PEG Tube done today, and Bob is spending night in hospital for observation and nutritional consult in the morning. We just got home, and he was resting comfortably when we left, on some good pain meds. He did have some pain from it - I guess from going through the stomach wall, blah blah... but he's ok.
They showed me how to flush the thing and briefly gave us an overview of how to use it. Will get the "offical" direction tomorrow. He won't need to use it until after his surgery on 9/15 but we have to flush it every day between now and then. That seems pretty simple. I guess my biggest concern is the crushing of the meds and sending them down the tube. But I am going to cross that bridge when i come to it.
Take care everyone, and thanks for the prayers.
