Morning meal

It changes with time and circumstances

My Dad continues to have minimal appetite and decreased ability to swallow. It is a continual uphill climb to nourish him. Some people ask me why I try. I don’t know how not to try.

It is with great satisfaction I sit by his bed as he sips a morning smoothie concocted “on the fly.”

He tells me he is proud he can hold the cup.

This smoothie consists of:

1 packet Carnation Instant Breakfast

1 cup almond milk

1 banana

1/2 cup ice cubes

2 prunes
