Just finished a bowl of condensed vegetable soup. Took a little over four hours. Swallowing issue has been worse with the sinus infection. Hopefully, with my November 7th appointment, the ball will get rolling to get the swallowing issue straightened out. It's been "off and on" for over three years now. THAT'S one reason I haven't "went out" to eat in years. Have to stop and gag up stuff from time to time to continue eating.
