Hey Donna

I just noticed in your signature section that your son has what my son has: dysphagia, we just found out in Sept. As I mentioned above he is having the G tube put in.. Any info would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks [:)]

Jaxon is having a G tube put in on Dec 23 he is currently on the NG tube for all feeding... Do any of you have any experience with this??? Please any advise would help....

I totally know what your going thru.. [:(] I wish you all the best and please keep us updated...

My son has the same problem and has been on thickened liquids since July.. We also found out he has multiple food allergies as well.

Email me if you want to talk.. I have learned alot about this over the last several months.

Good Luck.. I know it is hard to get them to drink it thick, my son can only have bottle or thru a straw, no cup of any sort.

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. Oh, my heart just breaks reading about him trying to drink his bath water. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you. You are a strong momma, he is so lucky to have you.

I will keep you both in my prayers.
