I have been fighting PSP for a long time now. Refusing to bow, when things have got hard, until matters have forced me.
As some of you know, last weekend I was "forced" yet again, to kneel before, this horrible master and start puréeing all S's food and thicken all drinks.
The result.... S is eating better than he has done for a good couple of years and so much quicker. Is now enjoying his morning coffee, I can't even began to remember the last time he drank it, although I dutifully make him one, every morning. Needless to say, his bowels are a lot better, although that might be the dynamite the DN's have given him. Is actually saying he is has enjoyed a meal, the sounds of approval, while eating, is great!
The excitement this morning in the supermarket, when I asked him what desserts he fancied, now I am actively looking at the calories chart to get the highest, instead of the lowest.
Oh the wasted hours, trying to get him to eat, the stress and the tears. I thought I was saving him from the final kick in the teeth, forced to eat baby food, but he is thriving on it!!!
So from being really upset and dreading the fuss of puréeing all meals, it's suddenly a pleasure to prepare his meals again, worth the extra time it takes. The dishwasher working a bit harder, my stomach and eyes aren't happy bunnies, with all these goodies in the house, hey ho, small price to pay. May save us having to make the peg decision just yet!!!
Don't worry I am ducking, no doubt something else is about to bite me!
Lots of love
