That Time Of Year

It’s that time of year again, when everyone comes down with something and lovingly shares it with everyone else. Over the past few weeks, illness has rotated around the house! It’s been….fun.

But there is good news. LE’s g tube really came in handy this year. She had some kind of stomach bug, and the poor kid was vomiting and miserable. However, her g tube gave us the opportunity to drain her belly in a less traditional way. She was able to drain into a bag, rather than vomit. Because of this, she was able to rest all day and woke up today feeling 100% better. We were even able to run Pedialyte through her tube overnight to keep her hydrated. It even gives us the option of giving her fever meds, even when she’s sleeping.

The Special Needs life is challenging. As a parent, you want your kids to be happy and healthy all the time, but we all know that isn’t realistic. So we go with the flow and appreciate every little thing that can help. In this case, her g tube helped us help her, and there was no fight!

I hope everyone is doing well!
