Texas Girl,

Call one of your local hospitals (preferrably the one your husband received treatment at) and ask to be connected to one of their dieticians. Tell them what is happening and ask them for help/recipes. They are a great resource.

I just checked and the Ensure website, Ensure, has a big section of recipes using their product--most very liquid/soft. There's a tab on the homepage for recipes.

Sending lots of hugs to you, sweetie!

Texasgirl I would definitely call up the hospital and ask for a dieticians and tell her your problem. I am sure that can Fax the info over or if you do not have a Fax just take down notes.

So what did the doctor or dietician say about a menu for your husband? I cant believe you've had to wait three days, thats outrageous.

how about something along the lines of a custard with less egg for a softer set. plenty of protein. and it needn't be sweet. you could add things like canned pumpkin filling and after baking top with sour cream. you could bake a dozen or two at a time and have them on hand, ready to go.
let me make sure that wine's ok before i use it.

TG - I certainly can't add to any of this great advice! Please forgive me if you know this - I'm just trying to thick ahead for you -
  • be careful when pureeing these soups in the blender that you don't fill too much as the top tends to blow off
  • If the texture is still a bit too chunky put through a mesh strainer

I found out with my sister that the only people paying attention to her were us, her family. Don't feel bad about having to stay on top of anyone to get some answers. Hugs to you sweetie! Great big hugs to you!!!
