At some point in the near future, I'll have to be in the hospital for awhile for a surgery.
For awhile, I didn't know if I'd know when I'd have to go. It could've been a sudden thing, & I'd have to go. Looks like now, I'll be able to schedule it.
For safety, I packed a small bag with a few days worth of clothes & a toiletry bag, & other things like chargers & electronics. This way, when I go, I can have someone simply get the bag for me, instead of going through my dresser / closet...and finding...stuff...
I think I'll leave a bag packed like this for a future "just in case" something happens.
I'm not exactly sure where I'll leave this bag. But I really think this'll be a good idea, to stop people from finding stuff while trying to pack a bag for me, if I ever unexpectedly find myself in a hospital.
Might leave it in the closet, with a note; & make sure everything else is far out of sight. I've got a bench at the end of the bed. That could be a good place to put it as well.
I've always been one of those people that likes to be prepared in advance. I always follow the motto of "I'd rather have it, & not need it; than need it, & not have it."
Being prepared has helped me during extreme weather conditions like ice storms & tornados.
