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
1/2 cup ice cubes
