ahh. i see. well, something to do = a book, magazines, knitting, whatever. your tunes. SLIPPERS and toiletries - the hospital slippers don't stay on your feet and are slippery, and you'll probably be happier with your own face cleanser and toothpaste.
now, about the critters. who's gonna take care of them while you're in the hospital? and - voice of experience - emptying the litter box the first couple of days after getting home is - a little uncomfortable. but it eases up after a couple of days [not even a week]
and when you get home, most docs don't want you to lift anything heavier than about 10 pounds. so don't plan to be hauling cat litter into the house!!!
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
