Your Turn


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!

  1. Crap, I just saw this. Yes, take the pain meds. A relief from pain allows your body to heal faster. Take your laptop or have your hubby bring it to you — there’s free wireless. Also, keep a notebook close by your bed for your family to keep track of everything the nurses/doctors tell you — date & time. xoxoxox
