|In the hospital, after placement...|
Last night when I was tucking her in, I told her, "Tomorrow you'll have had a g-button for THREE YEARS! Half of your life!" And she looked very concerned and said, "Oh? Will that thing happen to it?" I said, "What thing?" She said, "Like with the milk, when you have to throw it away?" Then I realized what she meant, "You mean, is it going to expire?" She nodded seriously and I assured her that wasn't the case, "YAY!" she said in reply. She loves her tube, it has made her life so much easier, healthier, and more pleasant. We were SO worried about it before we she had it placed, but it has TRULY been the best decision we have ever made for her. This morning she walked out to the car singing her little tubey "Happy Birthday!" :)
Here is a video from right after she had it placed, explaining it...such an adorable, wee little thing she was!
