Down but not Out
Permalink  
 


Hey everyone.  Just when I thought things were going good, did a couple of training roofs, did a few paying jobs, things were looking good.  And then, I blew out the tendon in my ankle.  Great.  Had one surgery, didn't work. I just had a second surgery a few weeks ago. Now, I can't even walk until October.  I've had to train my son, who was my ground person, how to do the roof. That was a little hard, since I couldn't even walk. But, it worked o.k.  He went and did a couple of small jobs. I have a few houses that are willing to wait until I am up and around to have theirs done.
Seems to be that the very few companies around here that clean roofs are doing it in a way that takes 2-3 months for the roofs to come clean. And they won't do roofs they can't walk on.  That's helping me alot.. So,  for the time being, I am all over the internet learning whatever I can.

Sorry to hear about the injury. Let it heal before you push it again.

I had a set back in May when I fell off a roof and busted up seven ribs. I'm all heeled and back at it again. You'll be as good as new before you know it. Not to mention this is a great opportunity to give your boy some practice spraying roofs.

Hang in there.

You evidently did a good job raising your boy, he was able to jump in and rescue his old Dad. Get well soon and tell your boy "good job".

Get well soon! Make sure you consider therapeutic (medical) massage as a supplement to your PT and rehab. You'll be back on the gutter line in no time! Good luck :)

That massage stuff is great. I had that the first time this tendon blew out last June. They tried to fix it with just the massage. Didn't work, but it felt great.
