PRAISE GOD ya'll are home and he is better! And that you are better, as well (being a mom...we worry a LOT!)! You all will continue to remain in our thoughts & prayers.
I'm sorry that I have no yummy recipes. I did think 'smoothie' when u mentioned ensure, etc. Perhaps ya'll can make some smoothies at home that he might like?!

BIG HUG for all of you

So glad things are back to "normal".

A tip on Ensure that you might want to try--mix it with flavored syrup and seltzer! Strawberry, chocolate, etc. Makes it less thick and more soda-fountain-ish.

So glad things are looking up!

On the recipe thing...I am a post gastric bypass gal (5 yrs) and my appetite in the beginning was so low that the smell of food really turned my stomach. But, my dietician at the time suggested if I couldn't get the ensure or boost down, to freeze it into an ice tray then run the cubes through the blender with a splash of skim milk and it made it nice and milk shake-like. I bet in his case a squirt of light chocolate syrup would help the taste a little. don't wanna over suger him, but it's a thought. I also ate hamburger gravy (not all the time of course). basically just browned groung beef and make your standard brown gravy from the brown bits after draining the fat. a little of that and some nice wam mashed potaties really felt good when i was sick as a kid and it was easy for me to eat when my "schedule" allowed for certain foods after surgery.
Just a tip...

Ingrid and Bink --

Thank you so much for the nutrition drink tips. I just read yours now, Bink, but I had read Ingrid's earlier & mentioned it to DS. He thought that the seltzer sounded like a great idea! These "Mighty Shakes" that we got @ the hospital are really quite good. They don't have that vitaminy taste like Boost and Ensure. The problem is that they are really, really rich, and it just makes him nauseous. So, I think cutting them w/ some seltzer or skim milk is a great idea!! I'll give it a try tomorrow. He is so thin, it's just scary.

Well, off to bed. Still tryin' to get caught up on my !

Nighty night!
