My dad had colon cancer over 20 years ago and has a colostomy bag. Because of this he has problems with eating. Certain foods that are too gassy give him a lot o pain. Because his teeth are shot from years of medication, he cannot chew very well. I try to make things as soft as I can but he still complains. I've even bought a couple of junior food packages for him to try just to get him to eat vegetables and things are nutritious.
He is an old Eastern European so loves his bread. He likes to eat dry bread with his morning tea or coffee. He says it's so he can take his medicines (about 14 pills a day). He often eats dry bread soaked in coffee or tea for a snack, rather than a piece of cheese or something with protein in it.
Basically he complains about everything I cook. He always had by-pass surgery in 2003 and a pace maker around 2010. He is pretty good at dong things himself, walks around pretty well, takes care of his colostomy and medicines himself. I only need to order them from pharmacy or doctors. He claims he is full all the time (he barely eats) and then complains he's dizzy or lightheaded or whatever and I'm sure (doctors agreed) it's because he doesn't eat properly. I don't know what else to do for him. Any suggestion on how to prepare meals for an old fuss pot with little to no chewing abilities?
BTW - He hasn't yet tried the baby food. I think he feels embarassed, but I don't know what else to do. I did try pulsing everything yesterday. Made chicken livers with mixed vegetables and rice. He ate it, but complained that he can eat liver 'cause it's soft. Maybe he has just become a complainer in his old age, I don't know.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
