...go through this surgery and recovery?

What would you wish friends and family could have done to help?

Fmily and friends helped by coming over, calling, bringing food, keeping me company. They helped by taking me to the dr., washing my hair in the sink as I could not shower for 2 weeks, bringing me library books and magazines. You can sure tell who your fair weather friends are, who sort of disappeared for this time period. My husband did most of the caretaking and took two weeks off from work which was invaluable.
