Any medical type people able to offer insight? Is this a long term sustainable thing? The nurses in the hospital seemed shocked. We are trying to work out what we should do in terms of planning. Obviously plans for her will be different if it's likely a matter of weeks or months vs potentially years. The thing that gets me is that they say medically she is "fine". How can you possibly be medically fine at 23kg?!!
I'm sorry to hear that
Is she in a nursing home or at home?
She is currently in hospital as she had knee surgery but otherwise she is at home by herself. I work in very high care disability and when someone is under weight, there are things like Ensure puddings and drinks that you can order from the chemist. Aparently they are quite nice, but nan wont have them. Other than the knee, she is quite well, very with it, so hopefully will be like the durocell bunny
