the gift of chug-a-lug

Most would not think the ability to take swallows consecutively is any big deal. Not sips but swallows. The Patient has not been able to take more than one swallow at a time, resting for perhaps a minute between each one. Tonight he was able to take five -- count 'em, FIVE -- swallows consecutively. We celebrated with high fives, cheers all around and, for him, a piece of See's chocolate candy that he has not been able to eat (or taste) since he received it at Christmas. Another milestone has been reached in his long and winding road to recovery.
