My 75 year old father will be hospitalized for heart surgery in early January. Luckily, his doctors feel that this will be an uneventful procedure and he will make a full recovery. He will probably be in the hospital for about a week after the surgery.
My family has been blessed with excellent health and none of us has ever been hospitalized before. What are some things that he's likely to forget to bring with him when he's admitted? Basic items, or items to keep him occupied when he begins to feel better after the surgery? He's normally pretty active--not really a TV watcher. Any suggestions or hints are appreciated!
