I would take a housekeeper as a push present. Someone to come in once a week and clean for a few hours!!!
I would take one of those too.
I think excpeting expensive gifts is weird too. I did get a few gifts, but nothing major. DH got me a stuff animal, and some flowers, and fast food so I wouldn't have to eat that god awful hospital stuff they pass as food.
And with Korbin he also stayed the night in the hospital with me, in the most uncomfortable chair ever, because I confessed I was extremely lonely when he went home at night when I had Kade. With Kade we had just gotten a new puppy, and we didn't think it was a good idea to leave her alone so much so soon. Just him staying with me that time was the best gift ever.
