Tubes went great! Granted I don't have a lot of outside entertainment these days, but it was kind of fun....or funny, at least. Garrett was absolutely hilarious and a perfect patient. They gave him the "happy juice" and said he's be asleep or very groggy in 10 min. 15 minutes later he was saying "whuuuzzzzz uuuuupppp" and making eyes at the nurses, like a 20 year old at a keg party. Other than a little post anesthesia crankiness, there was no aftermath, no recovery! We are so glad to have it over and I'm looking forward to removing 1 patient from my list:).
here is Ya doing some 'tummy time'
my niece feeding her "lilah" through her belly
fyi, here is her tube. kind of hard to see on here. there is a "button" on her belly (which is held in place on the inside with a water inflated balloon). you open the top, put on the connection tube, and gravity pulls the food in via syringe.
