Surgery during covid19 First topic

I have a mass in my pancreas. My surgery was postponed a month ago because the ORs were closed for covid.
I'll have surgery next week if my covid19 test (scheduled soon) is negative and I have no symptoms.

My husband won't be able to visit me in the hospital. We've been married almost 40 years. Because of his age and as a cancer survivor, it's too risky for him. The mass has grown, though it's still small. They did find pancreatic cancer markers from my biopsy. So they consider my surgery urgent. I'll be hospitalized anywhere from 5-10 days. I won't know how extensive it'll be until they go inside and look.

I'll miss my hubby, cat, and cell phone. Although the room has a phone. It might sound weird but I was thinking about bringing a stuffed animal for my normal "cat space" along with books.

Suggestions for what else I might bring?

Villians of the virus

Excellent editorial in the Daily Beast about those profiteers from death.
