Default Re: Food options

I have an ALS specialist at Mt. Sinai in NYC, so I trust he knows what he's doing. It's really only in the last month that eating has become much more of a chore. I'll ask him about the barium swallow when I see him in July. Again, no peg discussions because I've been relatively maintaining weight (within 5 or so lbs.).

I should also add that my breathing is fine. I scored 98% on my last breath test. I don't know if that makes a difference regarding eating or not.
