Whatcha Packing?  

I know there are several threads about what People Have Packed…What They Didn’t Need…but they go away so fast. By the time I go to start writing them down they are gone. So I thought I would start a thread for us Fabulous MaySurgers. Even if you cut and copy someone’s ideas that you see. Anything is helpful. I just know that I am swamped at work and by the time I go back to find it it’s gone.  

So what’s in your suitcase?

Chap stick
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
I will wear a casual loose fitting dress to make for the ride home
Deodorant (cause I am not sure I can stand me if I don't get to take a shower)
I had my pre-op visit today and I need to take my Asthma inhalers (that was new to me)
pillow for ride home

I am sure there is more but that is what I can think about now, I still have time to think of more and can look at this post later with more ideas




40 lbs lost pre-op
