small update: my husband had to sign a HIPAA form for the lawyer last week [monday] and also had to send him some other stuff along with impressive photos. the lawyer seems to feel that he will be just fine doing the FPEB over the phone.

we have two weeks before this happens, but the lawyer said that is plenty of time. i think my husband's anxiety is starting to get the best of him, and mine as well. we had to call the nuerologist today to make sure that he is able to speak with the lawyer and we seem to have a little bit of a snag there because we were told by the receptionist that the nuero won't just speak to anyone. sigh. so, right now, we are trying to get that all squared away to make sure that everyone is on the right page so that the lawyer is able to speak to him.

hoping to bring this thread some good news in the upcoming days. we sure could use some. :)

update:

FPEB is on tuesday and the lawyer called today where he spoke to my husband and prepped him for the FPEB. there's one document he requested, so my husband is getting that for him on monday during his appointment with his neurologist. the lawyer was very nice and once again informative. trying to take the time this weekend to not focus on this whole process in all honesty. thanks for all those who have taken the time to listen. will update after the FPEB is over tuesday morning.

update:

husband had his FPEB 9 MAY 2018 and we've still not heard any word back as to what his finding was - not even a FIT/UNFIT finding; which we have been told is sort of normal. hoping to hear something back by this week or the following. it's been a welcomed break from all the legal "stuff" and paperwork, emails, phone calls, worrying, etc.

his FPEB went fairly well - one of the people on the board "grilled him" but they were extremely polite about it. they asked tough questions regarding how he has excelled so well, yet apparently suffers as much as he and [most importantly] his doctors have documented. it has become evident, throughout this process, that you must begin to slack off within your career for people to assess your pain or suffering. at least in his case, that has been made clear throughout this entire process.

will continue to update once we hear something - but just wanted to keep this thread updated as much as possible for those who may come across it in later months or even years.

just wanted to update...again

husband's findings came back last week - another finding of FIT.

we received the FPEB's rationale. we are sending in a PFR [petition for rationale] and working with the lawyer with that now. he added his notes from the rationale where he felt they were cherry picking and even falsified some of their "evidence" as to why they found him FIT.

once he is done with all of that, will update here.

updating again.

petition for relief was submitted on the 20th june - no word back yet [normal] but hoping he is found UNFIT. his migraines have started to come back pretty severe as well, which he is making an appointment with his neurologist on monday when he goes back into work - kind of disheartening that the botox is starting to not even work for the amount of time it's supposed to.

will update once we hear something back.
