Since Nov last year she has literally starved herself and has lost around 5 stones in weight. She's pitifully thin and gets really confused as she refuses to drink much as well. I look after her at home and its now becoming difficult as we work full time but we have carers in, we refuse to put her in a home. She also has Chronic Kidney Disease and has Arterial Fibulation. How long can this go on for its pitiful watching her. This is destroying my Husband.
Most nutritional drinks which others recommend are likely out with kidney disease. They are mostly protein and most sufferers of kidney disease are on protein limited diets. Though it is doubtful your MIL will take enough to make much difference one way or another.
She has started to have falls these last few days as she's so weak.
I think the Dr has her on some sort of pathway as she has brought a letter stating that if she were to end up in hospital then to treat and send her back home where she is comfortable and in an environment where she knows, although she is always asking to go home .
My husband still would not eat anything, They finally told him if he didn't try to eat something, he would have to get a feeding tube. Thankfully, he agreed to do the ensure.
My grandmother was in the nursing home and she just stopped eating. The doctor called and told my dad he would need to put a feeding tube in his mom.
I hope you can get her the help she needs. Bless you and your husband's heart.
