She neither looks good nor feels good. Her life consists of getting from one room to another and endless television watching. Now THAT is depressing .

He pretty much hasn't eaten a vegetable since 1958. "Poor people and peasants have to eat vegetables" He did have a quintuple by-pass 25 years ago. Total cholesteral 112! LDL 50. I've been told to get off his back about diet.
