I started to puree her Wellness can food - and I started to add pureed low-sodium canned tuna. She is eating again - initially she did not like the milk-shake like texture, but now she is figuring out that this food does not hurt her.
Cancer is amazing how it takes over a body's metabolism- she skipped a day of meal on Sunday, and she lost 2 oz.
Keeping my fingers crossed - she is on a borrowed time, I know.

Amazing you, Yunhee - getting Audrey to eat again! That should give you a little more time with her.

Congratulations!

Try baby food - puréed peas and chicken. (they sell them separately) It can be syringe fed and goes down easily.

Unfortunately, Audrey does not like baby food - she likes Wellness and A/D. I also can't syringe feed her because her tumor is on her jawbone, and I don't want to hurt her. I think I will put her to sleep before resorting to that.

I'm sorry to learn that Audrey's cancer has progressed to the point that she won't or can't eat...

Sending you and Audrey a hug,

Natalie
