Default Re: What to take to hospital - suggestions please!

I love logic problems - the grid things - for keeping myself occupied

I definitely agree, now you mention it, on hospitals not being warm enough at night in many cases. The last time I was in was after my caesarian, and who knows, perhaps it was due to being massively anaemic (even though I was too hot during the day) but I was *freezing* at night, and once I'd got extra blankets had to jealously guard them as they kept trying to take them back saying they weren't necessary!

Anyway, thinking of you both and know how glad you'll be to get it over and done with. I'll be thinking of you especially on Monday!
Diagnosed at 15 with 50 curve, but probably juvenile IS. Fused in kyphosis (by non-specialised ortho) with a/p surgery T10-L2 @ 21, posterior only revision surgery to correct kyphosis @ 29. Now 38 with further revision surgery and extension of fusion to sacrum required to correct residual kyphosis, restore lordosis and address spinal stenosis.
