Slightly concerned that mum is still losing weight. The home are considering putting her onto milkshakes to try to assist with eating. Consequently now whenever I visit I am making sure that I take her out for a nutritious meal. Fortunately she seems relaxed in my company and will eat a reasonable amount, although she finds it tiring. She made a good effort today. Polished off a whole Salmon steak with some new potatoes and green beans, half an apple pie and a small amount of apple juice. Its very hard to get her to hydrate as she will refuse liquids. However, when she eats properly her mood is greatly enhanced and engages with the stroke choir more actively. And enjoys a couple of Oreo chocolate biscuits with a few sips of tea afterwards.
