I just heard from Sandy, who said I could share, that Max has decided to get a feeding tube. He checked into the VA Medical Center yesterday and is being showered with attention. They expect the surgery to be done today or tomorrow. They know everone here is thinking of them.

I got the feeding tube last month. No problems, easy for my wife to feed "cans" and I still eat my mouth. A VA nurse explained from the beginning that this could make it easier for caregivers to ensure proper nutrition intake. Praying for smooth operation for Max!

So glad you decided to get the PEG! It's the only reason I'm gaining weight. Good luck Max!
