Hello, I'm a caretaker for my 81 yr. old uncle who was diagnosed yesterday with stage 4 lung cancer. He was told he has 6 months to live if he doesn't die before that from pneumonia. He is ok with this. He has had an extremely full life. We are simply looking for ways to make his remaining time as comfortable as possible. He can taste almost nothing. Interestingly, what he CAN taste has quite bland flavors (e.g. vanilla ice cream & Ensure, canned peaches, clam chowder). Can anyone help me with ideas of what might have some taste for him? I do understand that this issue may vary per patient. This is my first post. Please forgive me if this topic has been raised before. I looked through the forum with the tags written above, but didn't find anything. Thank you, Lisa
