Right now Wayne is what you might say, “a little on the skinny side”. Wayne needs to be much more. It doesn’t seem likely he will be much more eating a measly 300-500 calories a day. The goal for him is to eat a minimum of 2,000 calories a day (I provide a good example of what he must do. I tell him, “do as I do”, but alas I am doing all the eating, well over 2,000 calories and he is not!!!!) Since we cannot shove food down his throat, we can do the next best thing and tube it down his throat. Even with the nasogastric tube (a tube that goes from the nose to the stomach) he will still need to eat and drink, which he can easily do with the tube. Wayne will now receive much more help, calories and protein and soon he will be much more than what he eats, he will be a strong, muscular dude. Bon appetit!
