For those who have been following my family's journey...yes, my father is still in the facility (despite my mom's guilt of keeping him there). For the last several days, my dad has only been getting feedings of ensure through the PEG. Since I live across an ocean, I'm trying to figure out if this is signaling the time for me to go back home. There's this weight constantly on me, on my heart and mind.
Does anyone have experience with this stage, when the choking on saliva becomes so bad that not even puréed foods is possible/safe? How long are these tube feedings sustainable?
