Okay, we're down to the last week.
It was suggested to me last night that I might want to consider renting a recliner to recover in for the first week or two. You see, my living room is curiously devoid of chairs. We own a sofa. It's a rather large sofa. As there are only two of us, it seems to do the trick. However, I must agree that recovery on the sofa would not be pleasant. It is squishy and deep and really comfortable, provided you haven't just had your pelvis rearranged.
Here's my prepatory tidbit for you. If you need to rent a recliner, Rent A Center does offer a "lift chair" which you might recognize from that great old commercial where it literally lifts the old lady completely from a sitting position into a standing position in only 14 hours! However, I just learned that, in my neck of the woods, Rent A Center requires 3 weeks notice before they have them in stock. I would only need the chair for 2 weeks. You can do the math.
Also, all other recliners for rent are rockers. I can't imagine that being good for recovery.
So, the question is what do I do now? Hmmmmm.........
