I cannot believe that eating food has come to this.
First visit to my GI Dr last Thurs (Sept. 23)
after he did an emergency Endoscopy (tube down my throat with a camera)
(requested by my ER Dr)
My GI DR said I needed to do certain things or
I will have a feeding tube.
I have lost 15 pounds so far, in the last few weeks
Working hard to keep up my strength,
and avoid a feeding tube
and following my GI Drs instructions
Thank God for my husband, son and friends.
I have been eating this soup, so pureed it for lunch for a few days now
and it is working ok along with Ensure and water with Electrolytes
and the meds my GI Dr changed and added.
This is a little chicken broth, water,
cooked boneless skinless chicken breast,
carrots and rice
We already owned a mini puree machine, so one serving at a time
Dinner last night was steamed and skinned red potatoes
and boneless skinless chicken breast
with some of the water from steaming the potatoes then pureed (delicious)
Breakfast has been a small portion of Cream of Wheat or Oatmeal
Need to add some crushed Bran flakes, so will do that tomorrow.
I am so grateful for my family and friends
and it seems finally a Dr that is there to get me through this
On our own for this to come together until the Insurance approves a Nutritionist
One day at a time
