HOMECARE ESSENTIALS 13: PROPER FEEDING

Lechon is the singular item in Melit’s diet for five days prior to her attack. No defense there. So, we were very careful about her diet.

Comatose patients still need nutrition and do not survive on supplements.

THIS WE LEARNED ALONG THE WAY

Melit, ever since, has already a slow metabolism. But when she became comatose, her metabolism moves at a glacial pace. No amount of good nutrition can counter the attack of germs already happening in her body today.
