    Great list! Everyone differs in their needs and wants but I needed a full size towel to shower vs using the rough and small hospital towel. Sandals /flip flops for the shower. First time they gave hubby blankets and pillows second time we both ended up wanting our pillows from home (didn’t offer him a pillow but I am sure he could have asked). Both times I use an old pair of slippers that I throw out at the end of the stay and had a nice new pair waiting for me at home, personally I could not use a pair I wore in the hospital in our house.
