FEES

Just finished up a FEES swallow study where they put a camera up through the nose to look down the throat at the swallow. Ask me how fun THAT was! Ugh. It’s all kinda complicated and I don’t feel like typing it a out on my phone right now, but the basics are that Evie isn’t moving the proper parts to safely swallow and the tons of secretions pouring down her throat don’t help things. No big revelations, just confirmation that things aren’t working properly. Now we wait around for a bed to open up bc Evie has to be admitted for 24 hours to trial the vent and teach us how to use it.
