Feeding Tube Placement
Hello all.Here is an update for you. Trent has really been down the last couple days. Since finding out last night that he needed a feeding tube, he has been really blue. This morning I felt so helpless as he lay there. The dietician came and said in spite of our best efforts last night Trent can not even come close to meeting his caloric requirements..so..they took him down to radiology around 11 and put the feeding tube in from his nose to his small intestine. They also gave him antianxiety meds...he came back with his spirits up, walked the halls with Rydel, and wanted to check the blog about him ( and comments) for the first time. Not sure if it was the " happy meds" or the relief of the procedure being done. We went from worry this morning to happiness seeing him perk up!!
