Best of luck

I took my laptop and I don't think I needed it there is a business centre on the 2nd floor of the hotel for all guests to use for free. I did use my laptop though before my procedure as I wasn't feeling very well. make sure you take larger clothes because of the breakfast there for you. LOL! Take your cell phone only if you are willing to spend the millions it would cost to use it there. Not sure if you can alter your contract for cheaper use in Europe. Take double the money and half the clothes. My bank suggested I use my visa card as it is more secure than a bank card. You need Zloty, my bank ordered some in for me. 34 canadian dollars is 100 Zloty. A nice meal at an expensive restaurant is about 40 Zloty. I would take 1000 Zloty cash with me. I only took 500 but I did do site seeing after my procedure. I could have left the 1st but I stayed in Krakow from the 1st to the 4th. I was much better post procedure so I was glad I waited till after to site see. Just go with no worries and the knowledge that this is it!
Well, I've been back from Katowice for two days now. My feet and hands were nice and warm initially, but aren't so warm anymore. But on the plus side, I didn't use my wheelchair at all yesterday and used a walker instead. I've been dependant on a wheelchair for a whole year now, but my core stability and leg strength has improved dramatically so it was bye-bye wheelchair Hope it lasts this time. Only angioplasty again.....
Regarding the mobile phone - can I just buy a SIM card for my phone in Poland? You can in most of the European cities.
