It didn't have anything to do with Watts Bar.  He had personal issues.

I heard about this. I need to get my shoulder straightened out so I can get back to work. I'm missing all the good stuff!
  Take care of yourself Bru!  Get that cuff fixed up.  I don't know if you were here back then but he had to leave our site for personal reasons.  I believe most everyone liked him, it was unfortunate...

Had my rotator cuff repaired last summer - best advice I can give you - don't scrimp on the physical therapy - I got 95+% of the pre-injury range of motion back, strength coming along.

Good luck, it's not fun.

Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

Thank you guys! My surgery is Friday afternoon. They're going to reattach two tendons, clean some bone fragments out, and repair a tear in the cuff.
The doctor said I'll be away from work a minimum of 6 weeks. When he said that I was pleased because I thought I'd be able to be returned to duty by then. He laughed and said you don't understand, you'll be AT HOME and AT THERAPY for those 6 weeks there's no work allowed at all.

Whether I get full range of motion back or not, I simply want the pain to go away. He's certain he can make my shoulder look like a shoulder again.

I'm sure all here will be have you in their prayers!  My oldest son went through it and has not had a problem since (or at least not that he is talking about).

Do all that they tell you (even though it hurts a little and you are afraid of reinjury) and as much as the therapist will let you.  Return to service ASAP!

For those who would like to know how long it takes for TVA to call about an application, for me it was 4 months.  I got a call yesterday for a job that I had to look up to remember how long ago it was posted.  Well fingers crossed on that interview working out.

Thanks good catch.

In recent months, the Watts Barr Unit 2 project has been plagued with controversy.

In January, TVA fired project manager Masoud Bajestani was fired after allegedly sending more than $600,000 to Iran.

In March, an electrical inspector was indicted for falsifying inspection reports. A second contractor was indicted in September for the same reason.

In July, a scathing report released by the Nuclear Regulation Commission slammed both Watts Bar 1 and 2 for numerous safety violations.

And yet, somehow, in spite of this, there are 3 ILT classes going as well as interviews for the next SGPO class this week.

That's just operations....  I can't speak for the other craft departments.

Maybe house jobs are the way to go...

To those enroute out it was explained that the budget had shrunk. While Unit 1 keeps on makng megawatts, the Unit 2 side had not lived up to expectatons on both progress and budget. Goals and system turnovers kept moving--away from schedule.  Constructon work always entails layoffs as progress/management change is made, hence 600 craft workers going home. The 200 non-manual folks is another thing.  To put it in perspective: Your Quick Lube job takes days. And they're not done yet.

Well, as an Atlantic Die Hard Tech, I was very surprised to find out the "Double Secret Probation" list had been dusted off - with an offer to do the upcoming WBN Outage!

So, I made some phones calls to see if I should backout of my Salem Outage and............

All is not good in the Tennessee Valley, I was told the "Watts Bar Black Plague Outage" starts in 3 weeks, and your supposed to avoid the plague; right???? :D

The Bar is 31 RP Techs short (out of 55) and they are currently almost out of control, and certain to not staff the outage, up against the Sequoyah SGRP.

You were warned! -K
