Lightbulb another post surgery tip

I saw this on an episode of "Judging Amy" , and that is using a baby monitor so that the person who is taking care of you can hear you from another room. My husband is getting a little hard of hearing and ususally has the tv up too loud, also he sleeps soundly, so I plan on getting a monitor before my surgery.

Re: another post surgery tip

Another idea that worked for us... Get a remote battery-operated doorbell that has a plug-in ringer. My husband could take it with him to his workshop and plug it in. I kept the remote control in my pocket to call for him. We used the same set-up for my MIL when she visited several years ago. The only problem was one day when my husband left the ringer in the workshop and he came back inside the house. I was pushing the remote button like crazy and he couldn't hear it, of course.

Re: another post surgery tip

I have a set of the Uniden Walkie-Talkie's (the tiny ones). They are only $20.00 at Wal-Mart. And they can go up to 2 miles, so hubby can work outside, or my family likes to sit out in the backyard by my little pond with the fountain. It's something I can use forever, when he takes his hoveround around the block giving the grandkids a ride, all I have to do is push the button and he can talk to me immediatly, so he doesn't have to rush home or have a heart attack if I yell.
