Feeling sad for my dad today. He lives with us and has few pleasures left in life, really enjoys his food. His favourites are fish & chips, roast dinner, prawns, omelette , grapes. Now all not allowed as S < appointment confirmed that he is aspirating his food- which we had thought for a while. So now he is on blended mush, and thickened drinks So that's his pub lunches finished, and family Sunday lunches will not be the same if he is eating baby food!
