I hope to be rid of it a week or so after surgery anyway.
The house is clean - the laundry done. Lots of comfy clothes up front in the closet for the long recuperation.
I am very fortunate that my son and his fiancee are coming for the first 10 days to take care of me - she is a nurse about to embark on a doctoral program, so I was lucky to catch her during this particular week. She has already been giving me advice and lots of lovely gifts of comfy and practical post-op goodies. As the doctor said to me during my pre-op exam - my son chose well...Not that he's not a fabulous caretaker, himself.
My youngest daughter is going to take over after the kids return to Reno around the 19th. She will be with me for about a week - then my husband is up to bat. Hoping I will be pretty self sufficient by then...He is accustomed to being taken care of by me - this is the first time the tables will be turned.
I find I really, really miss my Advil - didn't realize how much my knees and feet hurt without anti-inflammatory meds. It has been hard to sleep with the pain and mounting anxiety. Having my prep done will help my monkey brain settle, I hope!
I have two more days at work and should hear from the surgery scheduler tomorrow about my time on Wednesday. So this is happening.
