There are many jokes about hospital food, but on Jim's ward it is a "come and get it." Perhaps because so many of them ambulatory, they just put the food cart out and everyone comes and chooses what they want and takes it back to their room.
When you are finished you bus your dishes back to the clean-up cart.
The physical therapist came and encouraged Jim to get up and walk several times a day. Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, so Jim will move to Rise Hospital on Monday morning.
