here's my list.. sanitary pads to use instead of gauze over the draining incisions.
SF ice pops. protein drinks. chicken and beef broth. tomato soup. american cheese to melt into the tomato soup. things like crystal light, which means any no-calorie, no caffeine liquid you like. chewable vitamins [flintstones, centrum; don't be a hero and try to swallow the pills!]. a calcium supplement that's not a horse pill and that doesn't make you gag. and you can' t take calcium carbonate because you won't absorb it very well. there are some liquid calciums that don't taste TOO terrible, and i've found a crystalline calcium that i mix into my protein drinks
[note to self: buy peachie some before her surgery].
SF chocolate pudding [hey!!! it's one way to get milk and protein in!]
