Still No Food

My dad is still unable to swallow food or drink, and it's been 5 days that he's on saline. I have been by his side nonstop, and today is the first day that I noticed a decline in energy. We will need to make the decision soon and will probably need to opt for the PEG tube. The doctor assured us that it is a safe and fast procedure, and it can be removed later on if my dad can swallow again.
