SIL starts chemo today - any tips on practical ways / gifts to support her in this time?

She'll probably be pretty tired towards the end of the week so anything practical you can do, housework, childcare if she needs it would help. Her taste buds may also be a bit weird so asking her what sort of food she fancies and get a few bits in. Fresh pineapple juice works for me but everyone's different, and maybe some boiled sweets to get rid of the taste in her mouth Thanks
