hi. I just introduced myself in the intro forum. I have a 2 level PLIF this coming Wed. my question: I have 2 kids... 11 & 5 yrs old. and stairs all over our home. my husband has lined up 5 weeks of help for me. that's a beautiful thing... but I was wondering if that is overkill? or will I probably need it? I have stairs all over the place. like from our master bedroom on the second floor... just to get to my bathroom, I have to go up 4 stairs. so... 2 questions, really. how big a deal will stairs be? and will I actually need that much help?
they're obviously not babies... but I still prepare meals for them, and do the baths, and bedtime routine and all that. surely 5 weeks is plenty right? assuming no setbacks and I'm a good girl and do as I'm told during recovery?
thank you all for your thoughts.
