what happens if??????

okay so for most of you you know that my dad is in the nursing home. well he is on a feeding tube. not alot solids or liquids. so i went to visit him today and he was coughing terribly to like where he couldn't catch his breath. someone had put a cup of water on his table and he was drinking it. does anyone know the effect this has with him and the feeding tube should i be worried he drank quite a bit?

  • sorry to hear about your dad..if that happened to me tho, i probably woulda mentioned something to the nurses while i was there..just so they can keep on top of him too..i mean, i know they might not be the greatest people..(so ive heard) but..i dunno, i woulda told them..i wouldnt know whether to worry or not..i would think no..because it is just water..but..if hes not allowed to have liquids or solids..then..really..i have no idea,,,
