I could use more support as I am new to my father\'s illness, he has parkinsons and also was diagnosed with having aneursym in his stomach. He is experiencing difficulty eating and swallowing foods, I've seen a nutritionist to help me come up with ideas to what to feed my father but, I'm having a difficult time with coping with him not eating. He is basically only on a liquid diet now.. as he has no desire to eat anything that I prepare him. He's gotten weaker and it's frustrating for me to see my father so frail and weak.His aneurysm is only 4cm. The his doctor also told us that this something that can not be taken lightly but told us not to worry about it. (Who doesn't worry about an illness..??) He also told us at this time, he since his aneurysm is only 4cm, he can not be operated on, but also we were informed that he was in no condition to withold a seven to eight hour operation because of his health and other illness. If there is anyone who can help me and lead me into the right direction on what to do. He doesn't want to go into a home and neither does any of my family members. Please if someone could give me guidance it would be great. I'm very scare to lose my father to an illness. I've lost my mom to pancreatic cancer only three years ago.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
