I underwent a 3 hour upper G.I. and swallow study/x-ray yesterday, which showed that there was NO obstruction anywhere, and then my surgeon's assistant removed my feeding tube.
The surgeon said that he didn't know what could be causing so much acid reflux, but that maybe now that the tube is out, it would improve. Well, IT HAS ! I slept so much better last night, WITHOUT the saliva seeping down my esophagus and airway !
And, right now, I'm enjoying a bowl of chicken and rice soup, filled with crumbled crackers, and it is going down SO EASILY ! I am just flabbergasted ! (Forgive me, Lord, I should not be amazed by your mercy and grace at this point, but I am still humbled by it !)
2014 is going to be a FANTASTIC year !
