Meals for someone coming home from hospital

amanda3571 | Feb 28, 2008 04:42 AM

My SO's mother has been in the hospital and has had 2 partial colectomies (colon removal) in the last week. I'd like to have some meals waiting for her in her freezer when she gets home. She's in a lot of pain so I want her to do nothing more than hit the buttons on the microwave and eat.

The meals have got to be really really easy on her tummy so I'm thinking not too many veggies, nothing too acidic, not too much dairy....so basically I'm stumped.

I was going to make a big pot of some chicken rice soup and freeze in individual portions, have some bananas for snacks, peppermint or ginger tea to help with the nausea....maybe something with egg noodles?

I know shes going to have a hard time eating for a while, but I am really stumped on what else I can leave for food. Anyone been through or done something similar?

Thanks in advance for any advice & help.
