Bag is Packed, Legs are Shaved... Ready to Go!

Well, I just finished packing my bag. I think I thought of everything I will need and also the few little things my husband will need because he will be staying the night at the hospital with me. I even remembered my contact case, saline eye drops, and especially chap stick, face lotion, and DEODORANT!

I had a very hot bath after my bowel prep had done it's thing, shaved my legs so I don't scare anyone, and washed my hair with my favorite shampoo.

Dinner was a nice chilled sugar free orange Jello. (I like the red Jello best but orange will due.) I think I need a cup of hot tea also because I'm freezing!

Have I mentioned that I HATE Bowel Prep!!! My poor bottom! Anyone have advice for a poor raw bum that has been 'prepped' for surgery and wiped to excess??? I even used baby wipes to clean up but I literally spent about 4 hours mostly in the bathroom. (Thank goodness for good books!) Now my poor bum is so sore. Should I use some Neosporin down there? Help!

Sending you well wishes. I used and still is using Neosporin seven days later. My bottom is getting better.

Just one more check point:

Have you cut your toe-nails?

You might not easily do that job for a little while!

Re: Bag is Packed, Legs are Shaved... Ready to Go!

Just cut the toe-nails and gave them a beautiful paint job. The hospital said, "no fingernail polish but toe-nail polish is ok" so my toes are fabulous! I needed to do something to keep my mind off of tomorrow and because they won't let me wear make-up, hair product, or deodorant, I figured that having pretty toes would be just fine. Bright Purple with tons of sparkles. Just the way I like it
