Recovery from laparoscopic esophagectomy surgery, and the transition from hospital to home care, was made easier and more comfortable because of a few significant preparations I made prior to the surgery — BEDROOM arrangements including equipment, bed, and layout; BATHROOM arrangements and equipment; CAREGIVER arrangements and instructions regarding nutrition requirements and meds; a means to access FUNDS, if needed; a 9”x12” envelope with KEYS and LEGAL documents like Wills and Powers of Attorney, if needed; and NOTICES to family and friends.
