For the hospital scene, I needed to have the figure, a chair for it to sit in, and an IV stand for the chemo.
I found a great quick character rigging demo from Michael Banks, which was helpful because rigging has changed a bit in Maya 2016.
Once that was done, I moved my character into a more natural position with arms down and used a cube with extrusions to model a chair.
I used a cylinder and some extrusions for the pole.
I used a Curve tool to make a shape for the hook, then used a circle shape as the extrusion to give it volume.
I used a Boolean operation to punch a hole through the bag with a cylinder.
Overall I was pretty happy with learning several new techniques like rigging, curves & extrusions and boolean operations for this part of the project.
