Lending money to a friend and not getting it back

Over the holidays, I did some Christmas shopping for a sick (housebound) friend who was recovering from surgery and couldn't drive. Bought a bunch of stuff on his list, totaling about $250, brought it to his house etc. I paid at the time and didn't demand money upfront since my friend was sick/out of it. Well, now my friend is fine, back at work and so on, and I'd like to be reimbursed. I brought this up casually twice and both times my friend says sorry, keeps forgetting, will do it via PayPal. Just checked this morning and still nothing. My friend isn't a jerk and has been in my life for years. I honestly think he's just a scatterbrain. But...I need this money. Short of going to his house and watching him type into PayPal, what can I do? I think you DL etiquette mavens might be able to help...
