Wednesday, November 24, 2010 8:38 AM, EST

The video swallow test showed NOTHING! She even managed to spit up at the end of the test and nothing refluxed into her lungs! It was a bit unnerving, she has the test at 8:30 AM and our phone rang befor 9 AM, we both thought there must be a problem, but no, it was just Allison calling to tell us the "good" news! Their conclusion is that she just can't coordinate falling asleep and eating and breathing at the same time and that she also can't coordinate screaming and starting to eat at the same time. Unlike a normal baby who is quieted when the bottle enters their mouth, she breaths in when she gets the bottle if she is overstimulated or upset, so Tori can only eat when she is pefectly calm! Certainly a challenge for a hungry almost 2 month old!
