@soontobemrsm11:  Has he rented a tv? Is there such a service available in the hospital in which he is a patient? Watching TV is something that would help pass the time.

Would he like any magazines or books? As PP suggested, something to pass the time would be nice. I’ve spent some time in the hospital and it’s sooo boring. Or movies if he has something to watch them on?

Audio books or a radio. He might still appreciate a potted plant to brighten his room up a bit…maybe some magazines?

Adding a vote for things to help him pass the time, especially if he’s in severe chronic pain that breaks through his medication.  I worked in a hospital for years, and all the patients have to do is sleep and suffer from boredom.  If his pain is making sleep difficult, anything to break the monotony (books, TV, handheld games, etc) will be a blessing.

Flowers or reading material are good suggestions.  Not sure where you read that about teddy bears but I have never seen a grown man with a teddy bear, business trip or not.

@soontobemrsm11:  My FIL is sick and I was thinking about getting him some word search books.
