The throat Doctor (Speech Therapist) arrived today and explained to Jennie that the swallow test involved a spoonful of gooseberry jam to which had been added a coating of sunflower seeds.

Unfortunately and not very surprisingly, Jennie was unable to swallow this concoction fast enough to satisfy the expert. This is all very frustrating and it is likely that Jennie will now have to undergo a procedure to relocate the feeding tube through her nose to directly into her stomach.

She will ask for unadulterated raspberry jam next time!
