Can anyone give me advice on how to prepare for transplant. My husband is listed and I feel like for me, organising things and getting ready goes a long way towards feeling emotionally prepared for it. I guess I might be a bit of a control freak, so I hate not knowing when and how everything will happen. I've heard folks say about having a bag ready- but what will he need to pack? Or is there no point taking anything until he is out of intensive care? I'm thinking phone charger, toothbrush etc. The leaflet says not to take anything with you initially as they don't have anywhere to keep your stuff but I can't imagine him being too sick to use his phone- am I wrong?
Also, im thinking of investing in a reclining armchair for when he recovers so that he can rest downstairs and be with the family more. Hope someone thats experienced the surgery can advise me if this will be a waste of money or not?
