Preparations...'s only a week away. We'll be heading to London on Thursday the 6th because they want me at the hospital at 6:00 am on the 7th. There's no way I'm getting up that early to drive to London, especially since I won't be allowed to even have a coffee!!!

Like I said in my previous post, I've been trying to get organized so have started packing my little overnight bag for my hospital stay. Besides the usual toiletries, etc., I'm packing some fun things to make my stay a little nicer. Here's what I've got so far:
  • Breast Cancer Teddy Bear I won at the Breast Cancer event at Critter Cravings in Kincardine a few weeks ago. Critter Cravings is an awesome store and where we purchase all our dog and cat food and treats...many many treats!

  • A bright pink photo album filled with pictures of my family and pets.

  • Since I was told to pack full coverage underwear (the nurse actually laughed and said "no thongs") because I'll need to wear pads after my surgery (EWWWWWWW!), so I bought some regular underwear at Walmart, but also got this sexy little number. They have an adorable black kitty print and say "Itty Bitty Kitty Committee".

  • I was also told to bring slippers for walking, so I'm bringing these! Should be good for a laugh.

  • They said I could bring my own pajamas for the 2nd day, so following with the theme, these babies are packed! They are black adorable flannel pjs with black cats sleeping on little white clouds...too cute!

  • I'm also hoping I'll get the laptop I want this weekend so I can take it with me too. Apparently you can take your laptop into the hospital; just not cell phones.
I've also told my hubby that I want a TV hooked up as soon as I'm in my room. My most favourite TV show, Ghost Whisperer, airs Friday nights and I don't care how groggy or drugged up I am...I am not missing it!!! LOL

Well, that's about it for now...I'll try post again before I go in to get spayed! Just my little bit of dog and cat lover humour at work there!

Oh I love your suitcase items and you will bring an air of levity to those surrounding you. I admire your resolve to see this through with a smile.
