Hi Back:
We never had a plugging problem with the g-tube but understand that it can happen quite easily and can be cleared with coke. We flushed before and after each feeding (the line and container) and it seemed to keep things clear.

The CPP disability stuff impacts the amount his LTD will pay out (lord knows you shouldn't be able to get more money as a disabled person than as a healthy ione!) and I think the insurance company insists on it. I found that my MD. helped out a lot with that and with getting OT's and other specialists on board.

CHeers!
