Rhett stayed in nursing house and his great grandson visited him.

He was measuring out the last years of his life—maybe down to months now, considering the blood that had started to show up in the bowl when he took a ****—not in coffee spoons but in coverall games.

What's the meaning the underlined ? Thank you.
