Today is my first day of being able to get up and be somewhat independent. I got up and let out the dogs. I was a bit nervous because the lab mix likes to jump on you and stretch first thing in the morning. She was really good and didn't try to jump on me. Each dog has a "baby" they sleep with at night. I couldn't pull those out of their beds, but the rest went really smoothly. I think today we are also going to go out to get some dog food and then to office depot for some work from home supplies.
All in all, the advice my brother and sister-in-law gave me was great and hubby deserves the "nurse of the year" award for always being there to take care of me. During the 22 (almost 23) years that we have been married, he has taken care of me through 6 surgeries now. I have only had to take care of him through 1 or 2.
