Okay, good and bad news! You should know by now we never get all good!

The good news is that Alex's swallow is fine. He is okay to keep drinking out of "big boy" cups and just taking small sips. So that was great news.

The bad news is that Alex is refluxing all the way up to his mouth. This puts Alex at major risk for aspiration. The radiologist is recommendin​g that Alex have surgery to stop the reflux. This surgery has been brought up to us by Dr. Koenig, so it wasn't a huge shock, but we have been trying so hard to avoid anesthesia. I am waiting to hear from Dr. Koenig.

I'll update as I know more!
