hi cat,

 actually i have a chair and we have a hand held  shower head but the problem is we have a small shower upstairs and i think i could do it just fine  but my husband don't think it will work. ;D

i am really anxious now.  the hospital just called and changed the time to 11;40 in the morning rather than 6.  we are supposed to be getting an ice storm in the early morning so i think alot of things will be rescheduled or canceled due to this.  by my surgery time, it will be rain so i shouldn't have any problem getting there.
 
  i do have a question though,  how do i move  to post-op diary  after my surgery?  so sorry, i am very new to this.

thank you and i will let everyone know as soon as i can.

Hi Beth,

Just wanted to dorp in and wish you well for tomorrow!  Everything is going to go great!

You can't really "move" to a post-op diary.  You need to start a new topic in the post-op diary section.  Click on the below link and in the right corner is a buton that says new topic.

The shower chair and hand-held are exactly what I use and it works great.

Hi Beth
I will certainly be thinking of you today.  When I had my surgery it seemed like all the nerves were gone by the day of  the surgery and I was just in a fog thinking okay let's get it started.
