Dan usually doesn’t have much trouble with choking or coughing during the day as long as he uses a straw, but he is coughing several times at night. Oddly, he seems to cough more when the bed is elevated too much. I always worry that he’s getting sick, but during the day he’s been OK. I worry that perhaps he beginning to have problems with saliva . Any experience with this .
I try hard to encourage him to drink, but usually only get him to drink 24-32 ounces . He gets a little extra from the food he eats. Is that way too low.
Thanks so much for all of your help . It is so nice to have somewhere to turn. Today the hospital bed comes and he will be downstairs in the living room with a video monitor. I wish we had an alternative, but life has become such a struggle . Never a dull moment with PSP.
