Monday Will Be a Big Day for Me
After being confined to where my feet can take me for a month, I will be making a car trip for the first time tomorrow since since my neck surgery, for two medical appointments – the only excuse for getting into a car good enough for my surgeon. I will, of course, milk it for all it's worth.
I first have to have a neck X-ray in Templeton early enough for my surgeon to get the results before I see him at 3:15. Since I'm supposed to avoid being in the car very much, I thought we should have lunch in Atascadero or San Luis Obispo on the way to the appointment. We normally eat at Hometown Buffet, but I'm wondering if there's more risk of catching the flu there than somewhere else. I don't need the flu. After we go to the doctor, unless he forbids it, we will go do our Costco shopping, since it's in the same city, which is 30 miles from home. We don't like to waste gasoline.
Considering I haven't gone anywhere except for walks in weeks, I'm sure I will get pretty tired before I get home. I may not be able to get on the computer for very long. I may choose to collapse with a book, though Hubby will probably want to watch TV and the two activities aren't compatible in the same room. I'm hoping the doctor will say my neck is healing as expected and I just need to keep it up. I'm hoping he may lift some of the restrictions on my activities. But I'll just have to wait and see. I will let you all know how it goes. Meanwhile, I'm scared to death of being in an accident or going over a rough road that could injure my delicate neck before it heals. The vibration of the car is not good for it, and some of our highways we need to take are somewhat rough.
