It will get easier. Always ask alot of questions. If your not happy with your answer ask for social worker to help you. I know this is tough. I am still going through this with my husband. Each day you will get closer to the next . Stay strong and positive, It is so hard to watch believe me I know. I feel for you and your husband. I will keep you in my prayers. I will always be here for all. God Bless.

Larry has terrible issues with swallowing. It was easier for him to swallow mushy food than liquids. He was finally dilated 2 days ago, however he can already find it getting difficult again. It is a learning process as well. Hopefully this will improve with time. Prayers.
