If you have a thermos, or empty jar with a lid, fill it with hot homemade chicken soup. You can make a little basket with a good loaf of bread, tea, lemon and honey, and various forms of medicine you know they need/like. Since they'll be spending time resting, you might add magazines or a good movie or favorite book. Just make sure to let them know if these are on loan, and label anything you need returned :)
Sometime soon I hope to share our favorite "go-to" recipe for chicken vegetable soup. It's an easy dinner for a cold winter's night.
