Things that I'll be taking to hospital



Recommended Posts

Where's the tequila and limes ?????

Just kidding.

I wasn't allowed to wear anything but their no-slip socks as far as footwear was concerned.

Most important things I took:

Pillow for ride home.....hold against abdomen and relax.

Post op pain med prescription filled for the ride home.

iPhone loaded with an iBook, iTunes and my earbuds.

Anker remote battery for easy recharges and no need to reach for a wall outlet...able to keep everything on my rolling table.

Gas-X strips were taken but never used.

Geez, why don't tell her to bring diet coke and straws? ;-) Oh and pizza coupons.

LONG cords for your chargers were helpful by the way. Slip on shoes were great.

Everyone was only simply trying to help. Your profile picture says "There is power in positivity" there certainly is but it begins within first. I pray that you have a great journey & realize that we are all here to be system of support & to learn through each stage.

No one was trying to attack you in anyway but for some reason you seem really sensitive, I was pretty grouchy on the pre-op diet as well so I get it. We can all learn & grow from each other.

With much love & peace to you on your journey... Good luck!

@@Dub Great post at 4:31.

I wish I knew what hospital; I'd call the OR, nurses stations and admins to alert them: Buckle up and hold on! Dang.

PS [7:35 PM]: After reading the OP's response to me [5:55 or so] and others, I will now add to the above...an English/spelling book; a book about proper syntax; and most importantly, a STAT psych evaluation immediately upon the patient's arrival.

The non-medical person in me is cracking up: are we being punked? (Didn't Alex just post something about this approach?) But the physician/surgeon in me says serious "psychochopathology," maybe borderline personality/emotion dysregulation? And we don't even have to be a medical person to consider that.

Y'all have fun here.

You know I wasn't going to say anything else but you are being absolutely ridiculous!

My dear if you keep running into drama on the forums, you ever stop to think hmmmm....maybe it's you. No one was being rude or manipulative as you said but simply offering assistance and telling you their experience. I'm sooooo glad you have the support you need and I also pray that you aren't so harsh with them. I also tend to believe those that are sooooooo happy with their lives don't feel the need to have to say it constantly. While I hope you are truly happy, I doubt it..

In the words on the late great Michael Jackson (because I know I shouldn't even respond to this)..I'm starting with the man in mirror, I'm asking him to change his ways and I urge you to do the same.

The best of luck to you on your journey..

I will now return to my joyless life.

Peace, love and happiness.

I am dying here. D'Sleeved may need to change her forum name if she ever wants to post again! LOL Did anyone pay attention to how many likes the POSITIVE comments got? I too brought all those things and never used any of them. In fact, I have a brand new box of Biotene still unopened. I preferred crunching ice chips to wet my mouth.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
