hi my stepsister has been in hospital for four week, is 26 weeks preg tommorow and will be in until she has her baby (long story).
She is so bored bless her, doesn't want to read baby books for the obvious reason. anyone got any suggestions of what i can take her to 'do'? she has suduko, crosswords and crossstitch but what else is hospital friendly?
iPod or similar cheaper mp3 player with a radio - rip her favourite cds to it plus some audio books (borrow some from lib as jamiesam suggests).
Or just library books and keep going to swap them for her - or just novels of yours she hasn't read. It's the constant swapping that's key.
Oh, and if she can't knit, now's a good time to learn - bonus baby clothes as a result too.
My sister was laid up for three weeks after a hip op - we bought her a secondhand Playstation from Cash Converters, and a couple of simple games. Went down a storm, esp the racing ones, and you can rent games from eg blockbuster. She did have a private room though - not sure how well a ward would have taken it...
Laptop def worth a go - even if she can't get online, she could at least watch dvds in bed.
