We've tried to prepare for the next month or so by stockpiling groceries, especially heavier items that I won't be able to lift for a while after surgery. I also rented a power lift medical recliner to rest and sleep in. I won't be able to use my arms to push out of a chair, so the chair lifts you up half way to where you can stand without using your arms. Having the reclining function should aid with rest since I won't be able to sleep in my side, my usual sleeping position. Dan has also arranged for animal care help and he is looking into hiring a housekeeper so that the household burden will not be on him alone. It won't be a picnic but we should be able to manage the situation.
