Have music and lilies

When I went in for the mastectomy, I took with me a tape recorder because I wanted to listen to nice music in my room. And I think that there's a lot of proof that music and sound has certain healing effects on the body. And I remember that I had very beautiful flowers. If you or anyone else is going to go into the hospital for a mastectomy or lumpectomy, get some lilies in your flowers. It smells up the room, its beautiful. Find some nice tranquil music that you can listen to. It has to be a comforting thing for you to be in the hospital.
