Thanks everyone for the posts on my surgery date topic (March 1st)! They were very helpful and insightful! Okay, so I was wondering what I need to know about
the surgery day. Is there anything that you wish you would have known ahead of time? What sort of things would be good to have with me during my hospital stay? Also, with the first few weeks being home; anything that you can tell me to help me to be better prepared? Any tips are welcome! I am trying to get prepared for next Tuesday.. that's me, the organizer! hehe! I am bringing fragrance diffusers (hate the smell of hospitals), books, word searches, lotion (making my hubby rub my feet:), music, and clothes. I don't know, maybe I will be in too much pain or drugged up to want to read a book, thought I'd bring it in case. Thanks a bunch!
