Yay I rather be safe then sorry... I don't think I will be waring the same thing home; due to the fact that what I am waring to the hospital is tight fit-it pants and what I am waring home that outfit is much looser... I don't want to irritate my incision.

My date is the 16th, so wish me luck and blessing

I also wore the same thing home that I wore there. Loose and comfortable. You will need to wear the hospital gown in order to allow for iv and monitoring equipment and they put socks with slip free bottoms on you prior to surgery. The socks were great to walk in because I sure didnt want to bother with getting into shoes. When walking around the floor, they gave me an extra gown I wore backwards so nothing was hanging out. You really dont need much.

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.

Like I said before to each is own... This is my journey I am entitled to make the same mistakes as you to did. Thanks for your opinions but, I am still taking my things.

Once again you can send as many wishes and prayers and I heard one person opinion don't need to keep hearing the same thing over and over again.

Thank for your response, but it gets a little redundant. I appreciate what was said but like I said thank for your opinion. But I don't need to keep hearing it... Now I have to add your opinion to something that wasn't directed towards you... Until now

It looks like you're a great planner, kudos to that.

And I'll chalk up your sensitivity to other opinions to be just a side effect of the pre-op diet.

Good luck, I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

What I don't understand is that it's okay to tell me what I would or should bring and nine times out of ten every one took what they chose to take... My life and my journey. I really like this website because it gives everyone the chance to be proud about get what ever type of procure and ask advice when need.... If any one have ever read my post in the past when I ask for advice I'll ask... I am not about to allow unnecessary comments get to me. Just please be aware I am human and my right to anyone opinion should be expected the same way you want me to accept yours.

I am not going to keep hearing people indicate what I should or shouldn't bring when I expressed I did want to hear it... Instead people want to write what they brought to hospital... On this one I just wanted to hear you are prepared... Take my feeling into consideration not just everyone opinion.

You do realize that when you post on here you are essentially asking for thoughts and feedback, right?

If you don't want thoughts and feedback, then post the picture on Pinterest.

NO ONE was even remotely trying to be offensive or insensitive to you. At all.

      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.

        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
