    (((Jesse))), yesterday sounds hellish. I am so sorry. I know you are having trouble eating, but are they getting nutrients into you some other way? Are they providing this:

    Hyperalimentation

    Alternate Names

    total parental nutrition
    TPN
    central hyperalimentation
    parental hyperalimentation
    Definition

    Hyperalimentation is a procedure in which nutrients and vitamins are given to a person in liquid form through a vein. It is only given to someone who cannot get nutrients through the intestinal tract.

    Hyperalimentation is used for people with health problems that prevent them from absorbing enough nutrients through their intestines. It is also used when a person is severely malnourished and cannot take in food by mouth.

    A central line is a special intravenous or IV line that is inserted through the chest and threaded into one of the large veins that lie close to the heart. A central line must be used for this procedure because the solution is highly concentrated and would burn the tissues if it leaked out of an IV site, such as in the arm.
    The hyperalimentation solution is tailored to the needs of the individual, and contains:
    glucose, or sugar
    amino acids, the digested form of proteins
    electrolytes, such as potassium and sodium
    vitamins
    fat emulsion

    I know it is awful, but have they suggested a naso-gastric tube?

    You have to get something in your system to fight this. XOXO

    Jesse -- hoping today is much, much better for you. Are there hospice services in Canada? My dad had a cancer that severely affected his swallowing (even saliva) and the hospice doctors were much more effective than the hospital was at making him comfortable and avoiding choking-related problems. They also gave him large doses of anti-anxiety medication, which was also a big help.

    I hope it was a better day today and you felt like watching some skating on YouTuble.

    Hi Jesse, if you manage to catch some of SKAM and Skate Canada, and you want to discuss, just let us know. Wishing you some rest!!!
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    (((hugs)))) from me, too. There are so many of us who wish we could just BE there with you, and virtual being here with you is such a poor substitute. I hope you know that you are not alone and that there in your hometown there are people who can at least come and sit with you, no matter how out of it you are. Praying for peace and that you know how loved you are. And that in spite of all the suffering, you will still feel some measure of peace and joy.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
