I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Keeping good thoughts for you...and hoping the weather holds out..
We could not have a cell phone in the room, and they discouraged anything of value for that matter, so check with your own hospital. You own pillow is a good idea, I'd take a warm pr. of slipper socks or slippers you can slide into for the walk. I did take a robe..
I also loved a new product I'd discovered called WISPS...a sort of mini disposable tooth brush. Comes with a dab of minty toothpaste, but you don't need water and when your mouth is dry it is also refreshing, until you can drink something. Some sort of lip gloss , blistex, or chapstick came in handy....you will fill chapped and dry for a day or so..
I washed my hair before I went in and was glad I did as it was a couple days before I could do it again. Some are allowed the next day, but that wasn't the case for me..
Didn't feel much like.
For a couple weeks, but we are all different, so might pack a magazine of some light.
Good luck to you. It's an exciting time..
Good luck with.
; mine is on Wed. I also live in VA near DC. I'm having.
At Fair Oaks Hopsital in Farifax, VA. Where are you having.
We'll have to keep in touch on how it goes. I wish you the best...
I just had.
4 days ago. I was in the hospital 2 days and the second day they let me have a shower, so my list is a little longer thank some others!.
I took (and used) my own slip-on slippers, a robe, favorite pillow, chapstick, deoderant, c-pap mask and tubing, toothbrush/toothpaste, hand lotion, earplugs (wore one at night), shampoo and conditioner, hair products, stuff to keep my hair off my face, and cell phone..
Something I took and didn't use: my kindle (couldn't read, just kept falling asleep!)..
Stuff they provided that I was very greatful for: personal.
Wipes (I got pretty ripe smelling very quickly) & towel and handcloth (with the IV in my "wiping hand", I had to get creative with the towel after the catheter came out and I had to go to the bathroom on my own)..
Something I wish I had taken: an ipod with relaxing.
You will do great! Can't wait to hear how it goes!.
I will be thinking of you and praying for you quick recovery. You are going to be GREAT. I'm not having mine until next week so, I can't give you any advise on what to pack although I have heard over & over again ...chapstick. I agree with the iPod or something that you can listen to.
With will help drown out all the noise in the hospital..
Post as soon as you feel up to it I'll be looking forward to hearing how well you're doing!.
Good luck on your.
I recommend chapstick, wisps, loose clothing to wear home, and a pillow..
I like the idea someone said of earplugs, my first night in the hospital, I had an older lady in the next room, who didn't have GBS and she screamed and carried on.......all night long..
The next day when she started in again, I asked to be moved to another room.........they told me nothing was available.........I asked about another floor, and said "look I just had major.
, I didn't get to rest at all last night because of her, I can't do another night of that......send me home, I'll get the rest I need there" a little bit later she came in and told me they found another room for me, and so the second night I would have slept much better, but it seemed every time I drifted off, they came in with meds or to check vitals..
Boy was it nice to get home..
Update us as soon as you can...
