Thanks so much for your very helpful reply. I am so sorry Frodo is not feeling well.
It is possible he has a vestibular issue. That is similar to our motion sickness and causes nausea.
It is also possible his throat is sore due to the trach tube.
Give him 2 drops of honey by dropper every 4 - 6 hours to sooth his throat.
If his gums are pale he could have some bleeding from the surgery.
Sitting in the meat loaf position is an indication of pain or nausea.
Add one quarter of a ten mg pepcid A/C (famotidine) to a tablespoon or baby food.
Wait 20 minutes after he takes it to offer more food.
Make sure there is no onion or garlic in the baby food.
Warm the food to bring out the aroma.
Get a can of people tuna in water. Drain the water into a bowl and see if he will lap it up for hydration. If he does offer the tuna.
If he has pale gums or you see blood in urine or stool I would have him seen by a totally different clinic than the one that did the surgery.
Please let me know how Frodo is doing and if he eats. Reply here or if you prefer we can speak on the phone.
