Getting the tube tomorrow. Waiting now for the contrast. Have to try and swallow 2 cups by mouth in about 30 minutes. If that won’t work, they will put it down a tube in my nose!! Sounds awful. Hope I am strong enough to handle the swallow.....
Hope they take me by 4:00. Also planning to keep me until Friday or Saturday to adjust feedings. Must be something going on that I’m unaware of. I woke up choking yesterday, but no aspiration, etc. tried to eat ground turkey and gravy for lunch earlier. I think that gritty meat got stuck on my teeth and then went down with saliva when I slept. Only thing I can figure.
I hope all is going well, we are thinking of you. The offer still holds, if you get back to town and need formula.
Are they keeping you longer to make sure you have enough fluids going through you? That would be my guess. Specially since Thur was the second time to the ER.
Finally did the PEG at 8:45 tonight. I was awake the entire procedure. Even sent the RT home. Said wasn’t needed. Now talking about sending me home tomorrow.....hard to know what will happen. I just have to wait until the ball starts rolling I guess. In pain. Waiting for someone to order pain meds
