Same goes for me wishing you both (potty and skibum) an easy recovery. I followed Zanne's advice and took my own pillow. I even took my own soft blanket and pj's! It was the best thing I could have done for myself to help make the hospital stay more comfortable. As the surgeon team would come in each morning they couldn't wait to see what cute new pj's I would have on that day!! Thanks Zanne!
I took a flannel nightie for when I still had the catheter in for the first 3 days and then could switch to top and bottom pj's. Hopefully you can get a tv for your room, and I also brought my son's dvd player to watch movies. That really helped especially at night.
Goodluck to you both :)!! I hope everything goes smoothly and you both enjoy long remissions.
You know those footy socks? The thick ones with the non slip bottems? If you can I'd bring a few of those to the hospital for your stay! They are warm on the tootsies and really comfortable to walk around in! Plus the insides are really soft :). Keep us posted on how it goes!!
