It sounds like you are very prepared to me. I hope things go well. It can be a real experience staying with a LO who has dementia in the hospital. You probably already know. No matter how much you tell staff and doctors, most don't really get it. They don't realize that telling a person with dementia to not pull out IV or touch this or that means little. Or, that she may try to get out of bed unassisted. I know you won't get much rest. I'd arrange for someone to come sit with her after you get home, so you can take a nap then. Best wishes on the procedure. I hope it helps her.

A small blanket or shawl to go around her shoulders or to use as and extra blanket in case it is cold.
A neck pillow - those hospital pillows are not the nicest.
They'll probably want her up walking before she leaves, so some nice slippers with grippy soles.
