She's been drinking liquids today but doesn't want to eat anything yet. That's ok, because it's soft foods only until tomorrow, then we'll see how regular foods go.
If they go down fine she can stick with them. If they don't then she needs to stay on a soft food only diet indefinitely while we figure out what to do next.
All these years she's done a pretty good job of protecting her airway, but it's only a matter of time before she ends up getting very sick from aspirating food. When I told him how well the soft diet went a couple of months ago, he laughed. He said his main goal is to give her a good quality of life, which is to be able to enjoy food pain-free.
For tonight she is crabby and demanding. She's perseverating on wheelchairs for her stuffed animals and driving all the nurses nuts with that. I have a couple cute pictures to post but I left the cord for my camera at the hotel so I'll have to do that later.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and kind words this week. They mean the world to us.
