My prep ideas if small pets around plus some other tips

Its just my husband and I at home. We purchased pet steps for our 10year old 10 lb Coton De tulear. She cant get on bed on her own and is good company while resting in bed. Although she needed stairs she spent lots of time with my husband during first few days post op. Pillow on tummy while in bed always. We also have rescued 2 kittens so pillow was great when one would surprise me with a bouncy greeting. I bought a cushion for sitting up in bed it is so comfy. Also caught up on laundry and cleaning since I vacuum just about everyday. We set up a TV in bedroom its been a nice distraction.
Drink plenty of water before and after surgery. While being preped for surgery I gave my husband a lip balm to keep in his pocket, since the air is so dry due to the A/C in hospital. It was handy when i needed instead of always digging in some bottomless bag..lol
Morning after I did light makeup made me feel much better. I have heavy wavy hair so I kept it curly. If i had straightened it it would look greasy next day. Sounds so silly but it helped me mentally. I also bought nice supportive boy shorts and 2 pair athletic yoga type pants. Went to a friends house for dinner about a week later wore new pants and dolled up. Friends said I looked great. But boy pain reliever was wearing off and didn't feel that fine. But I was out and had a great time. Husband happy to be out socializing too.😄These are my tips. Wish i was more on top of the digestive issues but that is soooo much better now. Thanks for support and sisterhood ladies
