Stuff my teenage daughter brings: 1.clothes(yoga pants and gamer/goth tee's, flip flops and a pair of Xtrainers for physical therapy. (She absolutely refuses to wear hospital gowns or those booties). 2. Her own blanket/comfoter and pillow ( hates the blankets too.) 3. Laptop, Wii, PS3 and cellphone 4. A powerstrip and chargers for all the above devices. 5 a small suitcase of full of just stuffed animals. 6. A large tube full of duplicate gamer and anime posters, (and some of her own artwork) and "poster putty" so that they can be put up and then removed without getting torn up. 7. Art stuff: sketchbooks, drawing pads, regular and colored pencils, charcols and pastels, erasers and sharpeners, and expensive inking pens that her daddy bought her. 8. 2 or 3 novels and/or anime graphic novels ( aka really long comic books. 9. Normal personal hygine stuff: toothbrush, hair brush, hair scrunchies, shampoo/conditioner and detangler. (her hair is really long. ....AND the most unusual item: 10. A string of christmas lights! She hates when the staff comes in at night and turns on the bright overhead lights, so she has a string of lights above her bed. They give off plenty enough light for the nurses to take vitals, do IV stuff or feeding tube stuff, but she can easily sleep with them on as well. In fact at the hospital she has become known for them. All the staff always love to visit her room in the evening all year round becase the say it's "festive"!
