Halloween was so fun this year! Gav dressed up as a 'Lightening McQueen' race car driver and Teagan was a sweet pea! She actually loved her costume and was all smiles the whole night. Gav was really into trick-or-treating this year and we were out there for almost 2 hours! He had to have a whole conversation with every neighbor that opened the door! He'd say,"Hey guys! Trick or treat-ing!" "I'm a raaaace car driver!"
Teagan had her swallow study on friday and thankfully it went really well! I had to bring a few empty bottles for the barium and they strapped her into a foamy booster seat in the x-ray machine. I fed her barium in different thicknesses to see how she swallowed and then we mixed some barium into a jar of baby food pears and fed her that. She hated the taste of all of it but swallowed enough down for the tech to get the pictures needed. It was determined that she isn't aspirating at all (yay!) and that she has a little reflux. We knew about the reflux and she is already taking Zantac for it so the tech didn't think we needed to make any changes. We will be seeing a speech therapist/feeding specialist starting next week though to see if we can get Teag to eat more. Right now there is no talk of needing the NG tube back in (yay again!) but she's not gaining much weight at all. So hopefully the therapist will have a few new tricks to help us pack on the pounds!
