GRRR!! If I was a dog I would go bite someone. Just had a sweet little girl come and assess Ray for speech therapy. She said all the right things, he did all the right things. So where is the evidence of the coughing fits, heaving etc he does before after and during meals? Not on show today.
And that seems to be the story. He falls at home but walks strongly into the doctor's rooms. He has incontinence problems but if questioned by the doctor says, with a boyish grin: "not often, not for a while now.
HE IS IN DENIAL and it really messes with my head.
He is going to have a modified Barium swallow under hospital supervision some time in the future, will have access to a therapy group in January and after that - may - get- some - therapy.
Anyone see anything wrong with this pattern? What are we supposed to do in the meantime? Pretend it all goes away!!!
If I sound MAD I really am!!!
