It's strange, but Wylla hasn't regurgitated once since December. Prior to that, it was rare for her to go more than a week or two without an incident. And if it happened once, it would usually happen again, and she often had several days in a row where she struggled to keep meals down.
I've noticed she hasn't been taking her "vertical naps" lately. She figured out a long time ago that vertical is better when she's not feeling well and would sit calmly with her eyes closed while gravity moved food from her esophagus to her belly. It's been at least a month since I've seen her do this.
And she doesn't sound sloshy, either. After a meal, if she would run across the room, or jump from a high spot, you would hear the food in her esophagus slosh around. I honestly can't recall the last time I've heard her slosh.
Her energy has been so great lately and she's been extra-goofy. She definitely more active and she's always flopping over and trying to engage us all (Bean included) in play.
She's gained so much weight recently, too. When I put on the scale before breakfast yesterday, she weighed 7.5 pounds!
So, something's going on inside of her and it's definitely good.
Once she became an adult, I kind of gave up hope that she would grow out of her Megaesophagus, but maybe it's happening now? We'll just have to watch and see if things continue to improve. Even if they don't get better, I'm pretty happy with this "nearly normal" place she's at right now!
