Goodmorning everyone,
The hospital where I am having my surgery called yesterday. I have to attend a "Back Class" next Thursday for 2 hours. Has anyone heard of this? The nurse said they will discuss the surgery and recovery including meds and things I will and wont need. I just thought this was a bonus. Who knows! Also Cali-Sue mentioned something...a bag for the way home! Well that ought to be a real treat...where is a good ol' fashioned station wagon when you need one?!
I guess if God would have meant today to be perfect, he wouldn't have invented tomorrow...


  • Annie, I think that is great that you get a class. Is your surgery at a spine center? I didn't get anything like that at my local hospital. I think the more prepared you are the better.

    Now don't make fun of my plastic bag :))( . I forgot mine, but snagged one of those patient belongings bags for the car seat. I kept it in my car and used it for a few weeks. It really helps a lot (just like the satin sheets).

    Now on the ride home try to use a car that is not too high, not too low, and avoid bumpy streets. My daughter chose the bumpy old country road in our neighborhood, OUCH!

    Happy planning, >:D< Cali-Sue

    P.S. Can the station wagon have the wood panneling on the sides? =))
  • Cali-Sue,
    Way toooo funny!! :))( I thought you needed the plastic bag in case you got sick on the way home!! Boy do I need this forum!! My surgery will be at a hospital in Buffalo, NY. Wood panels on the side of the station wagon...now you are talkin!! :H
  • That's the beauty of the plastic trash bag. It has many useful purposes! B)
