He is only eating 250 calories today in solid food for 5 days, topped up with milk throughout the day with no interest in food whatsoever. Not even a McDonald's. 111 recommend taking him to a+e but will distress him so much it'll be useless

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
Nicola
