Been off line as I had my rotator cuff surgery, which ended up being more extensive than originally thought, so it was incisional vs arthroscopic. Doing well, have Mom and college girl helping with ADLs and general life stuff such as cooking, laundry, driving. Already started physical therapy (ouch!). One major reason for having this surgery now is the fact that my medical ins. is changing to a high deductable savings plan, so best to get this procedure, the follow up therapy, as well as wisdom teeth surgery for all the kids addressed before July 1.
Costs so far?
-2 men's xxl v neck T shirts to wear over my sling
-$50/week for PT co-pays
-generic Advil, which we use anyway
-generic RX pain pills
I'm covering Mom's gas costs as we are only able to use her car and gas-ends up about what I spend weekly with commuting to work and my usual driving for appointments, errands, etc. I did treat Mom to lunch @ Applebee's but I used a $25 free to me thru credit card points, gift card, so it was a very cheap lunch out!
