Having a laptop is a great way to entertain yourself while you recover. You can play games, search the Internet, talk with friends via instant messaging and a number of other things. You can also do some work, write stories, send emails and nearly anything else. Having your laptop nearby will offer you quite a bit of entertainment options when you recover.
If you are about to have surgery, you have likely been very busy getting ready. You have a lot of things you want to do at your house like install safety features and make meals. You also wanted to organize help, gather entertainment, and look into alternative mobility devices. In order to get completely ready for your surgery, you will want to gather information as well so that you are as fully informed about the process as possible. Here are a few examples of information items you will want to gather.
Make sure you understand what you will need like blood work, physical exams, possibly even an EKG and then make sure you have those items lined up before the day of your surgery. You do not want one little thing to derail the timing of your surgery once you have everything else in your life prepared for it.
Your child's worst nightmare has come true. He has an injury that has taken him off one leg...and out of his favorite sport. Though our child is on crutches this year and unable to participate in his sport of choice, there are things you can do to help him stay in the game so that he doesn't miss out on anything really important. Here are a few examples.
Just because your child can't run, jump, kick, or do any of the other necessary movements to put him in the center of the game does not mean he can't participate in other ways. See if your child's team needs a scorekeeper or perhaps a stats person. If nothing else, your child should at least attend the games and cheer his team on. Perhaps he can even be of service at practice as well. Keep your child on the team so he can enjoy participating in every way possible, even if he can't help with the actual game.
