|Lilian and coffee.|
|Oskar just slightly wired after less than half a teaspoon of tirimisu this afternoon.|
We met Prof. Marguerite Dunitz-Scheer for the first time today. We've spoken to her during the web wean but she was off the last couple of weeks. We both came away with much more confidence somehow. Lilian is still getting too much fluid via her tube. This time its the sugar water (for energy) that has to be reduced. Instead of 60ml six times a day we're going to aim for only four times a day and only when Lilian shows that she needs it. Until now we've given it to her regardless to meet the daily target.
Last session was OT. More beans but no swings today. We had a go with the finger syringe whilst she was tinkering with her beans. Not as successful as breakfast but still pretty good. She is definitely swallowing milk. Mette was worried about Lilian's ability to swallow but zero gags and a good 20ml went in this afternoon.
|Showing the syringe the hand because the wrist is pissed!|
|Go on then, just a drop.|
All in all a good day today. Such large amounts via the finger syringe was great plus the brief meeting with Marguerite really boosted us. We're still looking at returning to the UK next Friday for Christmas with my family. We're going to talk it over with the staff tomorrow.
