SIL apparently has had some numbness in her one leg and back problems for awhile. News to me. I mean, we live about 5 minutes away but see her maybe once a year. It will likely be more now that BIL is back in town.
neways--She had an MRI and a meeting with a neurosurgeon. Apparently they are operating next Friday for a herniated disk. She cannot lift more than 30 lbs and is on work restriction for 6 weeks. Great, right? NO. She does not qualify for short term disability because she is overweight. She has known this for two years. OY.
And before BM can say it, this girl is not healthy. She has gained at least 80 lbs in probably a short 4 years. Not good. I feel bad for her, but honestly none of the healthcare professionals even mentioned losing a little weight.
