Thanks friends! All info helps, just hearing from people helps!
It's hard.........Mum really needs to put on weight, and she is a great lover of all things dairy. I have been looking at calorie counters, and think that maybe she should be upping her nut intake! They are full of calories, but non dairy. She is so cheesed (!!) off, as the little amount of weight she had gained has all been lost with the fever.
I will pass on what you have said. Living in a caravan (VERY basic) on a Greek Island is great, when all is well. But there is so much more available over here in terms of alternative health boosting stuff.
I want to find out what might help. I'm thinking of stuff like milk thistle, and essiac tea etc that will help to support her liver etc. Trying to tell her to cut back on dairy is a daunting prospect, but I will pass it on all the same. I wish I could get her on here!
I haven't time to buy stuff to take out Sunday, but can send it in the post to her.
Please tell me of any stuff you all think could help!!
Love and best wishes to you all. You are all coping with your own stuff. I feel so ignorant sometimes, I have so little idea about all the technical jargon etc etc, and have so little to give you all, other than kind words. But it is nice to have this site, as I feel supported when I am floundering around!
