They worked Ashley in today for her swallow study. We were hoping after 6 months of being on the nasty gel thickener in her drinks that it would have retrained her swallowing not to aspirate but unfortunately she still had some aspiration with every sip she took. However, it wasn't as much liquid going down the wrong tube as back in February so that was somewhat better. They want her to stay on the thickener for another 3 months then they will bring her in for another swallow test to see how it is then. Ash was bummed but won't let it get her down. She will go see the GI dr on the 19th and we will still be in contact with the Neurosurgeon through all the testing.
