Making last minute preparations for my hospital admission on Wednesday and I’ve received a few pieces of what I expect is good advice. I suspect there’s more out there. This is what I know:
1. Don’t worry about buying a new night gown. I’ll probably stay in hospital garments. I’m bringing my short robe since I know I’ll be up and around working on how to use my new hip.
2. Drink lots of water. Meds will be messing with my digestive system, so I’ll have to stay on top of it.
3. Be aware of my pain levels. The hospital has been adamant that I shouldn’t grin and bear it.
4. The incision will be hot and I expect itchy.
What else should I be aware of?
Anything I should pack and bring with me?
What should I leave at home?
Your turn. Go!
