My SIL is having major abdominal surgery next week. She is looking at several days in the hospital and an 8-10 week recovery. We live several states away so I would like to send her a care package of items she might need during her rest and recovery. I've never had major surgery, so not sure where to start. I was thinking of books/magazines, dvds, hand cream, chap stick, slippers, .... Any ideas of other things to include? If you have been in this situation, what did you enjoy or wish you had?
