What do you do when someone in your family's in the hospital?

Report as

Set up a visitation calendar with other family members so that they have a visitor every day. If phone calls are possible, do that too. Help them stay in touch with the outside world: newspaper, family updates.
Keep them active (according to their abilities): books to read, puzzles, magazines, etc. Bring in some regular food (if allowed).

Visit, visit, visit. Tell them you love them. Take them something they might find useful/enjoy in bed all day. That what I do. Unless they are giving birth, or just getting thier appendix out. Then I usually leave the love part out.

visit them as long as you can and just treat them like you would if they weren't in the hospital, I'm sure they don't want you saying how bad you feel for them, they probably just want you to have a normal conversation with them and make them laugh, I know that's what I would want

I go and see that person as much as I can because I don't want to go through what I did when my Memall died and I couldn't see her before she passed. The last time I had seen her before she passed we got in a huge argument and I told her that I would be happy if I never seen her again and I still feel like a jacka** about it. :(

Visit them as much as you can, and bring something they love like flowers, chocolates, comic books every time you go. That's what I do....
