The nurse comes in the room. She provides mom with her medicine. Mom asks what is this? I haven't taken this before. It is comforting to hear this. She knows what is going on. She is aware of what she is supposed to be taking.
It's a liquid. It's brown. And the nurse tells her that it tastes just like strawberries and cream. She informs mom that it is a protein drink that will help build muscle. It sounds like a good thing. She needs more muscle.
She takes a sip of the liquid. I can tell by the squished look on her face that it doesn't taste like strawberries and cream. In fact it probably tastes quite awful. I feel bad that she has to take something that tastes so awful just to gain some strength.
