Hey there everyone!  :) I am doin' as good as I can...I hit an oak tree head-on in my F-150.  :( There was excess pea gravel on the bend and it was like being on ball bearings. I had no time to react, the truck slid...hit dead-on with the tree @ 40 mph!!  >:( My injuries are very serious.  :( I have a badly broken right hip, fractured pelvis, broken RT wrist, and my left hand punched through the windshield to boot!  >:( >:( :'( Check this out...I WAS WEARING A SEATBELT AND HAD AN AIRBAG!!! (some real extra protection there, eh?) Well, I hopefully will be back to full duty by the start of 2009. If ya would like to call me, my ICU phone # (412) 802- 3646.  :) I will be back to play in the game soon!  ;) I have faith in God. (I should have died).  :'( Whoa!  :D  Peace to all of yinz out there doin' the do! ;) ;D   - Snake.  8)

Hey everyone! I'm outta the ICU. I'm now at a rest facility in Worthington, Pa. Here's my address (for the next 3 mos.) - Michael T. Shaffer Room #58...c/o Sugar Creek Rest...120 Lakeside Drive...Worthington, PA 16262. My private ph.# has NOT been installed yet. The facility's ph.# is (724) 445-3000. They will get a temp. phone to my room to talk...INCOMING CALLS ONLY!  :( Well Y'know, I worked SSES Berwick for many outages...no one has contacted me from there at all yet! :( Major bummer...I thought of them as extended family. OUCH!  :'( Thanks for all the words of encouragement!

Snake, glad to hear of your move to new facility, it means major improvement so all this karma going your way must be working. Although I don't know you, I have followed your post on nukeworker for a number of years and well, a fellow nukeworker is ALWAYS considered family.

Hang in there and keep the posts coming, karma your way.

Glad to hear you 're OK Mike. I went through similiar in Winter of 92 at Kewaunee. Broken hip , broken tailbone and separated pubic bone. Take it slow it'll be a while before you are steady on your feet again. It took me 11 months and alot of physical therapy before I could go back out on the road again. Oh yeah and various prescriptions helped me on the road to recovery. Take care and have some patience during physical therapy.  Before you know it you'll be back to your normal routine.

Karma!  ;D To Brett, I actually kinda wish I WAS on my 2 wheeler...I COULD HAVE LAID-ER DOWN BEFORE HITTIN' DA TREE!!  ;) >:( Only He knows what the outcome may have been, right? Anyhoo, I even had some time to think up a song lyric about the wreck...to the tune of "Hot Rod Lincoln"..."My truck slid off the corner, it's just my luck, slammed a big oak tree, ahhh...whut-tha-f#@$." I suppose a shot on "Idol" is next, eh?  ::) Keep on doin' the do everyone!  ;) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too!  - Snake.  8)

Hope the recovery is going well & you can join us all again at the outages. It is tuff getting back. I am still doing therapy on my shoulder from the motorcycle crash. Looks like I'll be back next month. The forearm injury seems to be my only long term problem, other than a fear of seeing minivans from the side!

Hello everybody! ;) Well, here's the latest on my recovery...my lower back, right hip, and right knee are hampering my rehab efforts. :( I saw a specialist last week, [after wasting 6+ months with the "other guy"] and he said that I have "strong indications" of a fractured patella (kneecap), damage to my L-4/L-5, and bone-to-bone contact I/S my pelvic-leg socket!!! :o >:( Whoa, that can't be good...YA THINK?? ::) I'll be gettin' some MRI's and CT scans this week to verify what was found last week. The "potential" outcome is this...lower back/knee surgery, and a hip replacement!! >:( :( :'( I sure hope not! Well, that's about it...be good to yourselves out there.   - Snake. 8)

Good luck! Keep us posted on your progress. I had a friend here in Ga that just did the hip replacement and was out dancing Saturday nite, 3 weeks after the surgery! Keep reaching for the next rung of the ladder, ask "what do I do next to get going again!"
I hope that things improve soon for you. I was very lucky, hope I can send some luck your way....

Greetings and salutations! ;D How's everybody doin' out there? Well, anyhoo...here's the latest. I have an "open/non-union" fracture at the very top of my RT pelvic socket that was previously "undetected" on follow-up X-rays! [an MRI/CT scan found it] >:( My RT patella (kneecap) has some damage that was "misinterpreted" as a congenital two-piece kneecap! [a birth defect] >:( The lower back problems are basically pinched nerves in L-4/L-5, and "residuals" from my L-1 compression fracture in 1999. What does all this mean? ::) IF I "fail" at rehabilitation (PT/OT) again, I'll be gettin' my hip replaced...no if's, and's, or but's about it!! :( I have a few non-surgical options as far as my knee is concerned. There is some good news...I'll be doin' my PT/OT at the Southside Sports Medicine Complex in 'da 'burgh! (I start on 8/7...so cross yer fingers and wish me luck!) ;D ;) This is the place where the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins go to get better! ;) Hey, hey, that works for me!! ;D (maybe I'll try to "schmooz" some tickets, etc.) That's all fer now.

Well, I failed my third attempt at PT in late November. :( I saw my orthopaedic surgeon with the dread of getting a hip replacement...(that's what he said if I failed once more at PT/OT...yada, yada) >:( Well, he "180-ed" his previous statement about what my options would be if I failed again. :o (no surprise there!) I told them...ahhh...to get 'bent"...yeah...let's stick to that. ::) I went to UPMC's competition, and they are absolutely wonderful! :) The winter deep-freeze was brutal on me joints, etc. Now, I'm almost ready to be accepted into another PT/OT program to help condition my body for the type of work, and lifestyle I like to live! ;D COOL...ABOUT #&%@ TIME, EH?! >:( Keep it swingin' out there...hope to join all yinz soon.  - Michael T.

Greetings and salutations! ;D A little update for yinz all...if ya care to know. I was hoping to get in 'da game this fall. Well, no such luck. My doctor wants me to stay in PT/OT until late September...oh friggin' well. I need the "official" documents of medical release from care first, right? I am having a hard time getting interviews with "potential" employers...in ANY field. Why? It really doesn't look good (on a resume) when there's a nearly 2 year gap since you were last employed...then add the current state of the economy...yada, yada , yada. I will keep on keepin' on. Have a good fall season everyone, be safe, and with any luck...I'll be back for spring 2011.   - Michael T. Shaffer 8)

Hello to everyone out there in 'da nukie biz, ;) what's the good word lately? I just wanted to share some great news with all of "yinz" who care. My physical and occupational therapy sessions are FINALLY complete!! ;D I have succeeded with flying colors. :) My doctor has given me the "green light" to return to the working world...100%...without ANY restrictions at all. Awesome!! ;D It has been a very long, hard road back...it's been over two years since the accident. Now comes the reward. (I hope) I'm sure it's gonna be a real "pain in the arse" filling out all the paperwork to get back in the game again, but it is what it is, right? ;) I am so damn eager to get my life back on track...I hope to see all of "yinz" at a plant or two this spring! Wish me luck. - Mike "Snake" Shaffer    P.S. - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all! ;D

Great news! I know how hard it can be getting going again. I was very fortunate to be let back in my old position. I thought 6 months was a long time!
