Box o’ recovery crap

Counting down the hours! My surgery is scheduled for 8:30am on Thursday and should last about three hours. We are doing reconstruction on my left/flat side and pocket revision plus implant swap on the right side. I’m excited to finally get here after the six-month wait, but I’m also very nervous. Not knowing what is waiting for me is uncomfortable.

My bedside box o’ recovery crap is ready! I used my PBM checklist to gather the essentials:

  • Recovery aidsWater
  • Back scratcher
  • Tissues
  • Tiara (of course!)
  • Digital thermometer
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Measuring cup
  • Alcohol swabs
  • Chap stick
  • Phone and charger
  • Rubber gloves
  • Snacks
  • Medications
  • Camera
  • Lanyard (I will very likely have a drain or two)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Lotion
  • Cough drops
  • Note pad and pen
  • Kindle

I think I’ve got it covered. Don’t you? Now I just need to pack my hospital bag. I expect to be home in the afternoon, so this should be quick. Wish me luck! Talk to you later ‘gaters.
