Hm. I hadn't thought about needing a shower chair. Image found here.
Thanks for all the support, guys! It appears that many of us are having or have had surgeries similar to the laminectomy that I have scheduled for late October. I've received oodles of emails and messages that include preparation and recovery tips, as well as much appreciated encouragement.
Y'all are the best. Seriously.
Reader Allisande, who will also have surgery soon alerted me to this very extensive and informative post on the Spine-Health forum. What do you think of this list? Would you make any additions?
