Grab and Go Hospital Bag

Yes, the machines at my hospiral are card only. Right pain. The parking machines though still take cash :rofl::rofl::rofl: feel like i’ve bought my own parking space by now :grin::grin:

There’s no room left in my bag but warm socks are a must for me.

@Loshy yes, a nice snuggly pair of slippers … you can’t beat that. A reminder of Home, and it can be cold in some parts of the a hospital … need to keep those feet nice and toastie. The same goes for @Mrs5K warm thermal (if poss) socks … heat from the body escapes out through the feet.

You could also bring some 80’s style leg warmers (men and women! :relaxed:) and some gloves, if you have circulation issues

That leads me onto various ‘supports’ you can buy online, for example:

Hand Warmers (electrical/usb powered)
Feet Warmers (electrical/usb powered)
‘Migraine hat’ … but you’d need to be able to freeze it :cold_face:

You can buy mini fridges online, and sneak them in :smirk::smirk: and then @Rups can have his wine nice and cool :wine_glass: :sweat_smile:

@Loshy …definitely moisturiser as sometimes the heat can be turned right up, drying out your skin.

Looking at the smaller items … I always have an ‘emergency rescue kit’ e.g.,

Olbas Oil … for blocked nose/sinus issues
Rescue Remedy …great for acute stress
Nux Vom……Homeopathy tablets…brilliant for nausea

These are just things I use, I’m not a Professional Health Practitioner!

Yiur sense of humour, tolerance and patience.

3 key elements of coping and managing hospital situations!!!

I was in yesterday having a heart loop recorder fitted ( very sore chest today) but will be grand very soon.

Brought back lots of memories from my 11 week stay earlier in the year,. Some good some not so good and some hilarious

@TRFCANDY53 you reminded me of another essential (well for me) … I only
drink Herbal Teas, so I’d have to have a good stock of those in my Grab and Go Bag!

I love Pukka Brand and they have teas such as Relax, Nighttime, Ginger etc :yellow_heart::orange_heart::blue_heart:

:sparkles:Anne :sparkles:

Ps you could also bring in a travel kettle, sachets of coffee/tea/milk and sugar :sweat_smile::sweat_smile::sweat_smile: Nice and cosy, almost like you’re at Home :thinking::smirk::hugs:
