Is that six weeks off work?  That would be lots of time to read.  Good you got the new TV set-up going, though.

Sounds right.  The 24 hours of post-surgery help is hopefully more precautionary than a definite need for help, but it's good to have it handy if you need it.

Babysitter? So that's what you call Raul, the physical therapist, these days. Or was he the pool guy.

Today I ordered:

A front clasp comfort bra :wacko:

3 books and 2 CD's for down time.

I may have found a babysitter for the 24 hours post surgery :nodhead: my friend Robyn says I should stay at their house.

Does she have a recliner you can sleep in? That would help. You will be surprised how much you use your arms getting into and out of bed.
