Hi All,

Al has been having alot of mucous build up today. He also had eaten some chipped ham with his
eggs which is not on the good list. He has been having a difficult time since he tryed to eat that. So I'm wondering if he just irritated his new pipes or if he needs another dilation he just had one 3 weeks ago. I call the Dr. on call and she said to keep him on a
more liquid diet and see what happens. The office will call Monday and maybe schedule another
dilation.

Also he has an appt. with the oncologist on Wed. so should just watch and see how he does since he was a very bad boy.

Any suggestions are good for me.

Thanks,
Kath
