Today he is smiley and almost back to his old self. We will be practicing feeding him, cleaning the tube, and getting all ready for discharge early evening if all goes well.
We gave him his meds through the tube this morning and it's such a relief how easy it is compared to forcing him to take them by mouth. I can say without a doubt we did the right thing!
We are tired, sleeping in the hospital is awful. We are happy the surgery is done and now we can focus on healing. And in 2-3 months we can put his Mic Key button in and you will barley know he has a g tube.
Morning naps. His tube is placed right under his rib cage and the tubing is about 6" long. The white band helps keep the tube from moving around. He still has an IV in his right arm which will come out shortly.
