Morning: The Old Man was still asleep at 11:00, which the staff nurse (the same one as the previous evening) said was to be expected in the context of the pain relief he was being given. She was going to try giving him a meal in the form of mousse.
Evening: The West Indian(?) staff nurse told me that the Old Man had taken six ounces of fluid orally. She was not sure about the mousse.
