Must haves and comforts...

Part of my pre-surgical journey has been digging up as much info as possible to get me prepare for the big day.  In this quest of ultimate surgical knowledge, I have encountered a lot of wonderful tips, products and ideas.  I am going to work on compiling them in this post. I will update it as I go.

Hospital Must- Haves:

  • Pillow with your own cozy pillowcase
  • Gas-X strips
  • Toothbrush/paste
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Clean undies
  • Chap stick
  • Lotion
  • Phone/Tablet
  • Mouth wash
  • Slippers with grippers
  • Abdominal Binder- I have only seen one person mention this but I would imagine it will be a friggin life saver
  • Loose clothes
  • Phone charger!

Pre/Post-op Must- Haves:

  • Cup warmer (GENIUS! for those times you are eating something warm and don't want it to be cold by the time you finish)
Beverage Warmer

  • Powdered milk... for those liquid diet days when clear broth gets boring and you want something "creamy"
  • Yonanas machine. It takes plain, frozen fruit and turns it into a frozen treat!

  • How about Unjury's 21g of protein CHEESE SAUCE?! What fat kid doesn't like them some cheese sauce... mix this with some spaghetti squash and its healthy mac.
 Protein’d® Cheese Sauce, by UNJURY® Protein
  • Sippy cup/ Tervis cup!
  • Baby spoons
  • Baby plates
  • Pill box for vitamins

Those are my best ones so far. I will add more as I find them!
