Being in the hospital for nearly 3 months has been a special kind of quarantine experience. The hospital only allows one parent to visit at a time, and you have to have daily screening/temperature checks, as well as wear a mask anytime you leave your room. It has definitely been very isolating and tough, so I’ve tried to bring as many comforts from home as I can to get Evan and I through!
Cozy Loungewear Set
This set is so soft, cozy, and affordable! You could definitely sleep in it, but it looks pulled together enough to wear out. I’ve been wearing mine here in the hospital a ton!
Comfortable Yet Stylish Joggers
I love these so much I bought 3 colors. They are fitted but still super comfortable and soft.
I wanted a few basic bralettes that would be soft and comfortable. I ordered this in 2 colors and I’ve been loving them so far.
I wanted a pair of slippers I could toss after our few months in the hospital. These look like Uggs but at a tiny fraction of the price.
This spray helps us get a good night’s sleep (which is no easy feat in the hospital!), plus it makes our room smell so nice
Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
With the constant hand washing these days, a good hand cream is in order. One of my friends gave this to me and I absolutely love it.
There’s nothing like a good book to pass the time. I found the Elizabeth Holmes documentary so fascinating that I decided to read the book too. It’s incredibly well written and a total page turner.
My hair isn’t getting much love these days, and who knows when I’ll be able to make it to the salon again. In the meantime, this 8 second treatment is a nice (and quick!) conditioning treatment.
Le Creuset Dutch Oven
Okay I haven’t actually used this one yet being in the hospital, but my family gifted me this Dutch oven for Mother’s Day which has been on my wishlist for ages. And Le Creuset just happens to be having a sale which literally NEVER happens. I can’t wait to go home and cook all of our quarantine meals in this.
I’ve been documenting Evan’s recovery journey in photos and I also plan to spend a lot more time practicing photography when I get home. It’s such a fun hobby for me, and I think having a hobby during this stressful time is so important.
Evan is loving all things cheery and cozy, and he is obsessed with Minecraft. One of his therapists gifted him this cozy blanket and the Easter bunny brought him the fun matching pillow!
This 3 pack of joggers is a steal and Evan’s therapists are always commenting on how soft they are (and they all wanted to know where to get them for their own kids!).
Evan was given a few of these at the hospital and he loves them. They are a great little fidget toy.
Cole got this board game in his Easter basket, and we got to play it together a few times before Evan and I left for Utah. Board games can be hit or miss with Cole, but he really loves this one (and it’s even pretty fun for grownups!).
When Evan isn’t in therapy, there isn’t a whole lot to do since most of the hospital activities are closed up right now due to Covid. So we’ve been on a movie marathon and are making our way through the whole Disney catalogue!
