Victory!!! Part 2

Well the impossible has happened. Thanks to the hard work and determination of many Louisville Metro Government has decided to give me the time I need to return to work. I got the call from HR yesterday that they will give me until August 31st to start with, and more time if it is needed. I can't believe that they decided to give me the chance after all this time and fighting. I'm not sure really how to feel; I'm cautiously optimistic that I can make it back to the streets and prove that I am able to do this.

So, I just want to say thank you to everyone who emailed, facebooked, and tweeted Mayor Fischer or who just supported me throughout this long, arduous process. I'm going to keep working hard to get through physical therapy, start the work hardening process and back to the streets.


  1. Congratulations Joe. Nothing like having the chance to return "Home."

  2. Proud of you, Joe!! You deserve this. Atta boy.

  3. Congratulations Joe! Been following your inspirational journey and as a fellow medic (who went on to PA school) I applaud your effort and determination! If it doesn't work out you should consider going to PA school! Our profession could use someone with your knowledge, experience, determination, and compassion! Good luck and I will still follow your journey and accomplishments

  4. It's great to see something turn out the way it should.
    Glad to hear it!

  5. Congrats! They finally realized they shouldn't take a great medic off the streets
