i did it!
i made a decision that i think fits US best! i watched the tube feeding dvd today,and it all makes sense why he SHOULD have one..but since he LOOKS wonderful i am holding off..i am ONLY waiting until he quits gaining all together..but if and when he quits gaining an isnt eating any more than he is now then yes i feel he does need to get one because he ca not live on gummy bears and yogurt when he is 3 years old...i really dont wnt the g tube because i wnt him to be normal,look normal,and go to school,pay football and wrestle..and at some point have a gorgeous girlfriend who he falls in love with! i want nothing but te best for vince..but after watching the dvd and seeing it looks just like the piece where you blow up a beach ball it makes me feel better..it also makes me feel better seeing a litte girl flop on her belly with one..knowing that as clumsy as vince is he would be ok..it also says it can be done without anesthesia and is a really simple procedure..that it can be done overnight..so he could still eat his yogurt and gummy bears at age 3 but be getting the nutrition and fat that he needs...i want to continue with therapy and also try new foods that have more calories..he is on a strict high calorie det made by ME...lol..his dietician said if he likes pop so well to let him have it as long as it has calories,and i can use that for his meds such as vitamins and salt...thanks goodness!!!! all feedback is welcme,but please stay positive! and thank you for all the birthday wishes! :)
