First let me thank you all for your recommendation toward my worries..Robert went to his EMT appointment, they gave him med for what looked like oral thrush, and finally referral to a prosthetic dr who will work on his palate, this will help with his voice, eating and probably infections due to the food getting into his sinus. He still having short breath issues, but i am pretty sure he will be ok once he goes thru his second treatment. thank you guys, you are my straight in dark moments!!! love you all!!
