    Loss (Lost loved one): It's been five and a half months since my dear husband passed away due to his colon cancer. I am only now able to write a little about this. I am undergoing counseling and meds to help cope with his passing. I look forward to the day when I have energy and drive to move again through life! So many memories - ones that console and ones that continue to hurt. But I used to be a strong woman so I should be able to look at life through happy eyes again. This might sound heartless but in many ways my dear husband had the much easier path than all of his family he left behind. My faith consoles me that I will "see" him again when I pass. That thought is so comforting. And every morning I give thanks to God for a gift of one more day. I miss my husband just so much! Thanks for reading this.

      My mother was in hospice last winter. She couldn't swallow and didn't want a feeding tube. Once she entered hospice, they allowed us to give her some food/drinks. She couldn't have water because it went down the wrong way and choked her. So, we had to give her some thickened orange juice. She still wanted the water, but settled for the juice. Maybe he could tolerate something thicker, like orange juice. But, hospice just wants to make them comfortable. I'm told they don't need nourishment when they are in hospice. It's hard to see them not take anything, but when the body isn't functioning, it can't metabolize anything.

      I'm very sorry to hear this Barb. I don't have experience with it but could they give him something IV for it? When I go to chemo they give me anxiety and anti-nausea medication through the IV
      Check with the doctor to see if they could do something for him that way.
      Sending prayers. God Bless
