Mom's swallowing is the same as yesterday. She had a visit from the speech pathologist who recommended swallowing between bites of food, drinking liquids between bites and eating slowly, which Mom has no problem with. She was able to eat well today, just slowly and with lots of extra swallows.

Mom also worked out with her physical therapist today for the first time since coming back from the hospital. The main issue aside from all of the strength loss is that she lists to the left when she thinks she's upright. So she worked really hard today on relearning where her body should be in space. Balance is so difficult when visual cues are missing.
