    Thanks Ed. I do have to be at the hospital very early. But at least the anesthesiologist was able to speak to my Doctor today. . We refilled the pump so that nothing needs to be done with it until January.
    The anesthesiologist at the hospital wanted to turn the pump off for surgery but my Dr. said that cannot be done safely. I guess it is good that they discussed it.
    I will post when I can

    I did make it to rehab. It wasn't an easy trip. Everybody at rehab questions the brace .it is unusual and difficult to deal with.it wasn't as painful as I thought.

    Jackie, How are you posting? I have to ask.

    Your not playing chopsticks on the piano are you? You know, gunslinger style? (smiley face)

    So glad the pain is under control.....

    I am 2 weeks today. Only 4 weeks until brace comes off. It is uncomfortable in the brace and to do everything one handed is a learning curve but I am getting there.
    The brace has caused a lot of questions. It is big and bulky. It wasn't as bad as I thought. I will still need help at home. One day at a time

    How is the sleeping going? Are you using a chair of some sort, or recliner bed?

    I will be using a hospital bed and recliner. It gets painful in bed so I have to get up in the chair.
