Deane got an NG tube four days ago. It was a long day at the hospital. The nurse got the tube in in one try – the best anyone has managed it. Deane was his usual brave self.
We came home without an IV pole so we found a truly Canadian solution – his sister’s first hockey stick duct taped to his wheelchair.
With that solution, we are now trying to figure out how to implement the “feeding” plan. The plan includes afternoon and evening snacks of Boost meal replacements and equal amounts of water plus two 300 ml of water to keep him hydrated. All of this plus three meals.
Today it wasn’t until 6 p.m. that Deane wasn’t ingesting something.
I wonder how this will work when we actually have something to do during the day?
