Surgery Prep for Families

I am getting ready for a surgical procedure and will probably be down and out for a bit. I thought maybe it would be helpful to share some of the great tips people have been giving me to get ready for the big day.

  1. Don’t wear Jeans to the hospital, you’ll be to swollen to wear them home!
  2. Do lots of food prep. Cook as many things as you can stand to in advance and freeze for easy reheat meals.
  3. Hook yourself up. What would you like to do while you are bed ridden? Get caught up on reading, tv series or movies? Make sure you have lots of things within hands reach that you can help to pass your time.
  4. Last but not least – don’t feel guilty, you are the first one to take care of everyone else, ask for help. You will be back on your feet before you know it and will be running things your way again soon.
