This is one time PF need all the nutrition she can get. And Shrek is unlikely the best cook to feed her all the nutrients. Peeling veggies, preparing the meats, and all the rest that goes into fixing a balanced meal can be more than a recovering surgical patient can handle. And today she gets her staples removed. So she is far from being healed enough to do some serious cooking.
The doctors encourage walking. But how much can you do in an apartment. She said that Shrek was going to take her to the mall so she could do some walking. The kind that would be beneficial to her healing. Providing they can get there, the malls will be filled today with elderly who take their daily walks there in the cold weather. No ice or cold wind to contend with. Much safer than walking outside.
Unfortunately, they are now building shopping malls that do not have central walkways inside. It is mostly to discourage teens from using it as a hangout place to go to. We have three new ones that have been razed to the ground and rebuilt with this in mind. A death knell for the elderly walking on a daily basis.
