Oh Everyone. my husband is starting to deteriorate. He is eating less and sleeping more. I am desperately trying to get him more engaged in the world to no avail. He went through a period where it seemed he was stabilizing and then this. He is beginning to have trouble swallowing. The food just sits in his mouth and he falls asleep. He was adamant from the beginning that he does not want a feeding tube so I am really upset about all of this. He is eating less and less and retreating more and more and I do not know how to stop it. I hate this disease.
