The past 4 times I’ve had inpatient EEGS for a week, I would prepack my duffel bag or travel bag , before heading to the hospital. I would bring playing cards, puzzle books with a pen or pencil or both, bring my laptop 💻 or IPad computer , electric games and reading books. I would also bring snacks and pop or juice ( Not Alcohol ). You may want to check with the hospital for those.
