If in 3 1/2 weeks you are not up to an 8 hr drive can you break it up with an overnight stay and just do 4 hrs in 2 installments? If you have that option then it will take a little pressure off you. If you find when you hit the road you can do it in one trip then go for it. I'm just more concerned about
your placing this kind of pressure on you so soon after the surgery.
It is such an important occasion I know you don't want to opt out of it. 4 days after discharge I had a 3 hour drive back home with my husband and he did very well. Any longer drive would have been a bit much...3 1/2 weeks after surgery I think is do able but I would have an overnight stay in the mix as a plan B just to be on the safe side.
Good Luck. I'm sure your little girl will be a fantastic flower girl.
