Yesterday I finally had me re-introductory appointment with the VA. Now I'll be able to get some of the necessary processes underway.
Here's what I found out: I'm not cleared to return to my day job for another few months, because there are some tests I need to have done, scans and such.
My doctor and his staff seem really good, and I like them. The doc actually listens, and doesn't get frustrated when I remember stuff out of order. At least not as much as I do.
