What are good things to put in a care package for heart surgery patient ?

What are good things to put in a care package for heart surgery patient? A friend of my fiance and mine is having surgery to repair a hole in her heart and I would like to put something together for her for while she is recovering (books, magazines, movies, etc.). She has two small children and I m sure her husband will be taking care of them while she is recovering. Anyone have any good ideas of what they all might find helpful? I would like to find some things to help her pass the time while she is not sleeping, and maybe something for her husband and the kids. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks all!

That is a very nice idea. Here are some things that may be helpful: Magazines (Parenting, Child, Good Housekeeping, Redbook, Ladies Home Journal) A Journal A nice aromatherapy candle for her hospital room (if they let her light it) A crossword puzzle book A compilation of classic short stories A nice nail file and/or nail kit Postcards for her to send to people Catalogs from Pottery Barn (Those are fun to look through and get decorating ideas from) Scented lotions-as an added touch The "Farmers Alamanac" Book (interesting reading) A Daily Devotional Book A Travel Guide to somewhere she has always wanted to go Hope that helped. Se will just be so appreciative of the fact that you went to such trouble.
