was in the hospital and explaining the situation to him; he understood fortunately, and I now have a start date of January 7th instead. Cross your fingers that I'm off the crutches by then please; it would really suck to still have to use them nearly a month after the actual injury.

In case you want to know (this is actually somewhat amusing in retrospect, although it sure wasn't at the time); this is what happened. I was bringing some clothes down stairs to my basement to toss them in the dryer for dry cleaning purposes and didn't want my cat, Ceri, to sneak down there at the same time because she ALWAYS hides under the stairs down there and I have to coax her out and she's dirty and messy from the dust under there, so I was trying to be quick and shut the door behind me fast. I was wearing fuzzy slippers, and due to the whole wanting to shut the door fast thing, I wasn't paying attention to where my feet were. Consequently, my foot slipped, and I tumbled down thirteen stairs to land at the bottom. I thankfully did not lose consciousness, but was understandably in a LOT of pain (plus seeing my foot twisted at a slightly odd angle was not conducive to my peace of mind), so I set myself to crawling back up all thirteen steps to the top in order to crawl to my couch and find my cell phone. I called 911, they took me to the hospital, and several x-rays and a CT scan later pronounced me with a fractured left ankle as well as a lot of bumps and bruises (seriously; you should see my left arm. It looks horrible right now, although it's not painful really at all). I've basically spent the last week staying entirely off of my foot with it wrapped in a splint until I could see the orthopedic surgeon, which was today. He thankfully does not believe that the fractures are that bad; apparently you can't even see them on an X-ray, only on a CT scan, and he says that's a good thing, but I'll still be a couple of months healing up, and I'll probably have to have SOME physical therapy; even if I didn't break anything too severely, I also wrenched a lot of tendons and ligaments, and they'll probably need some work to get back to a semblance of their former selves.

Bottom line, I'm in some mild pain and am getting used to the boot that I'll be wearing for a good long while, but I'm alive and kicking. Metaphorically anyway. :)

Oh wow. I am so sorry to hear you took that fall hon >.< that is never fun at all. Do your best to stay off your feet while you're waiting for that start day. I am very glad that your new boss is going to be willing to let you start on the 7th instead of right away. Get better soon, Bri.
