Preparing for hospital

My preparations so far:

A big pile of books by my bed. For convalescence. I’m only going to be in for 2 days, after all.

A whole stock of stuff on the kindle. 2 days is a lot of reading.

Unscented shower gel for my unscented shower on the morning of the op.

Swim in the sea on Sunday evening, because who knows when I’ll be able to do that again? If not this week, it will be a couple of months.

And that’s it so far. I have my pre-op assessment tomorrow & I will get to see the lovely Sandra & revise reconstructions. That is the bit that makes it a big (ish) op, but I think it will be worth it.


I will be a lady of leisure until the autumn. No swimming, no cycling, no running. I will be very sensible. I will be fine.

About sarahsouthwest

I'm now in my early 50s. I started writing again as a way of exploring the world, and feel that over the last 2 years I have really grown as a writer. By day I work with children and young people with mental health difficulties. I juggle my own two children, my work, my writing practice, generally managing to keep all the balls up in the air.
