Re: I need ideas!

My mother is the one to keep vigil at the hospital. So, I'm thinking of what she'd enjoy while doing what has to be done.

She'd enjoy a book or some magazines, flowers for the room if they are permitted. Some hospital cafeterias have "dining clubs," so a card with a few bucks on it would be good.

Definitely help to cook and cleanup at home where she's neglecting things-- and laundry would be wonderful. We have a few places that make "home cooked" meals for a week or even a month, and deliver them. The people who use them say they are delicious. A gift certificate or even ordering a week of dinner might be good. It's not the same as take out or dining out.

You are a good friend for wanting to do this for her, Kaykay.
