Thank you Jacky, thank you Mimi, Elisea, Sheryl and everyone! I don't even care that I'm not ready for Monday, being two weeks behind now. I'm just going to take my toothbrush and pillow and walk out the door. I'll figure the rest out later! Although in truth, I got a lot done today!

Hi Janet,
That will work. I'm sure that your hubby will bring you anything else that you need. Have relaxing and special Sunday! I'll be thinking about you on Monday and will be waiting for your first post.
Jacky,
How are you doing?

Today was more putting the house in order. Had to rearange a couple of rooms to accomodate the new power chair. Plus getting the bedroom more squared away. I did pick a spot to start collecting things to pack. They gave me two ice bags (low tech) at the pre op visit, and told me to mark the bags (not just the caps) with Left and Right. Why? Because if there is any infection in one incision, it won't cross contaminate the other. I never would have thought of that. I will have to mark the cryo cuffs as well. I think I'll wait until rehab to tell hybby what I need in the way of shower chair and toilet riser. Didn't get around to getting those this last couple of weeks.

I went back six pages and read through all my posts of the last couple of weeks. Put it to bed. Moving on. Cookie Monster and Elmo are in a box waiting for me!

Hi Janet,
We bought two power recliners tonight. We aways do everything together. :hysterical: Looking forward to the delivery.
My coworker had her hip replaced in November. She said that she just ordered everything (toilet riser, huge ice pads that she said she still can't live without, a shower transfer bench, walker.......from the hospital PT and her husband took them home that day. Maybe you, too, will be able to shop right from your hospital bed. If only they sold shoes at the bedside! :th_heehee:

Nyland, I hope you both like your chairs. You can have power lift races! :th_heehee: I figured I'd know more what is available and what I need if I wait, especially since I am not coming straight home from the hospital. But I know where to tell my husband to go - to get the seats!
