  1. My mother is really ill and seems to just be 'floating'. To explain: She had some abdominal issues that got out of hand, resulting in sepsis and surgery. In the month since surgery, she hasn't eaten. She originally went to a rehabilitation center after surgery, but with no eating, there's no energy available to spend on rehabbing. Her mind is pretty sharp most days while her body has withered. She's back to the hospital now and getting IV nutrition and undergoing tests everyday... It has me questioning - what is life? Where's the line between life and...not life? I visit and talk to her...and the doctors are searching for a solution. It just feels like a cycle that we can't figure out how to break. A bit of eaten food would maybe give her a bit of energy, which would give her some ability to rehab a little bit, even if just lifting her legs. In turn, that might stimulate some more hunger and the cycle would improve every day. It's like we're stuck on the shoulder of freeway, watching all the other cars wiz by when all we need is a spark to turn the engine the first time. At what point does a person decide that they're on the exit ramp, not the shoulder? I'm not the hard core foodie some of you are and I've never wanted a person to eat - just a bite or two - like this before. This life in limbo, represented by the lack of eating, seems awful. You all seem to have every food answer. I could use one now!
