He enjoys an outing

L1037934 an outing, originally uploaded by Susan NYC.
We went to Mt Sinai yesterday for a swallow study and a visit to his "outside" doctor - good field trip. My father usually really enjoys going out.

The swallow study showed that his lungs are clear . He does have swallow problems, but there are things that can be done - change in diet, chin tuck, small bites, etc. Simple enough.

So I've hired a companion who will sit with my father at dinner and take him to the main floor to explore - and he won't have to sit in a row with the other residents, in front of the blasting tv.

They eat dinner at 4:30, so the evening is long.
