Posted by Dawn

My father really doesn't have an appetite. He only has 2 teeth on the bottom, due to treatment and cannot have pulled, he would bleed to death. He is down to 123 lbs and 5'6. I know high protein is being told is extremely important. Please help with food and drinks. Fresh Vegetables are not an option due to the threat of bacteria. He is 81 and a tuff old guy. Anything that might help with nose bleeds would be nice too.

 He's the only parent I have left.

You need to make sure your dad is eating nutritious, high protein and high vitamin foods.  Try feeding him eggs, fish, tofu, soy beans, soybean curd, soybean milk, dates and black beans.
