My granddaughter 9 days old in NICU can not swallow milk. Her larynx moves up but not forward so therefore the epiglottis does not work. Liquid goes straight to her lungs. She passed the cranial nerve examination the neurologist performed. She has a feeding tube in her nose. Now they want to put it on her belly button and send her home. No hope? But yet no other problems but epiglottis? Can this not be fixed?
