It is so good to be back in Utah. It was very cold. 20 something degrees in the morning. I am not used to it at all. Oh I packed for it, hat, gloves, scarf! But just the cold coming in from my Mom’s little apartment windows – bbbrrrr.
Mom is convalescing well. She is on a “soft food diet” I had to do an internet search to find out what I can make her. It is also recommend for her type of surgery – bowel resection, to eat very small meals, every 2-3 hours and no fiber until the doctor say ok. Anyhow what I found for eating was:
soggy cereal (she had rice crispys in the hospital)
sauces and gravy and soups
Ice cream and sherbets
foods that have been ran through the blender
Tonight she had bread soaked in milk. It does not sound good to me, but she really liked it. She also had a tiny bit of a Subway sandwich on very soft Italian bread with tuna fish. Nothing else added. She really liked it.
We took a short walk in her beautiful apartment complex. We did not want to over do it.
