swallowing takes long but sometimes coconut water or sweet drinks are quicker and work better to swallow. I am using high water content foods.
I always give steamed zucchini for breakfast. Prior on alternate days, filling a cup with diced cucumbers, melons, cucumber and celery as a liquid base so there is lots of liquid. There are approx 5 - 7 wet pull ups daily. another 2 at night into the morning.
