You asked about feeding - I was warned not to force him to eat if he didn't want to. I pushed too hard on one occasion and he just threw it all up - and then some. Never again. Our poor PC victims do know what they can or cannot eat. Water was most important to Don towards the end. Always thirsty and urine was so dark! He did all right with Boost and ProSure until the final days but that was it.
One Hospice nurse said that, by that time, the food was only feeding the tumors. I had not heard that before and still don't know if it's true or not.
Make sure you eat as best as YOU can since you'll need the strength.
Big hugs again, Cindy
