Daddy also lost a LOT of weight at the end of his life. He simply could not swallow anything. He had a living will (something you should know about your dad) and it specifically stated that he did not want any outside measures to keep him alive, ie: feeding tubes, IV's etc. Of course that was hard, but it's what he chose. If your father has not made clear his wishes, you have to make them for him. For sure take him to an ER for an assessment. And good luck--I know this post sounds like I am saying he's dying and that wasn't my intent. Just, you need to be prepared to hear some things from drs that you may not like. 90 is a ripe old age....and he doesn't sound as if he's really enjoying life much.
sweet it made me cry. I promised myself I would take one day to myself and I did it!
