    And a painful surgery. Will they start chemo? I think just play it by ear and see what she can tolerate p.o. I have seen ensure work miracles with people as far as building up their strength. If they will only drink one ounce an hour, they don''t get burned out on it and eventually will work up to 2 ounces...lotsa nutrition. I would say a lot of TLC and comfort measures and listening skills right now.
