This may seem a bit odd but two weeks ago I started to buy Smoothies for my hubby. He was struggling to drink even with the beaker which restricts the amount he can swallow. However once he had a Smoothie he guzzled it down!
Then I noticed he didn't always have it. Sometimes he had water flavoured with blackcurrant. The odd thing was he was able to drink it without choking.
Today I spoke to the manager at the home and she commented on it too! She said it was like the Smoothies had helped him with his swallow when it came to water. Is this just one of those blips that give you hope only for it to be lost again?
He has also started to put some weight on and to my amazement was doing exercises with his hands and arms today! Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
