I have survived 2 weeks of hell over the dreaded Year End as well as the Year End PAYE/UIF recons and submissions to SARS by yesterday. The caps for Year End are deliberate – Year End looms large in my line of work! I feel like I have been mangled in a mixer!
Anyway enough on that, all now sorted and we’re back on track.
My friend T is out of hospital, scooting around in a wheelchair a day after discharge and walking with crutches while his wife hovers anxiously behind him with the wheelchair at the ready.
He stops every few meters and sits in the wheelchair to catch his breath; then he’s back up again and walking some more …
Bear in mind this is a diabetic of 72 who almost definitely did not take proper care of himself. He is very much a ‘no nonsense’ ‘no hocus pocus’ type!
He’s also already back at work in his wheelchair for an hour or so per day; much to my utter relief. He is admin assistant to the owner of one of the most popular butcheries in KZN! He is my ‘man on the ground’ who simplifies my life greatly.
I just trust that he will not overdue things but it is a fact that his ‘can do’ attitude is pulling him through this traumatic episode. I expect to see him striding around on a prosthetic foot in about three months time.
Hats off to you Tony!
