What's in your emergency grab-n-go bag?
I'm assembling a bag of essentials to take with me when my mom or husband are taken to the ER and/or admitted to the hospital. It's happened several times in the past few years, and it took me about an hour to get everything together for a 1-2 week stay in the hospital. The hospital has a pull-out bed for me to sleep and plenty of drawer space for clothes (every room is private). All the comforts of home -- as long as my essentials are with me.
My list includes the "essentials" and additional items to throw in as I leave (checkbook, cell phone charger, etc.)
Do you have such a bag? In addition to the obvious essentials (clothing, cosmetics, hygiene, a little cash, etc.), what are some things I might not think of, or things you wished you had on these occasions? My list is fairly complete but I'm wondering if there's anything else to consider.
Such is the life of the caregiver, eh?
