Update on Rob’s hands
You might remember about a month ago I mentioned that Rob had gone in to have his hands diagnosed and that the doctor wanted to get him in for surgery right away, as in that week. Â The nerves were dying. He’s been jumping through paperwork since then. Â We just found out that his worker’s comp claim has been denied because they’ve said the carpal tunnel is a pre-existing condition.
The problem with this is that it’s not debilitating if he’s not working harvest. Â I mean, the problems he’s having are so clearly linked to his job that it’s not even funny. Â Right now, he’s having trouble tying his shoes. Â This wasn’t an issue before harvest.
We’re been told that he can appeal to a judge, which we’ll try, meanwhile he’sÂ also jumping through the paperwork hoops for our regular insurance. Â I’m frustrated, angry and worried about him.
