Bad timing

I really wanted to be able to go visit some of my friends from school over our winter break but it doesn’t look like that is going to happen, my next surgery is scheduled for January 11th, we come back to school January 22nd and the doc says I shouldn’t fly for at least 2 weeks after surgery. The only options I have is to either not go visit or take the long bus ride by myself, which mom probably won’t let me do anyway
