Just checking back with you. You and your partner have been on my mind. Your last response brought back vivid memories of the anxiety I felt in trying to get David to eat. I wish I had some helpful advice - I remember that getting him to eat was next to impossible because it was next to impossible for him. And I remember how difficult it was to actually get time for myself when a loved one is in immediate crisis (fevers so forth). The mere fact that you are using this bulletin board is a wonderful way of making time and taking care of yourself.
I will continue to keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. And I honestly mean this - if you want to chat via the phone please feel free to contact me at my regular email --- firstname.lastname@example.org. I live on the west coast but I feel complete empathy for what you and he must be going through.
