ACDF?

Am a mentor for other brain injury men assigned to me by Woprkers Comp. I also used to operate voluntarily three other supervised living homes for such on my street, but after the accident in Aug of 2011,  my last grand mal (TBI-'86) caused a natural semi-fusion of C4-5 and crushing of 6 that pinches nerves to my left arm.  Can no longer lift patients or much else.  Driving is challenging, but it helps if I put my left art on the car door windowsil.  Sleeping is impossible.  Doctor diagnosed ACDF surgery next month.  My question is most of my job entails driving these guys around for activities, appointments and such.  What is what average time must pass before I can drive-sleep well-put on my own socks (my little seiure alarm dog loves to chew them while I put them on!) shower myself-swallow normally (used to be a caterar for 20 years) and work a normal day.  Some months I drive over 2500 miles helping at least 8 people, volunteering for 17 others....What can I expect as the minimal-maximal stuff for this recovery?  When I had to give up two of the four homes (Living in my own alone is #4) I slowed down a lot after I "fell" so I am used to not doing much and have gained 25 lbs.  Any info on what I should expect? Generally? Beau Chaine' aardvarksbicepsort.org
