I’m glad to know that he’s going back weekly for swallowing. It really is something that needs consistent work.
Just an aside, during one of John’s swallowing tests, the pill ( a real capsule) became lodged in his nose instead of going down. You should have seen the face of the SLP when she gave me the news. Of course, she assured me that it would eventually melt and so, no harm done. 😬
She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails... Elizabeth Edwards
