Unhappy Sick Friends Baby . . .

Hi all,
One of my dearest friends baby is in our Children's Hospital out here. She developed severe face swelling & body rash this past week and the rash started turning purple. The doctors have "narrowed" it down to 3 things: Severe allergic reaction, Viral Mono, or Steven Johnson Disease. They are right now leaning on the Viral Mono side and if you could spare some prayers, I am sure they would appreciate it!
All of us gf's want to send them a basket to the hosptial to help them get through this. They have no clue when this will be because they cannot draw blood right now (she's so swollen they cannot find veins and when they do they collapse) so they are most likely going to be in there riding out this virus. What items would you put in a basket for them? E is 18 months old so I do want to get some things for her but what should we through in for the Mommy & Daddy to help with this time? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
