starz98 Posted July 13, 2003 Share Posted July 13, 2003 Hello all, I have tried to keep you updated on my mother. We have been going day to day for quite awhile now. My dad has been doing such a good job and I don't know if he just over tired or what...but he has gone back to the slim fast with mom again. She tells him no and even tried clenching her teeth so he won't give it to her or spitting it out but he forces it on her and is now making her drink a can of it a day, he has also decided that she doesn't need the Roxanol anymore and has stopped giving her that as well, he says she is more alert when she doesn't take it! I tried to explain to him again today that slim fast is loaded with fibers, etc. and that mom has not eaten in over 2 months and lately doesn't even want to drink her lemonade and he is forcing that down her too. Mom tells him no, or sometimes she will drink a little lemonade and then she will say okay and he will say - no you have to finish the whole glass. I don't know what to do, I know that what he is doing isn't good for mom and can actually make her more uncomfortable. It is like all of the sudden he thinks he can make her better. It hurts me to see him doing this to her and when he is forcing the slim fast down her she has even started crying! I don't know what to do and it is tearing me up inside.
