Tuesday Update

6:00 pm - Today Pat went for his swallow test at 8:30 a.m. and he couldn't swallow the drink. They wanted him to stand in front of the x-ray and drink at the same time. He was able to drink a little, but not enough to do the x-ray. The doctor in radiology was not very patient, therefore Pat wasn't either. He said it was a horrible experience. Pat has not been swollowing befor this test, so to be able to drink a huge amount seems pretty impossible to me. He was having trouble with ice chips. We just talked to the nurse and we have to wait until we see Dr. Lin tomorrow and see what he has to say. Pat is very disappointed because he was so looking forward to having that tube removed. Good news is that Pat slept from 11:00 pm to 4:00 am last night. He has had a very good day and starting to feel bored and fidgety!
Have a nice evening!
