I think it would make your in-laws feel much better to know their daughter is not starving.
The problem with a feeding tube is once it is in-legally- it is almost impossible to have it removed. This is a family decision and an extremely hard one. Been there - there were NO happy moments, NONE!
Prayers and understanding sent to the OP.
