I re-read my blog entries from last year when I had cataract surgery, and I realize I am doing just about the same this year. I seemed to have moaned and groaned and complained for about a week!
I looked again at the post op instructions – one page said not to lift anything over 15 lbs; another page said no lifting over 20 pounds. My little granddaughter is 18, so I think I’m ok on that one no matter which page I’m on. Lifting the 36 pounder over the baby gate probably wasn’t my smartest move, but I only did it one time so I’m not going to worry about it.
I need to go home soon but don’t think I should drive myself, unless I can do it after commuter traffic is over with. I would go the back streets anyway, just to make sure. So thanks again to all who sent me good wishes for my recovery – I’m going to be fine in no time. The main worry about getting home is transporting the dog. She sheds so much that I wouldn’t dream of putting her in anyone’s vehicle except mine.
