Whew! I'm glad to read that, Michelle, on all accounts (Pete's health and your workload!)
We're going to wing it on the dogs - I think they'll spend more time in the yard and garage stall (with a heater, if it gets cool); I'll have my neighbor come wrangle the dogs before PT if I need help. I'll have someone spend the night for the first couple of nights home, people stopping by on their way home from work, and a couple of friends I'll schedule for rides to appointments. One thing about being retired with retired friends, our time is more fluid.
There is stuff to do beforehand, and today's "joint camp" offered insight on what to plan for at the house and what to expect as far as the surgery. Keeping the dogs out from underfoot is going to be critical because they're tripping hazards under the best conditions. I think I'll be moving the SUV to the far side of the garage to leave plenty of space next to the stall and gate, and have it set up so whoever is feeding them doesn't have to fool with them coming into the house via the back door or dog door.
