Great that she is eating more normally now. It sounds like she is also a bit more determined?
She has always been determined, but perhaps not as worried about small details as some of us. I am not sure she shares my view of progress a being a series of small steps. As for food, she has relatively small meals but it is proper food that we all eat, at normal mealtimes, plus a few small snacks.
However, she is not just a passive care receiver - she does contribute to family life, and when I was unable to hold a conversation due to toothache that even Opiate painkillers would not touch she chased the referral.
