  1. 5 more days. Anyone have any ideas on how to relax before the big day?

      Relaxing isn't a big deal. You'll want to relax plenty after the surgery ;) Use this time to make sure everything is in order, so when you no longer can bend over and touch the floor or pick up more than 10 pounds, that everything is set up, and ready for that. Most doctors have the weight lifting restriction in place for 6 to 8 weeks. So make sure you have already purchased any large items that you need for the next couple months (pet supplies, or bulk shopping trips. Canned food gets very heavy, very quickly).

      Make sure all the laundry and house cleaning and yard work is done. Bills are paid. Pet sitting, childcare, houseplant watering.. maybe even work on your Will or advanced directive (living will and/or medical power of attorney). Those won't be needed, but they could be SOME day, so it doesn't hurt to have them made up, regardless.

      You're like, I wanna relax, and here I am, saying better write your Will! Gotto love it! Almost no one dies from this surgery, so it's not really about this operation.. it's just one of those things that everyone should have in place, and almost no one does. Even a verbal Will can work, if you're not particular. "Hey, Honey.. if I don't make it, you get the kids". {Honey will be, oh, so grateful!}

      On a less morbid topic, maybe go through your closet, and arrange clothing according to size. (If you have sizes smaller than you currently wear). You'll start needing them within a couple months.
