I have my follow-up appointment with my neurosurgeon this coming Monday afternoon, about 11 days after my surgery. Hopefully he will allow me to remove the ‘collar of shame’ a few days early so Jan won’t have keep driving me into work next week.

But we’ll see.

Tomorrow we’re meeting our long-time friend Tricia at Gator’s for lunch. Then it’s on up to the Staples in Webster to look at orthopedic business chairs. The captains chair at my computer desk is pretty much worn out.

And since we don’t really plan on traveling in the rig anymore, we figured a recliner would work fine and and give me a lot more support.

But I’ll have to get someone to help me get the old chair out, and then remove the base plate from the floor. I’ve seen an RV Handyman van around so I’ll try to track him down.

But before that I want to actually test-sit in potential candidates before I order something. Then I’ll probably order it online and have it delivered so I don’t have to try and wrestle it in and out of the Jeep.

If I even could.

I hit another recovery goal today, by opening a Coke can pop tab with my bare fingers, instead of having to use a fork.

Next up, wearing jeans again. About 3 weeks ago I had to switch over to sweats because I could no longer button/unbutton them, and even worse, I couldn’t zip/unzip them either.

Thought For The Day:

    Be sure to not overdo, Greg…you do not need some kind of backset!!  As they say in the South: “I hears ya!!”  We have had a lot of adapting to do concerning my Hubby’s issues too, which are in part like yours!!  He is currently in physical therapy trying to get stronger and more stable on his feet.  We shall see…take care!!

    Love the day’s saying….how true it is!!
