Gulp gulp!

On Monday (April 8), Ollie had his first swallow study. During the study, they had him drink barium so they could see him swallowing on the X-ray. He sat in a baby recliner...literally just needed a cold drink, popcorn, and a tv! He had it made! I gave him a few swigs from the bottle, but he aspirated. Then we thickened up the bottle with rice since sometimes babies swallow better if consistency of the milk is thicker. Ollie still aspirated on the thickened milk, so no oral feedings for him as of right now.
