Anyway, I called in for work today and told my boss that I would be working from home. They've sent my business laptop by courier, and I'm getting a good day's work done so far without having to strain my hip and thigh any more than they already are. I told him that I may well work from home the entire week, and he wasn't pleased, but at least I can do the work from home, and they can send me anything really important here at the house.
I'm hoping that taking things easy in terms of not walking too much and not "working" the hip and leg will make me functional enough for next week, but we'll see how it goes. Anyway, back to the slave camp. :)
