    There's the unwritten law of SWMBO, MBO... or prepare for dire consequences
    Hope your resting well, and get a quick 'thumbs up OK' from the Doc soon!!!

    I feel your pain, when I was recovering from the cancer surgery, all I could do was sit and watch videos, got boring real fast, then I could sit at the L shop and run the cash register, again BORING.... Ah well, you have to do what you have to do, and that certainly includes doing what you are told when you are recovering.....

    Best of luck!

    Hard as it is now, you will be thankful that the loyl held hard to her guns and had you follow the docs orders, it is for your own good for healing. I like Kens idea, make use of the internet as a learning tool. Who knows, you just might find a new box design that you want to make Next thing you know you will be making dust again

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Recovery of any type, including sitting still, can be excruciating for those of us who are happiest when doing something. The pain of recovery is nothing compared to the pain of additional recovery time brought on by going active too soon. DAMHIKT.

    Do what wife says. Do what Doc says. Recovery can be the hardest part.
    Most important advice can be hardest to follow.
    I didn't and will suffer rest of my life for it.

    Ken , You can do it !
    Man I been in traction for 3 weeks before and after my sinus surgery I was strapped to a recliner day and night for 2 weeks. So you can do a few days.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Hang in there Ken! It's only a few days to seeing the Doc. I wish you the best in getting back to the shop, if only to "putter around" for a few days.
