Re: Feeding Tube
Question from Don Parker on 09-28-2012:

Judie. There was a recent question regarding a feeding tube. My mother could no longer chew her food, she'd choke when trying. We realized that without a feeding tube, that she would die, either by choking to death, by pneumonia from inhaling food particles, or from starvation. A 'G-tube' was inserted through the wall of her stomach. She gained weight and was comfortable for three more years before she died.
