With back surgery getting closer, I have been doing what I can to get ready. The first thing was to inform my employer. Next, I lined up a neighbor to come to my home to care for my cat, Nels.
I have been getting things around my home ready, too—things such as putting often used items waist high. Today Peder came over to rotate my mattress and to help put on clean sheets. He also helped me with the litter box and with getting my Christmas wreath out of the garage.
Last week Heidi surprised me by letting me know she is flying in to help me for four days. I know she will do what she can to help me. My sister is going to come for a couple of days, too. I'll try to post an update after surgery, but not right away.
Prayers are appreciated.
