...and the verdict is...

...not in yet. Sigh. But, the thing is DONE!

The lawyer said it went as well as it could have gone, so that's encouraging. The judge said he believed Terri's testimony, and I think that after all is said and done they proved that Terri cannot work a 40-hour week, which is what we were there to prove. I did not have to testify, as the judge felt he had enough information without my additional testimony (which the lawyer interpreted as a good sign). So... although we did not get a ruling today, we feel fairly optimistic that Terri will receive a favorable ruling and get her full benefits.

We'll know anywhere from a week to 90 days; we'll get the results in the mail. Kinda frustrating, but at least it seems that things went well and it's DONE! Terri's sisters were there for support and overall, it went as well as we could have hoped.

So, keep those good thoughts coming and I'll let you know when we finally DO hear. :)

Glad the hearing went well! I am so relieved and I can't imagine how relieved you two must be. But golly, waiting for a week to 90 days! I'm not going to have any fingernails left!

Thank goodness -- that's one hurdle you've got behind you. Don't let the wait cause too much anxiety.

Fingers crossed and good thoughts coming your way. I've had to go through this process with clients before and all the red tape always annoys me. I look forward to hearing a positive answer sooner rather than later.

Thanks, everyone. We're not terribly worried, although it will be nice to get the verdict... hopefully soon!
