Next Wednesday my hubby has to go to an important meeting at work then to a work Holiday party.  He will be gone all until probably 8 or 9pm.  I'll be 13 days out from surgery.  My 5 year old will be gone from 7:40am-3pm, my 3 year old will be going to preschool from 9:30-12:30.  (And I have rides scheduled for both of them so I wont have to drive or go anywhere).  But I will have my 19 month old ALL day.  She's 22ish pounds and takes a nap around 1 as does my 3 year old.  Then everyone will be home and up by 3/4pm.  I could possibly have our babysitter come over from 4-8 and she will put them to bed but I'm wondering if thats really necessary?  I'm 9 days PO now and I def couldnt do it today.  Thoughts?

I'd go with the sitter just to be safe. How are you feeling now?

I'm doing ok. Went out last night to my son's Chrustmas program but I was still walking slow and kinda limping. People at school know I had "surgery" just not what kind. For all they know I had leg surgery. I enlisted my mom to come over from 5-8-ish just to be safe :)
