Hi Grahamstown and Duggies girl - I’ve come home from hospital with a head cold . So I’m a bit slow today - plus our weather is mid winter and very chilly and dull - but Norm has been getting most liquids down. Yeah !! He is on clear food for a week at least - soup (broth) , jelly, milkshakes, icecream - he is hungry too but not desperate as he was before the op. They could not do a stent (not enough muscle) or a balloon ( thought his gullet would rupture) But they dilated the oesophagus a little -15-18mm - and so far he is improving . With better food inside him - he is more spritely - still quite demented- but not worse - sundowning still a B nuisance - I really despair with it - I think for me it’s the worst aspect !! But I did find in hospital - whatever shape he is in, I am unable as yet, to countenance loosing him. Who is Crazy !!! Me I think !!
