The throat evolutionist said my mom needs a feeding tube through the stomach for awhile till it can come out. The throat evolutionist said she exasperates. My mother never had this problem before. But then again she just got out of ICU it's been a week about and she still they said shes having a hard time swallowing. They been trying to give her soft foods for a few days to see if she can. I'm lost and don't know what the right thing to do. She is 87. She looks weak but after what shes been through from nursing home neglect and ICU. I be too. What now? Should I take her home and do it MY WAY. Every time i do she gets better but the only thing too she can't walk and weak right now. Plus she needs 24 hr care right now or put her back again in a Nursing home I'm scared. And scared for her. I am sad to have to put her through any more misery and don't know what to do. Then again doing it there way with the feeding tube might be hard on her might kill her also.
