What A Difference A Tube Makes

Brady got his g tube last Monday.I was so nervous about him getting it and I was against it at first.After Brady got it he was still vomiting.I was tired and defeated.I felt like Brady was just never going to stop vomiting.They started his feeds last Wednesday.It was a slow process but the vomiting has stopped!Brady is staying up more and he is getting his personality back.He is at his first goal.He is at 39ml/hr.We now have to increase so he stay off for a few hours.We are also going to start cycling the TPN so he will only use it at night.I am so glad he is getting better.There have been times where I have been so worried about him and after 7 months in the hospital it is about time he is closer to finally going home.
