Surgery is next week! That snuck up quick. April 12th has been looming somewhere in the future and now its practically here.
The question I have for you fellow bloggers that have had surgery already and are recovering is; How long did you need someone to take care of you?
My mom who works from home and lives far away (far enough a plane ticket is necessary) is coming to Boston to help support me through the recovery process. I know at first I'm really going to need someone to help me take meds and eat and be in the hospital with me. I'm guessing I'd need her to be here at least until the first post-op appointment? It is scheduled for 6 days after. That is already 10 days away from work for her. As of now she's got her ticket here but no return ticket so I'm trying to think ahead to when she can get back home.
Any advice? suggestions?
