My friend just had cataract surgery and needs to either lie on her back or sit up at a 45 degree angle for a few weeks. Yikes! What can she do to keep entertained? Right now, she's only allowed out of bed for a few minutes a few times a day to eat meals, etc. Other than that's she stuck. So, bed-bound flat on her back and can't see. I've already thought of podcasts/books on tape/music/books from the national library for the blind. She has a computer with JAWS software (a screen reader) and access to the internet. Oh, I also told her to remember to move around in bed to prevent a DVT. I'm on the other side of the country so I can't go visit in person. Any suggestions are welcome.
