TVH-What To Get From Hyster Store?

Hospital:

  • CHAP STICK (I was addicted to this while at castle)
  • HAIR SCRUNCHY
  • BARETTE (COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT THIS!)
  • FACE WASH
  • TRAVEL TOOTHPASTE
  • TRAVEL MOUTHWASH
  • TOOTHBRUSH
  • DEODERANT
  • LOTION (REGULAR & FOO-FOO)
  • TRAVEL SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER (A COMFORT TO ME)
  • SOOTHING THROAT DROPS
  • COMFY OUTFIT FOR GOING HOME (RUNNING PANTS W/ DRAWSTRING & OVERSIZED T-SHIRT)
  • PANTIES (A SIZE TOO BIG)
  • MY OWN PADS (JUST IN CASE)
  • FACIAL MOISTURIZER
  • BRAND NEW ANKLE SOCKS
  • NEW PAIR OF MENS STYLE PJS (COMFY! BUT DIDN'T EVEN USE!)
HOME:

  • CROSS WORD PUZZLES
  • GOOD BOOK
  • GAS-X (A MUST!)
  • LOTS OF SOUPS (EASY ON STOMACH FIRST FEW DAYS)
  • SOOTHING MUSIC CDS (MY HUSBAND BOUGHT ME CELTIC FLUTES-AWESOME FOR GOING TO SLEEP AFTER TAKING MEDS-VERY RELAXING)

I also would recommend:

A grabstick (I have a 12 year old that I use ) and the first several days on the meds I was dropping lots of stuff!

Stool softener (I'm using Metamucil b/cuz it's what I had on hand) - Trust me, you won't regret this!

I personally found the pillow to be to cumbersome for me to press against my belly - I only used my hands - HOWEVER - when going to the restroom the first several days I needed more sooooo - I took a kitchen dishtowel and folded it like 3 times and pushed that against tummy area that hurt the most and it worked like a charm!

Pen & paper by bedside AND on kitchen fridge/counter for any thoughts you want to keep - first week or so I'd lose a thought after 4 feet. Oh, and at hospital to so you can record names of staff that you absolutely MUST commend and why (wish I would have done this.)

Benadryl (CHECK WITH DOC) - Wish I would've remembered this - for allergic reaction to any meds. I discovered I was allergic when I got home and was itchin' like crazy - it also will help you sleep from what I understand. Again, check with doc first.

OH and a biggie....Buy your THANK YOU CARDS and STAMPS NOW....I regret not doing this also...I have all this time to do them and don't have them yet That will be my first errand next week.

Well, Hope this helps someone! If I think of more..I'll be back!

I had surgery on Monday morning. All I needed was my change of clothes to come home the next morning. I didn't even hang around to shower after the doctor came in and said I could leave.
