Yes, Beth Israel gave me the heart pillow to hug when I cough, sneeze or laugh. Very helpful and rather sweet. Good luck with your surgery. You'll do fine. I was surprised how it wasn't half as bad as I had anticipated the past two years. The trick is not to get nervous, scared or anything. Just relax and know you are in good hands. I also wrote a script for my anathesialotist team to read to me during and at the end of the surgery with positive affirmations about how I would heal well, how I would not require much medication, that I would awake hungry, thirsty and easily urinate. And had them repeat them five times each. Guess what? It all came true. Just visualize beautiful, happy places and picture a person or pet you feel love for. It's amazing how it really does work.
