This Adorable Little Girl Emily Is Amazing
This is a baby who had a breathing tube inserted and removed 12 times.... she is 100% tube fed due to losing her oral motor ability.
Although we know Emily has a long road of therapy to be able to safely swallow food on her own, we have been trying to introduce her to flavors and begin to allow her to associate flavors with a satisfied belly...
Tonight at dinner I ordered chicken enchilada soup and Emily kept grabbing for it. So I finally let her try it. SHE LOVED IT!!!!! She kept signing for "more" and when it was all gone she threw a tantrum! I was so happy I could have cried! Don't take anything for granted. Even something as simple as the ability to taste a new food! Emily didn't cough once while swallowing (albeit small amounts) but this is so huge! Such a strong flavor for such a little girl! She is doing so well!
