Default Help, I'm' under house arrest!


Thousands of people have their appendix out every year with very little complications. Somebody please tell my wife. She had me under house arrest! She took and hid the car keys, the key to my shed so I cant even work on the lawn. While she was cone to work, I trimmed the hedges and did some weeding. I feel like I'm disabled and have no worth!

Her father died after having hip replacement from a blood clot and is sure I will go the same way. When at work, she calls me every 30 minutes to check on me. I didn't answer once and she came home to check on me. I might as well have an ankle bracelet on.

Any suggestions? I have 2 weeks before I go back to the doctors.

Steve

Wow, I've never had anyone look after me like that besides my mom. All of my womens would make me go to work to bring them home some money whether I was sick or not. I had to swear off of women for good. lol

I know you're going stir crazy but maybe you can do some work on your web site or take up knitting.

If we give you suggestions, your wife will kill all of us.

Hmmm.

Well I'm guessing the grass over there has slowed down, I'd most likely call my customers & let them know of the situation.

You just have to explain to them, what the woman wants, the women gets or else!

Hehe, I wish you tons of luck!

If I think of something, I will let you know right away!

I'm tempted but I'd have to come back twice a day to have her clean the drain (I have a drain tube in the incision). It's sore but not a disability.

Looks like the perfect opportunity to do research which I am sure you have been doing... But there is only so much research that can be done before you are all researched out. lol
