Am now eating pureed food and trying to come to terms with the aftermath of this 'happening'. Tried to include a pic of the tube feeding, but can't seem to manage it.......will try agin at a later date.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
