    @Mrs Green Grass: Not too much to say! He had an instance of "flash penetration" but he never let anything go in his lungs. We first tried with little sips from a tiny medicine cup, and then did a few sips through the straw.

    The radiologists are really good at being stone faced and I had to pry it out of them that he passed (they apparently are no longer supposed to say pass/fail, but "he failed to aspirate any liquid and we recommend that he can start having thin liquids"). Whatever man, it's the BEST.

    He will still have a long road ahead of him for getting off the feeding tube obviously. I tried giving him some of the oral rehydration solution he gets during the day and he drank about an oz, no problem. If he can drink 6oz of that stuff 3 times a day, he can be totally off the tube during the day, which would be SO GREAT.

    Thanks again everyone, there are too many of you to reply to
