Ben eats like a wolverine. He samples everything. He's so happy to be eating. He's so excited that food tastes good and isn't hurting.
I eat beside him. I'm quiet.
You're too tired, he says. You're doing too much. Don't come here tomorrow. My eyes fill up with tears and I stammer, 'But I want to see you every day.'
He's extra affectionate with me tonight. He hugs me again and says, Soon, you will see me every day at home. I want to see you every day, too.
