Sandi passed her "swallow test" this morning. This is an x-ray video of her swallowing some particularly bad testing barium contrast to see that it flows through her stomach into her intestine correctly through the new connection. That's super news.
We think she should be able to drink fluids now, but the Dr orders are still not to. Sandi has had no food in about 5 days. At this point, unless we find another way to get the order changed earlier, it's predicted that earliest change will be around 6 tonight.
This is tough. We have no rationale as to why the order is the way it is.
