I was able to have a scheduled surgery and was also not out of town for as long as a recipient would be but I am an over thinker and over planner. Here's what I did.
We have a binder at home of all of our emergency contacts, passwords, insurance info, warranties etc. I made sure our house sitter knew where it was and also told my sister about it. I should have brought the password page as I forgot a lot of them were saved to my laptop & I was using my phone instead.
I lined up a back up dog & house sitter. I left our car keys in case our cars needed to be moved or the alarms went off. I gave my neighbor a spare house key. I cleaned before we left but hired someone to clean before we got home. I asked my sister to drop dinner off for our first night back.
I used insta cart? Not sure if that's the correct name. We were at Rochester Mayo and Walmart has a shopping service where you just need to go and pick up the groceries. I planned a menu for our 2 week stay and my husband picked it up. He could have done the shopping but I typically do the cooking and shopping and he was worried he'd forget key ingredients. In hindsight, I would have done the same when we got home because the limited lifting restriction made shopping difficult.
