He may not be the type to outwardly express it like us gals, but do not misjudge!
He is sincerely happy to see you.
I carried with me a Victoria’s Secret duffle bag, which was more than enough space with the extra clothes I brought and didn’t need (multiple pairs of jean shorts)and cost $20 something with a sale or coupon and was soo cute, light, and easy to carry for the trip!
Here is what you may consider packing for your trip:
for four hours of care immediately post-surgery, including one ride back after surgery to your place of stay
*$150 for three taxi rides
One on the way to surgery and two rides for one follow up appointment with Dr. Lee. You can pay with a card, but I would advise against it.
*Stay at a hotel that offers free shuttle rides to and from the airport to save $$ on more taxi rides OR stay at
Dr. Lee’s apartment
he offers to his patients for a small cleaning fee and bring
extra $$ for two additional taxi rides
to and from the airport. Book as soon as you know you’re able to go see Dr. Lee for a better chance of reserving your spot at the apartment!
~$120 for Medication
from Dr. Lee which may include an antibiotic and a pain reliever.
$X for Food, room service,
take-out orders (I totally forgot about that!) and the vending machine for
Dr. Lee’s waiver forms read and signed by you
Directions from the airport to your place of stay.
Reverse directions from your place of stay to the airport
Directions from your place of stay to Dr. Lee’s office. Be sure both addresses are printed.
Reverse directions from Dr. Lee’s office to your place of stay. Be sure both addresses are printed since you will be blindfolded.
A list of restaurants that deliver to your place of stay
It will be easier to drink. Leave them out so the nurse can find em.
to clean your stitches if needed
Use with hydrogen peroxide to clean your stitches (if needed) and to apply Vaseline.
I really like the ones called Purity by Philosophy. They have em at Ulta and Sephora.
Zip-up tops– For surgery and lounging around
Comfy clothes– To lounge around in. The last thing I felt like wearing was anything tight! You want to feel easy and comfortable so you can relax. Move slowly and carefully so you heal nicely and preserve your surgery results. No sudden muscle movements!
Hot/Cold gel pack– Post surgery usage
Food for your hotel such as dry snacks
~Avoid: Heavy electronic equipment such as computers and iPads. I tried to work, but my eyes were tired so fast, even from watching TV. Fully focus on letting your eyes heal. Straining them will delay healing and stress your eyes and your body out.
… and last but not least, your normal bathroom items, minus the eye goo yey!
