Thank you for all the kind thoughts. I'm about to head back up. Sorry I haven't been responding to others, I'm sure you all understand I've been spending my down time from the hospital with Duckie & husband.
There's some stress associated with the swallow test. Grandma hasn't been able to swallow liquids for several months and has been receiving those liquids through eating basically a fortified pudding several times a day. It looked like she wouldn't survive more than a few days on Friday morning. Now, if she begins to be fed again, she could maintain for possibly several weeks. While she's been lucid, she also suffers from dementia and Parkinson's. And now she has stroked and has seizures. As horrible as it sounds, I truly hope she doesn't pass the test tomorrow. I don't want to lose her, but I also don't want her to suffer more than a moment necessary.
Thank you again for all the support and kind word.
