Oh, Judy! I'm so sorry that happened! At least he was still breathing. Do you know the Heimlich maneuver in case it should happen again? Maybe just cut his food into tiny pieces to be safe.
Hello Judith, wow what a scare! I'm glad it turned out okay. My husband's varices never bled. He had them banded twice before they ruptured...thank God. He used to eat a lot of nuts and seeds but after his banding and finding out what could have happened.....he stopped eating them......boy was I glad.
Take care.......thoughts and prayers......
Sounds like you have my luck. How strange is it to happen that Chicken would get caught in your husbands throat. Thank God they got it out. I really feel for you about the MELD score. I have had MELD score melt downs! After two years my husbands score is a wooping 12!!! I don't even want to ask. My thoughts are with you. Hang in there.
I will never complain again because my husband cuts his food in such small pieces! It takes him so long to eat I usually have to reheat his food twice. I always thought he did it because he is so dry and it hard to swallow chicken. I think I will bring on the smoothies again with protein. I'm glad your husband is OK.
