She was being fed through a feeding tube, not an IV. Big, big difference, because a feeding tube is much lower-maintenance. And her husband refused to allow any swallowing evaluations to see if she had the ability to at least drink liquids without the need for such a tube.

Has she eaten orally since her collapse? Don't you suppose
