Thanks for sharing this! However self conscious I am about my gait, I still work and I still make a point to get around with my daughter. I have taken a position, and I bet ur partner can do the same, that uses transferable skills from the construction site (like scheduling, estimating, admin, permits, purchasing, union responsibilities, etc). The only concern I have there is that I can sit at a desk for eight hours and I get pretty stiff and tight when I do get up. I agree with all the advice--keep moving! Good luck and please let us know how it goes.
