Hi. Mum is on a thickener for drinks, but not food yet, but I have noticed a change in the last week - her voice sounds more bubbly and she just coughed after eating her porridge. The speech therapist was supposed to come today but is off sick. I don't know how urgent it is to have her re-assessed. - should I call the doctor in case she's aspirating, or wait till the specialist can come - possibly at the end of the week. I'm a bit stressed x
