From my experience I can add that it seemed too much trouble to look at flowers, read cards, turn over...in fact, about all I could manage was to listen to music on my Walkman (it'd be an iPOD these days I guess), which helped drown out the hospital sounds. (They stuck me in a maternity ward for my cancer-related hysterectomy, so as I lay there in physical and mental distress I was surrounded by new mothers and streams of their jubile visitors.)
I was in for about a week.
Does she have an iPOD, or, if it would help, is there someone who could lend her one? I don't have one (still using the Walkman) plus I'm too far away, but maybe someone back there could help?
