Our son and granddaughter were unable to visit today, so we have had a quiet day. As long as my weight is not falling, today is the very last day on my liquid (Peg) feed. This is a significant milestone on my road to full recovery. The Peg remains for liquids and medicines. Eventually, th-e Peg will be removed at the point I can eat, drink and take all medicines orally.
At the moment giddiness, a feeling like indigestion and swallow are my main stroke related issues.

I shall be on my liquid feed until around 6pm (fed via my stomach peg). The feed is currently 800ml a day which is supplemented by foods and drinks through my mouth about 4-5 times a day. If I go out, I can disconnect the feed for a short period.
As I write this I see I've had 277ml of the 800ml of liquid feed, so I shall be "connected up" for all of the afternoon. At least the unit is portable and can easily be moved around our home.
