pajamas. and something to keep you busy. I'd eat a normal diet unless your doctor suggests otherwise. How many days will you be in the hospital?

I've never had an overnight, even with my y-v flap. If I have a house flap in the next few weeks I'll probably insist on a hospital stay at least so that they can make sure that it doesn't move after my first few BMs.
