What can I get my mom, preferably thematic, as she's on bed rest for knee surgery?

She'll be having arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus next Friday. This seems like the most low-key kind of knee surgery, and she's very excited to have confirmation that there's actually something wrong with her knee, since it's been a problem for quite a few months.
She'll be limited to bed rest at home for the 3 days following surgery. She claims to have sufficient tv and books for that period. She's not supposed to use a laptop during recovery but has an ipad she can play with.
My entertainment gift ideas so far are things like Mad Libs or Yes/Know invisible ink books. I'd like to get something knee-related (knitting Kneedles were my first thought, but she's a crocheter and not interested in branching out). Also, I'm not local, so any gifts will have to be mailable or coordinated with a local business.
