    Hi Wailywoo,

    I'm sorry you're having such a difficult time. Please do remember to take care of yourself.

    Regarding your husband's weight, have you had help and advice from a dietician? Have you tried things like adding cream, butter and/or egg to mashed potato and other foods? Or adding cheese to dishes? So, rather than offering something different, you're enriching the foods he does eat.

    Trying to keep positive, but not always managing.

    I am so sorry I haven’t been back on here to respond to your later posts. Hubby was admitted into our local hospital on Wednesday following difficulties with swallowing and not eating for a few days. He was unable to swallow at all and his PEG was rescheduled for 14th October following there being no bed availability on 23rd September.

    I’m afraid he will not be going for that appointment as he past away around noon today following problems with his breathing after being diagnosed with pneumonia. They gave him a nasal gastric tube and were going to give him some nourishment today, but he took a dive and left us. We are all devastated as we weren’t expecting him to go so soon. We had been working hard getting a downstairs bedroom and wet room ready for him to use and he will now never use them. It’s so sad.

    I just wanted to let you know and thank you for all of your support, kind words and useful information.

    Sending love and best wishes to you all.

    Your husband was a lucky man to have you in his life and I'm sorry he was taken away from you so suddenly and brutally.

    Dear Wailywoo,

    I'm so sorry your beloved husband has passed away. He was a very brave gentleman and you always looked after him lovingly, making sure he was made as comfortable as possible. I expect he was very proud of you for everything you did to help and support him, despite all the very difficult challenges you faced due to his ill-health.

    You are a very kind and caring lady and thank you for thoughtfully letting us know about the very sad news today.

    My sincere condolences to you and your family.

    RIP Wailywoo's husband.

    Love to you and your family, Wailywoo,
