    Denise, first step would be to ask Stephen's doctor to prescribe enteral nutritional feeds for him (the actual product names may be different in Portugal) or, if he saw a dietitian, they should have input - Stephen 'should have' a target for both daily calorie and fluid intake.

    If enteral feeds are not prescribed in Portugal, you should get advice from a dietitian before buying anything and sports type protein drinks are *not* nutritionally complete, which is why he needs specialist products.

    How is he feeling today?

    Love Ellie.

    Any advice on the protein drinks that go through feeding tube. Looks like we have to buy them here. Weve been given 1 nestle freebie. Anyone have a preference I'd love to hear about it. ☺

    Relieved to hear Stephen is home to you Denise.

    Hope he (and you!) get a good sleep tonight and his tummy settles down.

    Love Ellie.

    He's home now. He seems ok but tired and his stomach is upset. Thanks for asking Ellie. Xxxx

    Things are still quite relaxed here but I live in a village in the mountains. My kids have to self isolate when they get back. Not sure why no one here has ever been sick.
    I feel for you guys. It can't be much fun. The rules seem to change so often I don't see how you can keep up with it.
    I hope things improve especially with Christmas coming. I have a feeling we won't get to see our family as they won't have enough holiday left for self isolating afterwards.

    Even better. I feel so envious of those who are not under local restrictions. We had a few weeks in June and early July when friends could sit in the garden. Since mid-July no visitors allowed (Greater Manchester) has made it tougher than it needed to be coping with this illness.

    My son and his girlfriend are here with two big Labradors so I have very nice company.

    Yes I would rather he stay in and make sure he's ok. It's a long journey if there's a problem. It's very quiet without him 🤔

    Better than him coming home and then getting a high temperature. He's in the best place and I'm sure he'll be back home soon giving you trouble.

    Oh Denise, Such a shame about Stephen's temperature. Hope he feels better and is home soon.

    Look after yourself and have a rest today,
    Love Debbie x

    I gather so. He phoned me but he doesn't care much for using the phone as his hearing isn't very good. I shall find out tomorrow. 🙄
