I started my packing for my hospital stay, which should be just for the night, hopefully.

I know it’s major surgery, but it’s such little incisions, will I feel the missing parts?  I never felt them before, what’s the difference? The only thing that worries me is blood clots. I have had a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) in the past. And all I read about it the fear of blood clots, so you needed to get up as soon as possible.

My Oncologist told me he would put me on the machine that will get the fluids out, I hope. I’m going to put that behind me and double check my list.

To pack:

DL, insurance cards

Ten foot charging cable


ear plugs

notebook and pen

toothbrush, toothpaste


gripper socks

reading glasses



I’m packing light.
