A Little Help from My Friends
Tuesday, October 28, 2014
I don't let my homelife spill into my worklife very often. Yesterday was an exception. I mentioned to a co-worker that I'll be out of the office for a few days due to my Guy's back surgery. She said, "When you go to pick him up from the hospital, put some different-sized pillows in your car. He can use what he needs to make himself comfortable on the ride home."
Brilliant! I never would have thought of that!
His surgery is Wednesday around noon. It's a minimally-invasive disc-reduction procedure with an overnight stay at the hospital. The hospital complex is about an hour away from our home. I'll stay there all day Wednesday, come home to walk Lola and sleep. Then I'll return Thursday to bring him home.
Any additional suggestions? The whole ordeal of surgery, hospital stay, transportation and home recovery is new to me.
