Hi! I am a week out from my Thumb surgery. I have a list of things I want to have ready for myself. Soap and toothpaste dispensers, watering plants, grooming the dog, getting everything ready for Christmas like baking and wrapping and paper Plates, etc. My question, can anyone tell me anything that make my life easier after surgery that I can do NOW BEFORE my surgery that I haven't thought of???  I sure would appriciate any tips!  Thanks in advance!
