“Mangiare” – eat up

It’s all up to him now. They have stopped his TPN, his meals by infusion. He will have to actually cut up the food, lift the fork to his mouth and eat, Eat, EAT. For my part, I provide a good example everyday and show him how easy it is to eat, Eat, EAT.  He needs a minimum of 1,000 calories per day.  I don’t know why this is so hard, I manage to eat that at every meal. He needs to eat small frequent meals. I need to eat less frequent meals and they should be small. We could really use Grandma Simonini right about now, “Whats a matta you!  I make-a apple pie for you. Mangiare, MANGIARE!!”

  1. Wayne, try that little kid airplane-flying-into-the-mouth thing. I’m clipping along at 3,000 calories a day using that!

    • Man with tremors, pretending to land food in the mouth…..NOT A PRETTY SIGHT!!! Of course you probably knew that, which is why you suggested it.

  2. I am so glad to hear Wayne is on the upswing. I read the blog everyday,Wayne must have the patience of Job(a man in the bible the lord did everything to but kill him) tell wayne to keep up the fight,we want him back.Love Steve and Jolene

    • Well, Wayne is not much on patience so Job must be lending him some. He is slowly improving, he can’t see it but all the rest of us can. Hopefully it won’t be long before he is up and going on his own. All the best to you all, love Wayne and Peeches

  3. 1000 calories that’s nothing for me! Good to hear he is back on food. Sounds like things are going in the right direction, need to get that boy home soon.

    Thanks again for your sympathy. It was greatly appreciated. .

    • Jacque, we are thinking of you and hope you are surrounding yourself with lots of happy memories. We hope that it won’t be long now before we are breaking bread together and definitely eating more that 1.000 calories. Loads of love, Wayne and Peeches
