I do hope all of this gets resolved for you, please keep us updated on what your neuro says and what they decide on the gastric pacer. Big hugs!!! I know you're going through a lot right now.
about the knife and fork question, yes Mike has that problem too sometimes. He found it embarrassing too at first, especially in restaurants, but now if he has trouble he just hands me his plate. He likes his steak far too much to not order it At home we don't eat a lot of steak, but if we do I'll make a roast or something and slow cook it so its nice and tender to make it easier for him. Don't worry about it, going out is a nice treat and it seems your hubby is willing to help out with this issue.
Good luck with everything, please let us know what the neuro says on Tuesday!
