    Hey Wiz,

    I thought about you and Em today! As you all know, I'm a School Nurse at a Middle School (grades 6-8). Next door to us is an Elementry School. The two of us nurses, cover for each other, when needed. That nurse there is very pregnant, and I need to be available, if I need to cover!

    She has a 4 yr old boy, who has Downs and has a G-Tube since a baby. I needed to go review his feedings, so I went to do his G-Tube feeding. WHAT a precious little boy! He does know the drill! The feeding went so well. When we finished, I helped him down out of his chair, and he gave me a high 5 then a hug! I know this situation is scarey for you but trust me, it was an easy process!

    I just want you to know that you have a lot of support here in the forum, and we all know that you'll do great. They will make sure your trained and comfortable! Also, I'm just a phone call away, if you need some extra encouragement!

        I have worked with gastric tubes many times.They are not that complicated. The only thing that she will mind is the tape to hold it in place. I also always made a good habit of checking to make sure it is in the stomach.I used to put just a little air in a syringe and listen to hear the gurgle sound.If I heard that then I new it was okay.Sometimes children have a habit of pulling at the tubes.Perhaps they feel she needs all the good stuff that will help her gain quicker.

        You have had so much on your plate.God knows how much you can handle.I will keep you in my prayers.

          Oh Wiz..Im so sorry to hear our emmy is having problems..you mentioned a g tube..Andrew has had one for years..its not a big thing to use it..its scary the first couple of times but after that its just a routine..if they decided to use one it will be because of all the vitamins and nutrients and things in the formula that will help with the problems she is having now..the formula Andrew is on is especially for children with lung problems..my thoughts and prayers are with you and if you need to talk Im always here..luv and hugs

                      Sorry I've been MIA...Mark took Emmy to the doc's last week as she was having alot of trouble breathing and her doc decided to admit her after her xrays came back. We brought her home yesterday a few days earlier than they wanted but Mark had to go out of town this morning for the week and it just so happens that the kids are on mid winter break so I wouldn't have been able to be at the hospital and home at the same time.
                      Bad news is she hasn't gained any weight in a couple of months but the good news is..she hasn't lost any either. She has her breathing treatments, antibiotics and steroids so she should be cleared up in a few more days (I hope)

                      Someone needs to let me know about flowers or whatever for Jazz..God, I'm still in shock! Michelle sent me an email this am and said I probably already knew about Jazz's daughter so I had to get on to see...I wasn't expecting this...anything BUT this.

                        Liz you have sure had your hands full lately. I am glad you were able to pop on for a bit. I'm glad Emily is back home. And about the weight, Like you said at least she hasn't lost any either. Hang in there!
