Update

Hi Everyone,

Laura had a video feed today in which they x-rayed her while eating. She passed with flying colors and therefore does not have any problems swallowing or getting her food to the right place.

We have a nutrition plan now and she'll need to have so many ounces every few hours. This means getting an NG tube (through the nose) to facilitate these feedings. We can't wait to see her put on weight and are praying for 10 ounces gain before surgery in three weeks.

Otherwise the hospital staff are terrific, life is a little boring in a hospital room, but we are thankful for many blessings.

Glad to know that "mechanically" everything is just fine. She'll be fattening up in no time!
