At some point, everyone faces some minor medical crisis. This week, of course, I had oral surgery. I'm recovering okayish (which is code for THIS SUCKS ROYALLY).
Fortunately, I had guarded my time to do a work project, so my week was fairly open. I asked for an extension on the project, as I could not do it justice on pain meds. (When you always meet your deadlines, people take you very seriously when you do need an extension.)
Here's the breakdown of how I used my planner for post-surgery recovery.
I used my daily docket to schedule my meds and ice packs. It's a little complicated since one med is every six hours and the others are every four hours, rotating, but one not before driving.
As I take a med, I highlight it.
I put instructions right there on my planner, on the date of the surgery. After all, that space was blank since I had surgery that day, and following instructions while on pain meds is not easy.
Real Life Goes On
I still have space on my weeklies for normal tasks and I still have my ongoing task list. But I am quite aware that I will only get the little stuff done.
Notes for Doctor
Finally, I have a place dedicated for recording high temperatures or anything else that merits a call to the doctor.
