    Definitely buy what you want to make the hospital stay as 'easy' as it can be.
    Completely agree, and it CAN be moneysaving! I am still using many of the things I bought for my brain surgery: pink stripey sponge bag, even my pink pyjamas ...

    Take a bottle of fruit squash with you to make the drinking water palatable.

    Good idea, so easy to get dehydrated. I realised today that since leaving hospital last week I seem to have dropped a dress size. I know that isn't a good sign but I have no appetite so I'm not eating much. Walked round Sainsbury's with my daughter today and there wasn't one thing I fancied. I am on a low fibre diet at the moment so I can't even enjoy breakfast, I normally like Shredded Wheat, well the Aldi version, with an apple chopped up on it and a handful of nuts and skimmed milk, the only bit I can have now is the skimmed milk.

    Tonight I had some haddock with new potatoes and peas and I did manage a small portion. I also saw the specialist nurse to follow up on what was done in hospital last week, she was lovely and said I was a perfect patient! Back to hospital next Thursday and she went through all that.

    I am OK but just feel so tired so I think it is an early night for me.

    Thanks for the support.

    Dear Mumps I will keep you in my prayers. Glad you are staying positive, and what a lovely supportive family and health care professionals you have! Treat yourself to all the new stuff you want, to make life more pleasant, you deserve it!
    Finally I'm an OAP and can travel free (in London at least!).

    Mumps, even on a low fibre diet you should be able to eat eggs. Very nutritious, easy to cook, high protein. We have an egg in some form most breakfast-times.

    I did have eggs yesterday and I have a guilty confession, I had a big mug of drinking chocolate with whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate sprinkles. I keep them for when the grandchildren stay and I think it must have had about a million calories :T Not very healthy but hey if I can't indulge myself now when can I?
