  •  I am glad to hear that she's coming home.. (6+ / 0-)

    That's steps in right direction.

    I can remember my recovery after the back surgery to relieve the spinal stenosis caused by the lesion. I found that a laptop was really not something that I could use from a prone position during the bed ridden phase of my recovery.

    A Kindle was my best friend, because it was light enough that I could hold it up to my face while flat on my back. I think I read more in those couple of months than I read in years. I also had a couple of audiobooks for when my arms got tired.

    I also remember my cat used to curl up under my arm and spend the day with me. He was always a sensitive little fellow. When I got better, he stopped coming around.

    There will be some darkness along the way, but there will be light as well. Try to laugh at least once a day.

    I'll be thinking of you both. Peace.

    BTW, if I had to do it again, I probably use a stand like this for a laptop. http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/... The flexible arm would make all the difference in getting it to a comfortable position.
