Thanks for the update! A thought just came to me and why I didn't think of this before baffles me.
Why she does not want to eat, as a retired RN you know being in surgery so long under sedation, that sedation is delivered by a trach tube. People and animals always suffer a sore throat with difficulty in swallowing for a few days post op.
Maybe freeze the broth and give it to her in ice cube form and chill all her other food?
Just like giving kids ice cream after having their tonsils out.
