수술영어일기 – 장모의 백내장

 시어머니가 최근 백내장 수술을 받으셨다. 그 때문에 아직 회복되지 않은 상태에서 흐릿하게 보인다는 것이다.회복에는 1주일에서 10일 걸린다고 한다.시어머니는 혼자 살아서 당분간 식사를 해야 한다.다만 엄마가 이가 좋지 않아서 딱딱한 음식은 잘 먹지 못한다.김치도 못 드시니까 믹서에 죽처럼 갈아서 드신다.부드러운 요리를 해야 되는데 나는 요리를 잘 못해.그래서 즉석요리를 검색해 봤는데 볶음밥의 종류는 많지만 진한 음식은 많지 않았다.다이어트식 등 젊은 사람들을 식단은 많지만 노인들을 위한 식단이 이렇게 적을 줄은 몰랐다.계속 찾아봐야겠다
