Not a good start to the day with a full set of bedding to wash but the Enablement ladies got her cleaned up, dressed and ready for breakfast..
The baby food fruit puree idea worked quite well, she ate half a jar and also had about two sips of a milky coffee. And all was fine until a mid-morning trip to the loo. Another shower and a full set of clothes later she was back in the living room.
It has taken all day to dry the mattress protector on the Aga. I am SO getting a tumble drier tomorrow.
Thank you for all the helpful comments and suggestions for getting Ma to eat and drink. Unfortunately she won't eat fresh fruit or anything remotely crunchy, she doesn't like yoghurt or smoothies. She's gone off mashed potatoes and chips, biscuits and cake, won't eat pasta, rice or cous cous. So....
Today she's had the fruit puree I mentioned (it went down okish but I'm not sure she'll eat it long term) and half of a soft boiled egg, but left the bread and butter. However, this is approximately 100% more than she ate yesterday and therefore no bile attack tonight. I'm hoping that a steady supply of tiny portions might bring her appetite back a little bit.
Peter is coming tomorrow. It's 20:00hrs and she's already been up three times asking me where he is. This may be a long night.
