I suppose I could go on and on about all the mishaps, vomiting, and uncomfortable bellies that my little one has endured. But instead, I'm going to sing the praises of the G-Tube!
Every morning when I wake up my son I am so happy that he will have a nutritious breakfast. Straight through his tubie he gets fruit, oatmeal, peanut butter, olive oil and avocado! What other kid in his school gets that kind of breakfast?
When I pack his lunch for the school nurse to bolus, I am so proud to know he will have eggs, lentils, sunflower seeds, banana, applesauce, olive oil and avocado! Lot's of protein for gym time!
And when my peanut gets off the bus, I prepare a nice bolus of chicken, quinoa, veggies and walnuts. He'll have the same for dinner.
I guess what I'm saying is without the g-tube my Carter would not be here. I am so grateful for the technology that provides for his survival. I am so grateful for all the many forums I've visited with moms/dads just like me. And I am so happy to be able to share this website with you.
Hail to the G-Tube!
