Aspiration Update November 2014

A year ago today we were airlifted to Adelaide for an unrelated condition and while we were there the respiratory doctors investigated the cause of the cough Lulu's had  since she was about 6 months old. After numerous tests and consults with the speech pathologists, they discovered that Lulu wasn't swallowing properly. She was placed on thickened fluids and we were told that this may last for years. 'Most kids won't go to school with it'....

Well, what a difference a year makes! Lulu had a Barium Swallow test a few weeks ago and we were given the all clear. Her swallowing is perfect. As I mentioned yesterday, her immunity has been strong enough to kick the last few infections without antibiotics and we are so delighted that she no longer needs to have thickened fluids. Hooray!
