How can I make life easier for a long distance friend who is expecting triplets?

A friend of mine is roughly five months pregnant with triplets. She is now on full-time bedrest. I am trying to figure out a way to help her out. She and her husband are living in Seattle and most family and friends are in Eastern Canada. To the best of my knowledge, they have good insurance and excellent doctors. Her husband is as awesome and supportive as they come, so I have no doubt he is doing everything he can to make her comfortable. They have no other children.
So how can I help her out a bit from over 7,000km away? I would welcome gift suggestions, life hacks for preparing for and managing three newborns at once, resources (books, blogs), and advice for transiting from a demanding job (clinical psychologist) and active lifestyle to being bedridden for a few months, etc.
