I just had to share this, because I am amazed! Yesterday I watched Mom eat everything on her plate at lunch. I have never, ever seen her do anything except pick at a few bites and move it around her plate - for the last 10 years - no matter what the food is or how good it is. They tell me she eats all her breakfast and lunch now, and asks for dinner 1/2 hour early. What? Really? After all these years!
I don't know whether it is her age, the change in food or the NH care. It seems she has adjusted to life in the NH (I think she secretly likes all the attention).
A month ago, we didn't think she would live a month, but now, she will be gaining weight and strength and maybe even feel better.
Has anyone else witnessed this phenomena?
