My father has been struggling with kidney problems for years and is starting dialysis this week. This means he’ll have to make some changes in his diet. The other day I overheard this conversation while my parents where looking over his dietary guideline.
My mom: This says you’ll have to eat more protein.
My father: Protein?
My mother: Yeah, you should try to eat protein with every meal.
My father: Does that mean I can eat more pie?
