Re: Lisa McPherson
I want to correct the data regarding what Lisa actually ate today.
Cold cuts were brought over -- she was interested in them but would not chew or swallow. I had some Herbalife protein powder & made a shake for her. She would not drink this. There were several very ripe bananas available to me, so I mashed one & put about a tablespoon of protein powder in it. She ate it very eagerly at first. I made a second batch which she was less interested in, even tried to hit away from her. I simply gave her a bite every few minutes and left her alone when she fought it.
She was lying down when I fed her. She tends to just hold things in her mouth or spit them out. I was making swallowing motions & rubbed my finger on her throat & she finally swallowed the first and next couple of bites I gave her. Then she was very in PT and interested in the rest.

I was on the watch from 3H30 AM to 4:00 PM. From 3H30 AM to 10H00 AM she was very nervous and violent. During that time she did not sleep. She slept only from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM, then waked up and has been awake since.
She has not been eating just drinking a little bit of orange juice, then she threw [illegible] away. She also refused to eat the food that was brought to her, including the protein drink that she usually takes.
The rest of the time she is just talking [illegible] questions and answers, like [illegible] would be asking her questions and she would [illegible] answer.
Much Love, Valerie
