my mom has a peg tube and when her hunger bell goes off, it goes off immediately... it's literally, no, i'm not hungry yet, then BAM! i'm starving, i need to eat now!
we are wondering if this might be considered a normal experience.
thankfully we've got her nutrition schedule down to a 20-minute window so we're prepared for when her hunger hits and i'm not worried in anyway about this... we're more curious and amazed at how this happens now that she's got the tube. Before the tube, she had what i better understand-- "i'm starting to get hungry. i'd better think about eating soon" thing.
