    Wonderful!  That is great

    Wonderful!  That is great news.  Now you can begin using it.  I had an unusually close relationship with mine.  I put all medicine, herbs, food, etc in there.  I really appreciated that it kept me hydrated and well nourished.  I had my tube 9 months.  Too long.  For some reason I was reluctant to part with it, but we have now been parted 2 weeks.

    New PEG


    It feels great to get new PEG that doesn’t leak. It took me almost 2 years to convince my doctor to let me try the Mic-key low profile PEG and I had to buy it online because he don’t stock PEG buttons. I now have a new gastro doctor who does believe in making life as good as possible for people like me.


    Now I wish I had changed doctors a long time ago
