Well he has totally failed his fifth swallow study, so we are scheduled for G-tube surgery. Our "pre-flight inspection" as we call it, is next thursday at three. We'll schedule the actual surgery then and know wether he can go straight to the Mic-key or have to have a peg first. So it will probably happen in two weeks. I think I'm relieved. They don't even want to retest his swallow till he's one cause there has been no change and it's still abysmal. He aspirates 100% on liquid and thickened liquid. He doesn't aspirate on mashed potato consistancy, but if it makes him puke, he aspirates that. They don't see an end in sight for the tube feeding, she was talking about when he was four or five. But whatever it takes, it's what we have to do, so I'm cool with it.
