From a guy with 32 years with one heck of a sweet wife, DON"T,,, DO NOT go and get yourself one of those little bells to ring when you want her to bring you something!!! They don't taste good and you can't "pass" it without intentense pain!!!LOL!!
Take care of yourself and don't push it. Get healed up completely otherwise you will have "barometric bones" and be able to predict weather changes 48 hours before they happen and your boy will call you a grumpy old bear. Enjoy the time with him; watch TV together and do stuff he likes to do. You only get kids for a little while so make the most of it!
