Suppose someone knows that he will miss a day during Sefira (having surgery). Is it proper for him to count with a Bracha up until the day he will miss?
There is a concept brought in Hilchos Sefiras Haomer that one of the reasons women shouldn't make a Bracha is because they are likely to forget one day. Not sure if it stands Lehalacha, but it would appear to apply here (where the person knows for sure that he will miss).
[On the other hand, it might be different here because of the surgery aspect]
This is definitely an interesting question.
