On the other hand, the GJ tube has been a security blanket for me. I have been able to put her meds in the J tube and KNOW that they're going where they need to and that they'll stay in. The formula goes in and stays in, and even if she were to get sick, I could still keep her hydrated through the J port. Without the J tube, there's the possibility that she could start vomiting again, which includes meds, formula, and anything else she has in her stomach. I think that having the meds go through the J tube for all this time has been a huge factor in why she finally stopped vomiting, so that part doesn't sit well with me.
|Good riddance, big huge GJ tube|
|Welcome back, nice little G tube!|
