ALIF scheduled 18/11/2014

Hi All,
I am currently in the process of mentally and physically preparing for my ALIF surgery on the 18/11.
I am nervous as all hell but also kind of excited. The road ahead sounds hard and long but I feel positive about the future.
I have been to the dentist, booked in for a haircut, bought lots of extra night shirts, cooked a whole bunch of meals to freeze for when I come home, updated my organ donor details, caught up with friends, arranged for people to help my partner out while I am in hospital, bought non slip Nat for the bathroom, in process of ordering a shower stool and toilet frame. Any thoughts on what else I need to prep?!
