L1043956 my father, at dinner, originally uploaded by Susan NYC.
I try to figure out my father's mood at a meal. Sometimes my presence seems to encourage him to eat a lot; other times he'll say he's so hungry until the food arrives, and then he eats nothing. Some of the nurses won't let me stay in the dining room at dinner time because I'm so critical. The art room is called the "Country Kitchen" and they bring his tray there, to one of the tables. The picture above is in the regular dining room.
