Lunch time and we walk to the cafeteria. He sits with her (she has "helped' him with his IV cart) while me and the boy get food. This time there is chicken with corn and green beans. Enough for everyone! And I pick up a burger (as requested by the patient) and two things of pudding (chocolate and vanilla).
We sit down and eat our food. Everyone has their share, and he enjoys the food even more so (liquid diets are not fun!) I almost forget we are at hospital and not just at some cafe at a museum.
We go back to his room and we turn on television to amuse ourselves in the cramped room. "Sound of Music" is on...she sits on his lap and has a glass of ginger ale with him (they "clink" plastic cups).
We sit and enjoy watching her watch for the first time. (If only there were not commercials...)
We are family. We are happy.
