I am re-training Penny to swallow solid food. I am giving her small pieces of chicken and then pushing them to the tip of her throat with my finger and give her water. She then swallows the chicken, which she does not do without my help. She is more of a shark while eating, and is eating wet food on her own now. We still are syringe feeding her daily, because she still isn't drinking on her own. I am hoping that it may have to do with the swallowing. I sleep on the couch (because she is now sleeping downstairs), and she wakes me up in the morning nose into my face! Every day more of my Penny is coming back. She has maintained her weight, but hasn't gain or lost any.
Thank you for thinking of Penny. How is Thunder doing?
