    Kind of memory foam? Surgery Aug 8, Lord willing, w/ Dr. Lenke.Also, other questions

    Should I get twin size for the motel stay as well as king size for home? How thick? What brand? From where? All you Lenke-patients: what else do I need besides the scoliosis kit that they give you? I have the raised toilet seat and a shower stool, but that's all so far. I would really appreciate your help. My surgery changed from January, 2013 to next month! (assuming pre-op goes well).Does it usually? I don't want to take anything for granted! Also, would appreciate advice about where my husband should stay during the surgery week and afterwards. So far I've heard Parkway Hotel and Barnes Lodge. Any other ideas?

    Parkway hotel

    Hi Amelot,
    When I had my surgery last year, my husband stayed at the Parkway Hotel during my entire hospital stay. It was so convenient for him to just walk over to the hospital without the hassle of traffic. Plus the $5/day parking is reasonable too. Just be sure to mention that you will be a patient at Barnes and they will give you that affiliation rate. Best of luck to you!

    I bought and borrowed extra "grabbers" and had one in almost every room. We live close to St. Louis so I can't help you as far as recommendations of places for your husband to stay. I have heard that people are happy with the Parkway Hotel. Good luck! Dr. Lenke is my hero!
