help- what to give someone in hospital

Hi, I need your help. My cousin's wife's 9 year old son was diagnosed with leukemia. I want to help. What do people who are spending a long time in the hospital enjoy as gifts (for both mom or and son)

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

How about a hand held video game? Kids love those and it will help keep him occupied during his hospitalizations.

Re: help- what to give someone in hospital

Video games are good, but one of the best gifts my daughter got while in the hospital for leukemia was a Kodak Easy Share camera with the printer. They go for about $130.00. She had lots of fun snapping pictures of mom & dad and the nurses and then hung them all over the walls. With each admission, this came with us.

Good luck

How about a portable DVD player and some movies?

I have a most excellent idea---one that will bring humor, education, and creativity to everyone in the room! Not to mention I absolutely adored it at age 9 and still do: MADLIBS. Are you familiar with MadLibs?
