I talked to Dad tonight. He sounds terrible. His doctor visit was fairly straightforward. If Dad loses anymore weight he will have to get another feeding tube. Dad weighed 215 when he started this process. He now weighs 186. He says it is like his throat is on fire when he tries to eat. I begged Dad to do his best to ingest 4-5 cans of Ensure a day. He is going to try. His next appointment is Tuesday the 31st at 3pm.
